The GISNOVA monitoring system represents the latest state of the art for HV GIS monitoring by integrating partial discharge, circuit breaker and SF6 monitoring in a single platform.
According to the CIGRE/CIRED Joint Working Group A3.32, the goal of Non-Intrusive Condition Assessment Methods (NICAM) is to reduce the overall costs of asset management. Several techniques can be used to assess these benefits and from different perspectives:
Gas Insulated Switchgears have achieved a very high degree of reliability and availability, however, failures cannot be completely ruled out. In addition to manufacturing problems, defects may be induced during transportation, installation or aging process. Such defects must be identified as early as possible in order to avoid disruptions.
TECHIMP - ALTANOVA technology allows asset managers to adopt a monitoring strategy that guarantees maximum reliability of GIS. GISNOVA is a complete and modular monitoring system based on the monitoring and analysis of partial discharges, SF6 gas, and circuit breakers, avoiding most of the GIS failures that could be caused by lack of maintenance, aging, and electrical or overloads.
