Doble Engineering has released three technology solutions to help increase the reliability of the power grid: dobleARMS, the M7100 Power Apparatus Analyzer and Protection Suite 2.2.

dobleARMS provides utilities with an online monitoring and risk assessment platform that delivers actionable diagnostic data to its users. dobleARMS integrates real-time monitoring and offline test data with a suite of intelligent, analytical tools. Its asset health scoring system lets users prioritize what requires immediate action while providing data needed to prepare long-term replacement and maintenance strategies.

Doble's M7100 testing tool is designed to automate various tests that were previously performed by several different pieces of equipment, substantially cutting down testing time. By reducing testing time, utilities can maximize their outage periods by performing more maintenance during the hours previously devoted to testing, the company says.

Protection Suite 2.2 is a software offering that helps utilities perform protection testing, data management and compliance reporting functions. Doble says the software was designed around North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) compliance standards.

"We understand the concerns of our clients and know the pressures they are under to ensure grid reliability while addressing increased demand, alternative energy sources, regulatory compliance and the impending knowledge gap due to the power industry's retiring workforce," says David Zabetakis, president of Doble. "Our mission is to help our clients become more efficient as we work together to maintain the reliability of an aging and changing power grid."
