A Typical substation (Switch Yard) consists of CT ( Current Transformer), PT ( Power Transformer), CB ( Circuit Breakers), Surge or Lightning Arrester, Busbars, Earth Connectors, Potential Transformer etc. These components are connected that form “joints”. Normally, over the period of time, these joints develop hot-spots which require timely and daily monitoring. These hot spots may cause breakdown of the sub station which may result in shutdown of plants which is dependent on power from the substation. It may also cause accident
So, it is important to monitor “host spots” in a substation regularly to prevent such breakdown or accidents.
ACCUOPT DCTMS-640 : Substation Monitoring System detects hot-spots in switch-yard or substation, prepares reports against every potential host-spots in “joints”, keep a record for analysis and displays them in control room.
DCTMS-640 helps preventive maintenance of your switch-yard/substation
Apart from above main components, a panel box that houses all power supplies, ( network equipment if any) are kept at the location near to the installation of the DCTMS-640. Also, it is normally mounted on a rugged pole at approx 45 degree angle to cover large area of the switch-yard or substation.
Normally, at least 1GBPS data link is required from the DCTMS-640 installation site to the control room where a Server Grade PC is located with INFRAVIEW Software. If continuous monitor is not needed, than multiple ( upto 8) units of DCTMS-640 can be connected to the same data link as well as the same PC.
