2020 Innovation Name: NOJA Power High Resolution SEF OSM Recloser
Awards: 4th Most Innovative Agriculture, Mining & Utilities Company
The NOJA Power High Resolution SEF OSM Recloser uses specialist sensors in power line circuit breakers to detect the small changes in electrical current that occur when an electrical fault happens. These signals are then fed through to a microprocessor controller for analysis and real-time recommendations. This is a completely new method designed to achieve the sensitivity required.
The success of this project has seen investment of over $20 M from the network owners to rapidly deploy this technology throughout their network, and it is expected that this technology will become standard practice across 20 countries.
