Torino Power Solutions Inc. says it has filed U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 62648227 for its updated distribution temperature sensor, which takes into account several improvements, including reduced lag time, smaller size and improved clamp for a multitude of cable line sizes.
The Company has been actively introducing it Power Line Monitoring system (“PLM”) to various utilities and is continuing discussions with an eastern, midwestern and western U.S. based utilities for potential installations. More recently, the Company has initiated discussions with a major utility in western Canada as well as an engineering company in the U.K. seeking PLM technology for existing customers.
Torino’s real-time Power Line Monitoring system for electrical power transmission and distribution (T&D) grids is seen as a critical component for the digital transformation of the electrician grid. T&D infrastructure is in urgent need of expansion and upgrading due to increasing population, growing loads (due to renewable energy sources like wind and solar) and aging equipment.
Utilities globally are investing in new technology to improve grid performance and reduce the cost for their customers. Torino’s patented microwave cavity sensor technology delivers real-time measurements that allow for closed loop Dynamic Line Rating leading to increased transmission capacity, improved grid resiliency, lower energy costs and bottleneck elimination. Torino PLM creates real-time situational awareness that will help prolong the life of powerline assets and help with the management of future distribution networks that are expected to host high concentrations of distributed energy resources which include distributed generation, renewable energy sources, local storage systems and flexible loads.
