In case you haven’t been following iUS Tech’s hot streak of smart grid and energy articles and wins, here are two more to wet your whistle. The first is a review of smart grid start-ups to watch by Malena Amusa of Utility Dive which features a profile of iUS’s industry leading offerings. The second is yet another outstanding article by iUS’s Scott Zajkowski — this time on transformer monitoring.
Just what is transformer monitoring, you ask? In short, think of transformers as the gate keepers between your home, business, favorite restaurant, etc., and the power company’s transmission substation. Monitoring these transformers is essential to prevent those sometimes life-threatening, but always frustrating power outages that send us instantly halfway back to the stone age; as well as to help prevent power theft and better maintain vital grid hardware. In this article, Zajkowski highlights the secondary transformer as an essential component in the evolution of smart grid implementation.
