Approved for Release: Micatu GridView™ Voltage and Current Sensors Reviewed by NYSP2I for Performance and Accuracy
by MichaelJ | Uncategorized | No Comments
The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I), at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), in partnership with Clarkson University (Clarkson), evaluated Micatu, Inc.’s GridView™ sensor performance with respect to industry standard medium voltage and current sensors. This project was supported by the NYSP2I through its Green Technology Accelerator Center (GTAC). NYSP2I at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), worked together with Clarkson University (Clarkson) to support Micatu with an independent evaluation of the performance of their GridView™ system. “Micatu engaged the resources of NYSP2I team to provide us with a wholly independent empirical review of our "all optical" sensor for medium voltage (MV) and current measurements. Finding a "world class" organization with the technical skills and measurement capabilities to provide an accurate, non biased, non-affiliated review of our "GridView™" sensor performance against a reference standard, was a challenge. As a result, Micatu is well on its way to helping utilities become more efficient and to reduce GHG emissions,” stated Michael Oshetski - Micatu's CEO.
