GE's Grid IQ Solutions Help Reduce the Risk of Unexpected Transformer Failures and Unplanned Power Outages by Up to 80 Percent
“We can reduce the risk of unexpected failure and unplanned outages by up to 80 percent when compared to unmonitored transformers,” said Luke Clemente, general manager metering and sensing systems-digital energy for GE Energy Services. “In these unprecedented times of future power uncertainty, we are excited that GE’s Grid IQ solutions can provide our customers with the confidence of supply continuity; safe in the knowledge that assets are unlikely to fail without warning.”
Monitoring and diagnostics combines advanced sensors and powerful analytical software with the wide experience of GE Energy engineers to enable knowledge-based decisions on transformer maintenance, repair and replacement. GE’s focus on prevention enables true condition-based maintenance that helps eliminate wasted time and money associated with performing routine inspection on healthy transformers that are in no need of service.
