BPL Global, Ltd. Key Developments

Optisense Network Inc. and BPL Global, Ltd. Collaborate for Smarter Power Lines

Optisense Network Inc. and BPL Global, Ltd. announced a collaboration for accelerating distribution automation insight beyond the substation. Optisense Network provides highly accurate measurement of 3-phase and single phase current and voltage power metrics through their optical-based sensor solution. Optisense’s real time data is processed by BPLG’s Connected Energy® Grid Management software, providing the operational insight needed by distribution grid operators. Downstream power metrics can be used by utilities for a variety of operational needs such as restoring service more quickly by identifying and locating line faults, improving Volt/VAR control, optimizing voltage for energy savings through conservation voltage reduction (CVR), managing power quality and protecting assets on congested circuits. OptiSensors™ are highly accurate, measuring power metrics to ±0.5% (including IEDs), versus competitive sensors with accuracy of ±1-2%. Patented, optical-based technology allows the sensors to take and store 15,000 measurements per second. Setting the standard for medium voltage line sensors, OptiSensors™ are designed with the accuracy and sampling rate necessary for advanced distribution automation. The Connected Energy® Grid Management software provides utility operations with the most significant and relevant information on power metrics in a timely manner, allowing operations personnel to quickly assess and respond to grid conditions.

BPL Global Ltd. Announces Next Generation Connected Energy Substation Automation Solution

BPL Global Ltd. announced its next generation Connected Energy(R) Substation Automation solution designed to enable substations as an intelligent hub within the broader smart grid. BPLG's solution delivers improved grid reliability and asset management as well as reduced maintenance costs through the integration of data from discrete substation systems and visualization for management and control of substation assets. Substations are evolving to contain more intelligent electronic devices (IED's) performing operational, protection and monitoring functions. BPLG's Substation Automation consolidates the significant amount of data from these IED's and provides grid operators a real-time view of substation status and operation as well as facilitating better management and control over substation assets. The challenges created by the growing number of IED's include multi-vendor compatibility issues and disparate communications protocols. BPLG's system meets these challenges through a modular, distributed processing architecture integrating multi-vendor devices combined with one of the broadest IED communications protocol libraries in the industry. BPLG's Substation Automation solution provides an integrated communications environment, collecting data from various substation IEDs in real time, processing the data and offering visualization, management and control of substation assets through the system's Human-Machine Interface (HMI). The substation data and visualization can be leveraged throughout the utility organization including grid operations, engineering, maintenance, planning and billing, improving the ROI of the automation investment. Further benefits include expanded access to a broader range of operational information that can speed management decision-making as well as preventive or remedial action needed to minimize outages and extend asset life. Substation Automation is part of the Connected Energy(R) suite of smart grid solutions including Transformer Monitoring, Demand Management, Grid Management and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Management. BPLG solutions collaborate across the grid on a common platform providing a higher return on investment in advanced distribution automation.
