AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution (T&D) division has signed an exclusive partnership contract with A. Eberle GmbH & Co. KG Nuremberg to provide studies and services using the A. Eberle Collapse-Prediction-System (CPSys). This agreement builds on more than 10 years of professional collaboration between the two companies.

A. Eberle is a German company focused on developing solutions for measuring, controlling and recording tasks for transformers and arc suppression coils.

The Collapse-Prediction-System from A. Eberle is a patented tool that offers a unique way of providing off-line network stability analyses by recording all small signals emitted at a variety of frequencies as well as on-line instability predictions by detecting bad dampings and divergence early. It allows users to analyze their network using highly accurate measurements, in addition to traditional model-based simulations. In fact, the level of the accuracy is so high that users can detect even hidden stability phenomena, and furthermore much quicker and sooner than they could using any other existing solution.

Under the terms of the partnership, AREVA T&D will have global exclusivity on using the Collapse-Prediction-System to perform a complete system analysis for its customers, in order to identify not just what their network instabilities are, but also exactly where they are and what is causing them. As a result of this sort of study, AREVA T&D and A. Eberle will be able to recommend a perfectly-suited solution to fix exactly what is wrong.

“The Collapse-Prediction Relay is a truly unique way of analyzing small signals to record and detect stability issues,” said Prof.-Dr. Fette from System&Dynamik of Paderborn, Germany, Business Partner of A. Eberle and the inventor of its algorithm.
