The project

To address the increasing demands for power, the Distribution Network Operators (who make up the UK national power network) need to optimise the performance and life of their substations.  As part of their Celsius project, Electricity North West Ltd working with Ricardo AEA commissioned ASH to develop a battery-powered wireless monitoring networked system that could be easily deployed on live remote substations to monitor temperature, voltage, current and power.  11,000 sensor points monitoring 520 substations have been installed.

  • Non-intrusive and fast all-weather installation
  • Easy sensor mounting with magnets or cable-ties
  • Powered by 3.5-year lifetime battery in each unit
  • Local radio connection from sensors to aggregation unit (Hub)
  • Daily data reporting to central database

It took ASH only 8 months from designing to installing manufactured KeLVN monitoring system items comprising

  • Temperature, voltage and current sensors
  • Local real-time data collection, processing and forwarding unit (Hex)
  • Unsteered GSM GPRS based data backhaul unit (Hub) with optimised cell site selection
  • Future-proofed design for easy addition of new sensor types (e.g. 4-20 mA)
