mPrest, the mission-critical monitoring, control and big data analytics software leader for the Internet of Energy market, announced today the release of its Underground Residential Distribution (URD) Cable Fleet Maintenance Optimization application, a new smart power system for hard to access, sensor-less URD cables that minimizes asset failure and decreases the frequency of power outages.
URD cable fleet maintenance is a daunting and critical task – utilities maintain thousands of miles of URD cables, most of which were installed decades ago. Moreover, since these cables are sensor-less, utilities have limited visibility into their health condition.
Furthermore, in many cases these cables may be buried directly in the ground, with no ducts; thus increasing their replacement costs. Lack of insight into cable survivability makes it difficult to prioritize maintenance and replacement activities, predict impending failures, and take proactive steps to prevent those failures.
