The core of the GridGuard team is four Hungarian power line experts with university background and industrial experience who have been working together since 2016 for reliable sensor monitoring of electricity systems.
We have a strong relationship with the High Voltage Laboratory of BME (Budapest University of Technology and Economics) to test and improve our products and international industrial partners to make validations under field conditions.
In recent years, team members have participated in H2020 EU-funded international collaborations such as the:
FARCROSS – FAcilitating Regional CROSS-border Electricity Transmission through Innovation
WP5 aimed to develop and integrate DLR techniques and Health Monitoring systems that can analyze and predict residual service life and safe operation of the transmission lines with the associated risk.
These projects aimed to establish different pilot DLR systems in European countries, such as Spain, Austria, Slovenia, Greece, Hungary, etc.). Regarding the joint projects, the team has considerable experience on both TSO (APG, HOPS, IPTO, MAVIR and Red Electrica) and DSO (E.ON, ELJ and MVM) levels.
During the joint work, GridGuard experts experience a lot and identified several subject areas that were insufficiently addressed or ignored by other manufacturers and specialists.
The common algorithm and hardware developments results were published in numerous international conferences and journal papers, and 2 Ph.D. theses summarize the most significant innovations – these provide the framework of the GridGuard system.
The GridGuard team combines well the transition between different power line topics, as its members are active in many CIGRE and IEEE committees, the focus of which are:
GridGuard promotes more resilient and reliable grid utilization with hardware, software, and knowledge in the evolving electricity system
Our vision is to create electricity grids in which safety, reliability, and flexibility are not mutually exclusive factors.
GRIDGUARD promises to revolutionize grid management, foster trust, and inspire confidence among its stakeholders by adhering to these values and principles. It positions the brand as a leader, protector, and innovator in Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) systems.
