In the process of power distribution, the distribution transformer area is the power supply area of the voltage converter between high voltage and low voltage. It is at the end of the distribution network and at the user side. It is physically connected to power production and power consumption, and is responsible for a full range of power supply and consumption services for serving residents and industrial and commercial users.
However, low voltage, tripping, power-off, and power outages often occur during peak power consumption periods. In addition, the power grid system cannot quickly locate the fault source and deal with some small hidden dangers in time, which is likely to cause a large electrical fire accident.
The preceding problems have brought a lot of challenges to the work of the traditional distribution transformer area:
The IoT+distribution network system provides a new idea for solving the problems of the distribution transformer area: to build a solution for the smart distribution transformer area equipped with smart integration terminals. The solution helps monitor and evaluate the operation status of the distribution transformer area in real time, and provide a warning as required. This implementation helps provide intelligent management of the low-voltage distribution network in the distribution transformer area, proactively report power outages, and automatically transfer emergency repair work orders to front-line staff, making it more convenient and efficient to handle abnormalities in the distribution transformer area and customer demands, and shortening the troubleshooting time.
Neoway collaborates with Willfar, a well-known enterprise in power IoT, to develop smart distribution transformer terminals based on Neoway's 4G star module N720. The smart distribution transformer terminals have the characteristics of plug and play, equipment connectivity, comprehensive status awareness, application model upgrades, rapid business iteration, and efficient use of resources. This helps implement power quality monitoring and demand-side management in the distribution transformer area, and fully support the centralized detection and on-site intelligent management of the low-voltage distribution network by using distribution transformer terminals.
Since the 2G era, Neoway has held the No. 1 market share for 13 consecutive years in the power IoT industry in China; in 2021, Neoway ranked No. 1 market share in the India power IoT market. With abundant and reliable products, Neoway has successively provided stable, reliable and secure access communications for customers in the power industry in Europe, Southeast Asia, and other regions.
