The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (DOE) has awarded PARC, General Electric (GE), and Consolidated Edison Company of New York (Con Edison) a contract to develop, prototype and demonstrate a low-cost, optically-based transformer monitoring system.

The product is called TRANSENSOR, which stands for Transformer Real-time Assessment Intelligent System with Embedded Network of Sensors and Optical Readout.

TRANSENSOR is a PARC product that will increase reliability and safety providing real-time asset health.

The contract is part of the DOE’s commitment creating a more reliable and resilient power grid.
