News Emitel S.A. and ZAE Sp. z o.o. establish cooperation in the implementation of a short-circuit detection system in medium voltage power grids.

Jointly implemented project utilizes new fault detectors and LoRaWAN communication and is directed to Distribution Network Operators (DSO). As part of the cooperation, Emitel will build a data transmission network which will be used by ZAE detectors to send messages of the power grid condition.

“The Smart Grid systems developed in the DSO structures have the function of transmitting measurement data and alarms by radio, which allows quick reconfiguration of the network and re-switching the current after excluding the affected section. Our role as constructors and suppliers, with many years of experience of specialized electronic devices for the power industry, is combining with new technologies of data transmission and processing – this is a new quality “- said Mirosław Szeleziński, President of ZAE.

“Emitel already has extensive experience in the LoRaWAN network that supports smart cities solutions, which is why we are happy that we can cooperate in this project. The area of cooperation between companies is very promising and holds a special place in Emitel’s development strategy. The use of low-energy LPWAN network enables the installation of signaling devices in every facility where such a need occurs. The advantage of Emitel is undoubtedly the ability to provide access to devices installed throughout the country, “said Maciej Staszak, Director of Strategy and Development, Vice President of the Board.
