The technological areas are twofold, firstly the conductor mounted sensor detects the passage of fault current on distribution networks, recording accurate current waveform data and the dynamic rating monitoring solution can be applied to the management of heavily loaded circuits delivering potential connection solutions for Distributed Generation (DG), particularly wind where increased wind speed results in higher export, but also greater cooling of the overhead line and therefore providing an increased conductor rating
Development of a new system for on line measurement of conductor temperature and load.
