As the number of renewables and smart electronics added to the electricity network is constantly increasing, the power grid must cope with more dynamic stress each year. Grid operators need to be able to locate and respond to faults in the grid quickly, in order to prevent power outages and to keep the electricity network reliable and affordable.

DERlab member DNV GL has launched its upgraded Smart Cable Guard 2.0, which is a data-driven online monitoring solution. Smart Cable Guard 2.0 enables system operators to digitalize their operations and to repair weak spots before the grid fails. This will keep power grids safe and reliable, resulting up to 25% fewer failures compared to traditional methods.
