In the utilities industry, operating at the highest level of efficiency and reliability, while reducing downtime, is a top priority. Operators at power plants need to be able to anticipate equipment failures in order to reduce maintenance costs. If a plant has advanced notice of a failure or needed maintenance, it could purchase power ahead of time at a lower price than a purchase on the spot market. By predicting upcoming equipment failures, plants can also stage machinery in advance, minimizing downtime.
Veros’ technology provides insights on equipment reliability and performance with real-time electrical waveform monitoring and predictive analytics. With Veros, plants can catch failures in the early stages, such as issues with:
- Voltage imbalance
- Bearing damage
