BG&E Using On-Ramp Total Reach Network for Smart Grid

February 1, 2013

In an article in Transmission and Distribution World BG&E presents the case for using wireless connected FCIs for grid optimization. The GridSense TIQ-P device was used for above and below ground feeder monitoring.

Advances in technology and communications have resulted in the development of FCIs with advanced features and communications capabilities. Today, FCIs are designed as low-cost sensing devices, which are easily deployed on the utility’s power system network. These devices can be installed on the power lines using a standard hot stick, which locks them into place…FCIs help utility personnel to identify a fault location faster, thus improving system reliability…
