Technology Developed by Former PG&E Professionals
HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 29, 2023 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American:CEI) ("Camber" or the "Company"), and its joint venture partners are pleased to officially introduce for use by utilities around the world an expanded portfolio of fully developed, patent pending, ready-for-market proprietary Electrical Transmission and Distribution Open Conductor Detection Systems designed to detect unsafe and hazardous conditions for transmission lines and distribution lines of any length and any voltage.
The systems are designed to immediately identify (within a tenth of a second or less) when a conductor breaks or opens and to instantly de-energize the appropriate source of power, whether it be from a transmission line or distribution line. This novel approach affords our technology a unique advantage in detecting open conductors before they make contact with the ground.
Robert Stuart, co-founder of the Camber Protection System and former Manager of Operations Engineering of PG&E, stated "I have spent years applying all of my knowledge, expertise and focus toward this issue and am extremely pleased to announce we have a fully tested solution that every utility company or self-powered institution in North America, indeed the world, should explore for the best interests of its customers, employees and neighboring communities."
James Doris, Camber's President & CEO, stated "After recently completing steps to further enhance and protect our intellectual property portfolio through a series of additional patent applications, we were planning this fall to introduce the technology to a broader audience beyond the select few utilities that have been privy to its existence and features so far. But given the unfortunate circumstances and hardship being endured in places like Hawaii, California, Western Canada and other parts of the world we thought it was essential to expedite our product launch so other organizations can reach out directly to learn how we can assist".
The system owned by Camber and/or its joint venture partners differs from conventional technology in that it does not wait for a short circuit (or fault) to occur. Conventional technologies that have been used over the last 50 years rely on a short circuit to occur, meaning a conductor must either touch another conductor, touch ground or touch a grounded structure which causes a short circuit that conventional technology normally recognizes and shuts off the power source - this is too late to prevent an incendiary event.
Camber and its joint venture partners' products include software-based solutions that can be quickly and cost-effectively deployed within a utility's existing protective relay infrastructure, allowing the utility to protect its grid with greater confidence and reliability.
Existing Public Safety Power Shutdown Programs (PSPS) are Insufficient.
Many utilities have implemented Public Safety Power Shutdown programs where a utility manually shuts off electricity on transmission and distribution lines in fire-prone areas during high-risk periods. This strategy has limited effectiveness for the following reasons:
- The efficacy of this program depends on the judgement of the utility to correctly define the fire danger area.
- If an energized line outside of the designated fire area makes contact with ground or a grounded structure there is the danger of a fire starting.
- It must rely on communication between the utility and fire officials and communication between the utility and its customers.
