Get real time alerts to abnormal network conditions.
System stability parameters provided via synchronised phasor data are used to warn of impending problems and assist guiding remedial actions so to avoid costly and disruptive blackouts.
The Qualitrol Q-PMU system is a low cost device that captures synchrophasor data and sends it back to a central data concentrator. The Q-PMU can operate as a standalone device or be integrated into the multifunction IDM+ monitoring system.
Phasors are calculated by measuring the instantaneous voltage, current, and frequency, in turn providing operators with the heartbeat of their network - to keep their finger on and react accordingly.
Monitor System Stability
Enables various wide area measurement, protection and automation applications based on streaming synchronized phasor measurements and digital status.
Deploying PMUs across a network, simultaneously measuring phasors at strategic locations, can reveal various grid problems and empower operators to act.
The Qualitrol PMU is a scalable, modular substation hardened platform for connection to up to ten three-phase circuits to calculate and stream phasors in compliance to IEEE C37.118.1.
Connect to Existing Systems
The phasor measurement system from Qualitrol can be integrated as a low-cost standalone, distributed architecture for system wide PMU installations at various generation, transmission and distribution locations.
Alternatively, as part of an integrated real-time network monitoring system, this PMU technology can be delivered as part of a multifunction monitoring system using the Qualitrol IDM+ power system monitor.
Going beyond the IEEE Standard
This paper provides a summary of a joint testing exercise in volving Qualitrol, a utility and systems developer, that goes beyond the IEEE standard requirements to qualify the PMU for use in applications of interest for transmission system security and optimisation.
We're with you for all your Monitoring needs.
We work closely with end user teams to understand their challenges, information needs and existing architecture, so to help guide future specifications and investment decisions.
Our team can support system setup, from integration with existing architecture, through to triggering, automated actions and report writing.
With hundreds of installations across Australia, our network monitoring team has plenty of experience in the capture and utilisation of important fault and disturbance data.
We offer a range of services to support the lifetime operation of monitoring hardware and can customise this to suit individual networks.
