Analyzing impedance to determine location of events
Data analytics can effectively mine massive data streams to provide you
the actionable intelligence needed to keep your networks running smoothly
Fischer Block's ASAP Grid™Sensor Analytics System was developed to simplify the installation, operation and maintenance of a large, distributed sensor network. It leverages Fischer Block's line of advanced sensors as the intelligent devices in the field and is configured to look not only for faults but also pre-fault conditions as early warning indicators so preventative action can be taken to avoid an outage. The ASAP Grid™ Sensor Analytics System includes Fischer Block's ASAP Pro™ software anayltics platform as the data repository and integration platform for SCADA and DMS. The ASAP Pro™Software Analytics System analyzes three-phase RMS and high-speed data, instantaneously and over-time, to provide the utility engineer with enhanced visualizaiton into their network. ASAP Grid™ allows for small as well as large deployments by managing the sensors from configuration through data capture and streaming. Installations of 1000s of sensors are practical with the ASAP Grid™ Sensor Analytics Platform, managing administration, reporting, and analysis. The ASAP Grid™ system includes all the tools needed to install, manage and leverage an extensive sensor deployment.
Weak insulators, excessive arcing during capacitor bank or breaker switching, noisy load-tap changers, and loose connections, can all cause problems ultimately lead to network faults. Pre-fault detection is key to preventing faults and disturbances on a network. High-resolution waveform capture and analysis provides grid operators the insight and actionable intelligence they need to keep their networks up and running smoothly.

Fischer Block device sensors running ASAP ALERT™ capture high-resolution oscillography waveforms associated with faults and other network events and transmit select data or the entire waveform (either wired or wirelessly) to Fischer Block's ASAP Pro™ Sensor Analytics platform for further analysis.

High resolution waveform data can be captured at rates up to 130 samples per cycle, exceeding the sampling rate of most substation-based equipment. Fischer Block uses proprietary, patent-pending algorithms to correlate the high-resolution data with historical failure data in order to provide system operators with time-to-failure and end-of-life estimates on key assets.
