    Customer Story: SA Power Networks

    EcoStruxure™ ADMS creates a fully digitized smart grid ecosystem that provides SA Power Networks the insights they need to quickly restore power in the most extreme weather conditions.

    Discover EcoStruxure
  • Smarter, faster power restoration SA Power Networks

    1.5 million households rely on SA Power Networks to provide electricity through extreme weather conditions. See how EcoStruxure ADMS provides the insights needed to monitor and manage their vast network.

The Challenge

• Frequent loss of power due to network outages which take time to identify, repair and replace.  

• Critical facilities, hospitals, universities, airports, shopping centers and factories are all affected.

• The sheer size of the network area and the lack of SCADA coverage means that locating a fault can take a lot of time in rural areas.

• The environment is harsh and any overhead power line fault could cause a bushfire, so they must be localized, disconnected and isolated as quickly as possible. 

• This presents a risk to public safety, as a large proportion of the network relies on overhead conductors.
