Monitoring and Remote Control of Automatic Circuit Reclosers

Monitoring and Remote Control of Automatic Circuit Reclosers

The "Interregional Distribution Grid Company of North-West", Public Joint-Stock Company is a part of the group of companies "Rosseti" and carries out its activities within the territories of 7 constituent entities of the Federation located in the North-Western region.

The IDGC of the North-West plans to create its own network Lora for remote monitoring and control of the equipment. However, use of the Lora network is not cost-effective for 15% of the automatic circuit reclosers, therefore the IDGC plans to use the Iridium network for these automatic circuit reclosers.

Analysis of the transmitted data allowed to determine that their volume per month does not exceed a dozen of kilobytes, which made possible to use the SBD service for the automatic circuit reclosers.

Outfit capacity is about 3000 pcs. over the course of several years.

Reliability Above All sm

In early 2019, Iridium completed the $3 billion Iridium NEXT mission, which completely replaced the first-generation Iridium constellation. With an upgraded network, Iridium is poised now more than ever to meet the growing demand for global communications on land, at sea, and in the skies – far into the future.
