PDi2 sponsored a webinar, Driving Down O&M Costs with Underground Line Sensors, presented by Sentient Energy on November 10. Monitoring underground distribution feeders with line sensors is a proven way to improve reliability metrics such as outage duration. In addition, there are significant O&M cost savings to consider. In this webinar we’ll explore the potential operations and maintenance (O&M) savings offered by underground line sensing solutions.
Need to maximize cable pulling distances, reduce splices, and prevent damage to cables during installation? This webinar will highlight how extending cable pulls can greatly reduce the costs of undergrounding by eliminating vaults, splices, and electrical apparatus. When cable is installed in conduit it also decreases life-cycle costs of the system.
Underground cable systems offer a long-term capital solution to resiliency and can last far beyond typically quoted design lifetimes if they are installed correctly and operated within their design capabilities.
PDi2 participated in a webinar, Resilient Power Grids: Strategically Undergrounding Powerlines, put on by the DOE's Office of Electricity on March 22. Participants explored how strategic undergrounding of powerlines can make the grid more resilient by minimizing damages from threats such as extreme weather and wildfires.
How can utilities build a better and more resilient electric grid that serves the community when it is needed most? A new definition of microgrid is a good start. Join us for this free, live webinar sponsored by Power Delivery Intelligence Initiative.
