Electric utility EnerjiSA innovates dam monitoring
October 3, 2016
Intelligent data management, dashboards and early warning system streamline workflow of dam safety sensor data.
The continuous dam monitoring system is comprised of automatic and manual data acquisition, validation and correction of information collected, and modeling of structural behavior with a Hydrostatic-Season-Time (HST) model. An alarming feature reports anomalies to designated individuals. The
KISTERS dam safety monitoring and early warning system dashboard presents actionable data from dam safety sensors. Web-based dashboards quickly and clearly provide current information on the status of each dam, empowering dam safety surveillance and monitoring professionals to investigate issues and respond with accurate data.
The new enterprise system serves users in the office as well as in the field.
Following the successful completion of the pilot project, the Turkish electric utility is expanded implementation of the software solution to all 12 dams that supply clean, renewable energy in the form of hydropower.
EnerjiSA is a joint venture of Sabanci and E.On. As an energy producer, Enerjisa serves 9.2 million customers with a total installed capacity of 2.6 GW, of which 50 percent is from renewable energy sources.
