Increase Security with Substation Video Monitoring
The electric grid has been identified as a potential target for terrorists and substations represent an exposed location for these threats. Live video surveillance represents a viable deterrent for attacks on substations; however, video monitoring requires significantly more bandwidth than the low-bandwidth communications used to enable SCADA. To enable video monitoring capabilities, utilities need to consider high-bandwidth alternatives supported by Smart Grid technology, such as fiber or broadband wireless.
With a high-bandwidth communications network for video monitoring, supported by Smart Grid technology, centralized systems can record video surveillance and operators can see real-time video feeds from the substation. With PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) video cameras, operators can also remotely control video cameras to focus on any portion of the substation. This can be combined with substation management applications to allow operators to visually confirm commands such as throwing a line switch.
With a high-bandwidth, two-way communication network, your utility can deploy video monitoring equipment that provides real-time monitoring, video recording and archiving.
