The Lightning Arrester Verification Program from Exacter
Grid Assessment Data and Analytics, we can identify precise locations of both seen and unseen equipment deterioration across the grid - providing our clients with actionable information to improve reliability immediately, and also provide a process for continual annual improvement.
performs electrical grid assessments that provide reliability data and predictive analytics.
Tests completed by electric utilities in 4 distinct regions of North America using the EXACTER
Technology patented process indicate an immediate and measurable improvement in line performance.
Our field inspections reveal that many insulators that have flashed-over show no visual indications," states Exacter
Vice President, Geoffrey Bibo, "and the pre-flashover condition does not emit heat -- meaning they are invisible to both visual and infrared inspection methods.
The design of the sensor uses the EXACTER
Failure Signature Library[TM] to identify electric utility equipment that should be replaced.
Since 2007, Exacter
has been surveying overhead lines for more than 120 utilities, providing valuable distribution system maintenance and reliability information.
There are a variety of new solutions being developed in the utility industry using Exacter
technology that identify failing equipment in the formative stages - long before an outage incident.
In addition, certain PAR employees will receive training from Exacter
on the use of its exclusive technology and operational process that helps identify failing electric power transmission and distribution infrastructure and, thus, helps utilities to more proactively maintain their power system and better allocate resources.
provides utilities with reports that include GPS locations, maps, pole numbers, and photographs of the specific failing equipment -- everything needed to take pre-emptive corrective action.
Richard Damiano, Chief Engineer at Inland Power & Light in Eastern Washington, shared field results from his predictive maintenance program using Exacter
has an innovative technology, but I think what distinguishes our business is the commitment of our people to do whatever it takes to make our utility customers successful," states Exacter
President and CEO, John Lauletta.
COLUMBUS, Ohio & MONTERREY, Mexico -- Exacter
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- "One of the things that makes this conference so unique is the open sharing of actual utility field data using the latest technologies and system-hardening approaches," states Geoffrey Bibo, Vice President of Exacter
New reliability measures such as Exacter
predictive technology, the subject of major articles in recent T&D World and Utility Automation magazines, will be featured.
