Monitoring of Telemetry and Control of Transformers

Monitoring of Telemetry and Control of Transformers

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 transformer substations, therefore the IDGC plans to use the Iridium network for these transformers.

The IDGC needs to monitor the following parameters of transformer substations in distant regions: temperature, voltage, frequency and intrusion.

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

Outfit capacity is about 6000 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.
