Doble Engineering Releases New Technology To Help Utilities Increase Reliability Of Aging Power Grid

The M7100 also automates multiple tests, previously performed by several pieces of equipment, cutting down testing time from seven hours to one and a half hours. By dramatically reducing testing time, utilities can now maximize their outage periods by performing more maintenance during the hours previously devoted to testing.

Reliability and Compliance

Meeting compliance standards can be a challenging, but critical, part of proving the reliability of the grid. Pressure to improve reliability increased after major outages like the 2003 blackout where 50 million people lost power in parts of the US and Canada.

Doble works with utility clients to help them meet North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) compliance standards and audits by providing the necessary tools, like the new Protection Suite Software, which is designed to help utilities perform their protection testing, data management and compliance reporting.

"We understand the concerns of our clients and know the pressures they are under to ensure grid reliability while addressing increased demand, alternative energy sources, regulatory compliance and the impending knowledge gap due to the power industry's retiring workforce," said David Zabetakis, President of Doble Engineering Company.

"Our mission is to help our clients become more efficient as we work together to maintain the reliability of an aging and changing power grid. Innovations like Protection Suite, the M7100 and dobleARMS are designed to keep our clients on the cutting edge of technology that keeps them safe, saves them time, simplifies testing and gives them the actionable intelligence they need to make important decisions about their critical assets."
