      RELIABLE through the storm

      Keeping electricity flowing for 1.5 million households through the most extreme storms is a bold ambition. SA Power Networks depends on Schneider EcoStruxure™ Grid for RELIABLE monitoring and management of their vast network, helping to keep the people of South Australia safe through extreme weather conditions.

    • Facing the storm South Australia Power Networks

      Schneider Electric partners with SA Power Networks to battle the most extreme environmental conditions

      Challenge

      • Customers in South Australia may experience a loss of power supply due to network outages – and remain without power until the faults are pinpointed and an alternative supply is provided. 

      • This affects residential buildings as well as critical facilities and major customers, such as hospitals, universities, shopping centers, factories, airports, etc.

      • Finding a fault can take much longer in rural areas due to lack of SCADA coverage and long distances over a huge network area.

      • Faults on overhead power lines may even cause bushfires, so they must be localized, disconnected, and isolated as quickly as possible.

      • Another challenge is public safety, as a large proportion of South Australia’s network uses overhead conductors.
