Vision Analytics is a predictive process designed to improve overhead distribution system performance and reliability. Vision Analytics identifies where equipment related outages occur, and the betterment a utility can achieve with an Exacter assessment and the appropriate utility maintenance operations. This is a great tool for managing continuous improvement of overhead distribution assets.
Exacter system assessment technology is installed on 3rd party or utility owned aircrafts to collect assessment data during routine scheduled flights. Three levels of analysis allow utilities to track and trend transmission system health, investigate problematic structures, and pinpoint components responsible for problematic conditions.
Substations represent some of the most critical infrastructure of electric systems. Exacter Field Engineers visit substations with utility personnel. Field Engineers perform patented Exacter assessment inside the substation and upload assessment data for real-time analysis. Points of concern identified by the analysis are revisited by the Field Engineer to identify and pinpoint problematic component with Ultrasonic technology
Weather events have a significant impact on system performance and reliability. Exacter Storm Analysis provides utilities with a baseline for system health prior to when weather events occur. Following outage restoration efforts, Exacter will re-assess the affected areas of the system to identify components damaged during the weather event but not mitigated by restoration operations.
Safe, Accurate Testing of Problems in Underground Vaults
For vaults, Exacter has a proven method for detecting dangerous electrical insulation conditions without a service man having to enter the vault. This system has been used by a number of utilities and provides a new level of safety and accuracy for assessing issues in unknown underground vault environments.
Engaging Exacter on a predictive reliability project can be a turnkey operation. Once CMI and circuit data is received, Exacter provides the analysis, circuit targets, and projected impact for the project during the pre-survey stage. Then circuits are surveyed and problematic conditions and locations are investigated and pinpointed by Exacter field locating teams. Final reports are submitted including photographs of detriorating equipment, pole numbers, GPS location -- with all data available in GIS compatible formats.
