Project Description


Cable Transient Ampacity Software to Monitor the Temperature of Electric Cables

Principal Investigator – Franciso de Leon
Entrepreneurial Lead – Marc Diaz-Aguilo
Entrepreneurial Lead – Matthew Terraciano

The Project

C.TrAm is a piece of control and design software capable of computing the transient thermal behavior of power cable installations. It will help to reduce losses in cables and contribute to the overall efficiency of the power grid for potential savings of $30m/year. Improved monitoring will also reduce maintenance costs for potential savings of $100m/year. The team used the PowerBridgeNY funds to build and field test their software using data provided by Con Edison.
