PrismaPower keeps your power transmission grid up and running, monitoring power lines.

How it works

Power Grid Response-ability at Scale

The PrismaPower suite of solutions enables transmission system operators to accurately monitor overhead and underground power lines for thousands of kilometers in real-time without installing additional sensors.

With the rise in renewables usage and grid congestion, extreme weather, and the push for optimization and digitization, keeping the electric transmission grid in check has never been more vital. However, the grid’s vast size and scale make consistent monitoring challenging.

Keeping your grid running smoothly is hard. We know it, and we’re here to help.

PrismaPower monitors the transmission grid without installing extra sensors on power lines or towers. Instead, it’s an easy deployment, utilizing the existing optical fiber network on top of the transmission grid. PrismaPower applications can measure wind metrics on every span for DLR and support regulatory demands such as FERC order 881. With the capability to detect extreme weather events, from icing to lightning strikes and wildfires, PrismaPower boosts grid resilience. Enhanced monitoring features that alert for electrical issues like short circuits, flashovers, and partial discharges ensure grid reliability. Pinpointing physical vandalism and vegetation hits increases asset integrity.

PrismaPower is effective on the installation day with a short ramp-up time and effort. Reflecting a significant cost reduction in grid monitoring, it is a solution always there, 24×7, anywhere, anytime, and in any weather.

It is your response-ability at the grid’s scale.

Solution Architecture

For the last 20 years, transmission system operators have deployed fiber optic cables as part of their transmission grid. PrismaPower turns the existing Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) into a set of highly sensitive distributed sensors extending for hundreds and thousands of kilometers. The solution connects to one single dark fiber at a substation, sensing the grid. PrismaPower’s machine learning algorithms take the detailed data collected on the grid to detect and classify events, pinpointing them down to tower locations in real-time. As a result, alerts have unprecedented accuracy – removing the nuisance of false alarms.​

Each unit covers 100 ckm of power lines concentrating all the information and alerts into one command and control center. This way, PrismaPower can continue scaling with the grid. Moreover, with the revolutionary Pay-as-You-Grow service model – PrismaPower is your way to take off some of the burdens of responsibility.
