The Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) online surveillance of a 220 kV power cable system in Xiamen Power Utility, China helps preventing a potentially serious large-scale high voltage cable fault.
Continuous and cost-effective monitoring of the electric transmission and distribution grid is the essential success factor of Smart Grid implementations.
LIOS Technology recently completed the installation of its real time condition monitoring system supervising three 154kV high voltage cable systems at Samsung’s facility in Asan city, Korea.
Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) systems have become a well accepted and powerful tool in various markets like in the electrical energy industry, in fire detection and downhole well monitoring. Following a general trend, the initially isolated stand-alone DTS systems become recently more and more integrated into complex Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Taking current Smartgrid initiatives for instance, the DTS system has certainly grown out of pure temperature sensing.
Real time condition monitoring has become a well accepted tool for thermal assessment and accurate rating of transmission and distribution assets. However, the use of fibre optics as sensors for distributed temperature sensing (DTS) is a rather complex technology with many parameters to consider.
