Torino Power Solutions Enhances Powerline Monitoring Sensor

Vancouver, BC (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Torino Power Solutions Inc. (CSE:TPS) (Frankfurt:A143TE) (the “Company” or “Torino”), as part of its continuous technology development efforts, is pleased to announce that its engineers have further enhanced various performance characteristics of its Power Line Monitoring sensor system (“PLM”) over the last quarter. Furthermore, the Company’s senior engineer helped complete the latest rounds of testing at SICAME’s laboratory in Dervaux, France, in July.

Highlights:

  • The PLM sensor design has been optimized to allow for even more accurate readings while further enhancing overall robustness;
  • Torino engineers have produced a considerably lower cost radome, an ABS shell used to protect and insulate the sensor. The previous radome was one of the more expensive components of the PLM;
  • Software engineers have developed a new control server for the Interrogator (communications box placed on poles and towers) that manages multiple interrogators under one platform, creating faster performance and maximum flexibility for installation of multiple sensors.

Rav Mlait, CEO stated, “We are pleased with the pace of improved design and performance of our PLM sensors. Torino’s senior engineer has recently returned from France where work on the latest rounds of testing and evaluation was taking place. We believe our efforts to continuously improve our power line sensor solution will attract new clients and opportunities for Torino at a time when utilities globally are investing in new technology to improve grid performance.”

About TPS
Torino’s real-time Power Line Monitoring system for electrical power transmission and distribution (T&D) grids is seen as a critical component for the digital transformation of the electrician grid. T&D infrastructure is in urgent need of expansion and upgrading due to increasing population, growing loads (due to renewable energy sources like wind and solar) and aging equipment. Utilities globally are investing in new technology to improve grid performance and reduce cost for their customers. Torino’s patented microwave cavity sensor technology delivers real time measurements that allow for closed loop Dynamic Line Rating leading to increased transmission capacity, improved grid resiliency, lower energy costs and bottleneck elimination. Torino PLM creates real-time situational awareness that will help prolong the life of powerline assets and help with the management of future distribution networks that are expected to host high concentrations of distributed energy resources which include distributed generation, renewable energy sources, local storage systems and flexible loads.
