If you know what the future holds, you can anticipate on what it will bring
A medium voltage network that is continuously monitored by a fully automated system which immediately gives a warning when problems arise. This is a dream long held by many grid operators. Part of this dream is now realized by Smart Cable Guard. Smart Cable Guard is a unique monitoring system developed by DNV GL in cooperation with STW, the Technology Foundation of the Dutch government and Dutch grid operators. Smart Cable Guard does not only monitor the cable on weak spots which can lead to failures, but also locates the weak spots in the cable within an accuracy of ~1% of the total cable length.
