    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.

    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.
