Large-Scale Transmission Line Monitoring

Aug. 25, 2023
PrismaPower is a large-scale transmission line monitoring solution. It monitors thousands of miles of lines without installing any sensors, lines, or towers.

Monitoring the transmission grid was never as important as it is today, unlocking more renewable energy usage and dealing with more extreme weather conditions than ever before. PrismaPower is a large-scale transmission line monitoring solution. It monitors thousands of miles of lines without installing any sensors, lines, or towers. Using the existing optical fibers, it can measure, alert, and inspect transmission lines 24x7, locating events to the nearest tower.

The PrismaPower suite of products offers solutions for:

  • Dynamic Line Rating (DLR), a sensor-Free, distributed grid monitoring, compliant with FERC order 881
  • Physical and weather events monitoring, which helps grid resiliency by alerting on weather events (lighting strikes, galloping, icing, extreme winds), vegetation hits, vandalism, tower tampering, and more
  • Electrical events monitoring, which helps operators in their preventive maintenance by analyzing short circuits, flashovers, partial discharge & Corona, fiber cut, and fiber quality (OTDR), allowing ground team response before things get worse.

Every line span, every mile, monitored in real-time, ensuring optimal performance. With rapid substation-based deployment, it easily scales to grid size.

Prisma Photonics’ CEO, Dr. Eran Inbar, will participate in the panel “Improving Performance with GETs: Solution Providers Panel,” where he will discuss the latest GET developments and projects that are making real differences in grid performance. The panel will be on Wednesday, September 13, at 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
