For one of the biggest American renewable energy companies LIOS provided its well recognized DTS system for monitoring the temperature of two medium voltage power cables directly buried coming from a wind turbine towards the substation. All asset condition monitoring data from the controller is linked in real time by means of Modbus communication protocol to the operator’s SCADA system. The company is convinced by using DTS it has a better control over the thermal cable conditions thus over the load of the power cables which let it utilize its assets more economically. This is a great step for LIOS Technology to strengthen its position in USA for temperature monitoring of power cables at wind farms together with the recently opened office in Morganville, New Jersey.
