Cable Monitoring Solutions

Maximizing the utility, increase the operational performance and monitor the cable's health

Electricity is fundamental in today´s world. Power cables have become indispensable for the security of energy supply. Therefore, maximizing the utility of cable assets is both crucial and challenging. Fluctuating demands in different markets and environments, as well as new and renewable sources for energy supply, show the importance of transmitting power to where it is needed. Cable monitoring supports you in maximizing the throughput of your cables, avoiding failures and reducing outage time, as well as prolonging the lifetime of your cable systems.
NKT has over 130 years of experience in the cable industry. Our strategy is to work closely with several suppliers of sensor systems, e.g. fiber optic sensing systems, but also to develop state of the art monitoring systems ourselves, e.g. curvature monitoring described later.
But, the key benefits of a monitoring system comes when you integrate sensors together with real-life knowledge and experience. You need access to the experts to draw the right conclusions and make the right recommendations. NKT has that set of experts.

Real Time Thermal Rating (RTTR)

Distributed temperature sensing combined with detailed thermal models of your cable allow to acurately determine the real temperature of your cable in real time ensuring that permissible temperatures are not exceeded.
Real time thermal rating (RTTR) takes this further by predicting temperature evolution of a cable under various loads ultimately allowing to determine how much and how long a cable can be overloaded without reaching its thermal limits. This empowers our customers to selectively surpass normal cable loads, for example during periods of peak demand.

Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS)

DTS monitors onshore cable temperature in real-time. It helps in identifying hot-spots and enables temporary overload with a real-time thermal rating.
