A Key Opportunity
Large commercial and industrial (C&I) energy users represent the majority of your utility’s load and revenue. And in the age of deregulated energy markets and distributed generation, these customers have more choice than ever before—providing the highest level of service and value to these customers is mission critical. Itron can help.
Unlock the Value of Transformer Monitoring
Real time visibility into how your transformers are operating provides distinctive business value. Itron’s Distribution Transformer Monitoring (DTM) solution combines Itron’s advanced DTM metering technology with our software and analytics capabilities in a managed services offering to provide accurate monitoring and supervision of these critical assets.
Non-technical losses represent a significant drain on financial performance. Currently, utilities have very limited information on where these losses actually occur. By measuring the power flowing through distribution transformers, you can have a vital source of data to quantify and locate the sources of technical loss, ensure proper transformer loading, identify and locate energy theft, and maximize the operational life of the asset.
Consumption from all LV meters linked to a distribution transformer can be retrieved, calculated and then compared against the calculated DTM meter value. Plus technical losses of the transformer, to create an accurate estimation of all non-technical losses on LV side of the network. This information can be used to:
- Identify and minimize non-technical losses on the grid
- Reduce and eliminate unbilled energy consumption
- Accurately pinpoint potential theft and provide near real-time data for analysis
- Graphically illustrate where non-technical loss is occurring
