Siemens cloud-based data analytics applications for transmission industry showcased at Elecrama 2020

Siemens showcased digital transformer (Sensformer®) and digital switchgear (Sensgear®) at Elecrama 2020.Sensformer® merges physics and information and ensures digital intelligence for transformers regardless of their product class, size and rating. As transformers are placed at critical nodes of the power grid, they are perfect sensors for the grid providing key information on assets’ usage and status condition. Sensformer® contains the necessary sensors for providing the most important operating parameters, such as oil-level, temperature, LV winding current and GPS-positioning. The Sensformer® advanced takes this one step further by synchronizing with the Siemens digital twin operation and creating a completely new type of experience. Besides Sensformer®, Sensgear® digitalizes additional high voltage substation equipment, paving the way for the Internet of energy. Through fast and efficient collection, analysis and usage of mass data produced by power grid system and transmission equipment, asset related management decisions can be supported, and the equipment performance can be improved.Gerd Deusser, Head, Gas and Power, Siemens Limited, said, “Sensformer® and Sensgear® will help customers in the transmission industry to achieve efficiency, security and productivity. They provide added transparency and enhanced productivity with a connective and easy to use platform combined with comprehensive analytic applications which enable faster and intelligent decisions.”
