Global temperatures and wildfire occurrence is on the rise. Can you take the heat?
Accidentally starting a wildfire is a universal concern that will become more critical to address as global climates become hotter and drier.
Aging, spark-intensive equipment can start wildfires that endanger your customers, finances and reputation. Moreover, your best option, disabling reclosing on high fire risk days, means your customers are without power under intense heat.
Arming your grid with a new low-spark protection strategy mitigates wildfire risk while promoting future network resilience and reliance.
A Low-Spark Solution
New, low-spark management strategies reduce the risk of vulnerable overhead lines and equipment at the edge of your grid.
1) Debris-less fuses for transformer protection. Complies with Australian Spark Production Standard 1033.1-1990 high-voltage fuse requirements and minimizes parts expelled.
2) Safer feeder reclosing, even on downed conductors. Reduces the arcs and sparks of fault-testing by using 95% less energy with PulseClosing® Technology.
3) Fuse-less and spark-minimizing lateral management. Uses vacuum interrupters for single-phase reclosers. CAL FIRE exemption status confirmed.
4) Spark-minimizing resettable fuses. Vacuum interrupters clear faults above overhead distribution transformers.
