Chicago, IL, United States, 2014/04/10 - LumaSense Demos Novel Solutions for the Global Energy Market at Booth #3800 at IEEE Power and Energy Sector (PES) Transmission and Distribution (T & D) Conference - LumaSenseInc.com.
LumaSense experts ready to explain how major utilities are controlling and monitoring their retired and aging assets.
LumaSense Technologies, Inc. will exhibit a suite of products designed to allow customers to continuously monitor Load Tap Changers (LTCs) and transformers at the 2014 IEEE PES T & D Conference & Exposition in Chicago, IL from April 15-17th. This year is the 50th anniversary of the conference and will showcase the technologies, products, companies and minds that will lead the industry through the next 50 years and beyond.
According to the 2012 LumaSense Survey of power industry professionals, we learned that over 44% of transformers are 30+ years old but only a handful of utilities use technologies like online dissolved gas analysis to monitor transformer health. Sensors connected to software platforms that gather, visualize, and analyze data can help energy producers extend the life of aging assets. Other devices, including fiber optics, pyrometers and infrared cameras, are critical elements in ascertaining the condition of electric utility assets.
LumaSense invites T&D professionals to booth 3800 to discuss the problems they are encountering and solutions that might help them extend the life of their assets. LumaSense experts Subra Sankar (VP of Engineering and Development), Tim Dubbs (Director of Global Applications Engineering), Jeff Golarz (Director of T & D Solutions), and Dave Freeman (Director of Thermal Imaging) will be on-site at booth 3800 starting on Tuesday, April 15th at 10:00 am. This team will also provide interactive demonstrations of the following LumaSense products:
The SmartDGA System is a cost-effective online monitoring solution based on proven, state-of-the-art non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology. This suite of products is designed to allow customers to continuously monitor and control the condition of LTCs and transformers.
The LumaSMART® Fluoroptic® Thermometry Fiber Optic Temperature Sensing System for Winding Hot Spots is the most advanced and reliable real-time monitoring solution available today. With more than 30 years of fiber optic experience, LumaSense is the leader is Fiber Optic Technology (FOT), with decades of proven expertise. The LumaSMART FOT hot spot monitoring systems provide accurate, real-time temperature readings for protection and control of your critical power transformer assets. Monitoring the transformer winding hot spot is critical to safeguard the transformer from damage and extend its usage.
The LumaSHIELD® GaAs-Based Fiber Optic Temperature Solution for Winding Hot Spots is a high value, cost-effective alternative to LumaSense’s Flouroptic System that is based on field-proven Gallium Arsenide (GasAs) crystal technology used in transformers since the 1990’s. The LumaSHIELD controller’s direct, real-time temperature measurement addresses the critical issues encountered by transformer and electric utility managers.
The SF6 Leak Detector Monitor 3434i measures the total concentration of the SF6 gas in an enclosed area of a GIS Substation to determine the leak rate. By accurately measuring the leak rate, utilities can improve quality while decreasing costs and emissions.
LumaSpection for Substations: TS724DV is an automated, continuous thermal and visual imaging system used to identify thermal abnormalities within electrical substations and other process control systems.
