Treetech participated in another great event as an exhibitor: the DistribuTECH 2018, one of the leading conferences in the United States Energy Distribution sector. This year's edition was held in…
Responsible for the conversion of half of the energy generated at Itaipu, Furnas Ibiúna Substation, located in São Paulo, is monitored by Treetech, with a network of integrated sensors by Sigma system. This form of online monitoring allows data collection on the substation equipment, as well as diagnostics and prognostics, and ensure advance in detecting possible problems.
The old mechanical system for detecting faults in Ibiúna was replaced by digital system Treetech. The project innovation was the use of a decentralized architecture, that is, the installed smart sensors (bushing monitoring, temperature monitoring oil and windings, for example) are autonomous and allow decision-making aimed at controlling and protecting transformers.
