Sentient Energy and OnPoint Digital, both owned by Koch Engineered Solutions, will team up to combine and expand their solution on predictive analytics for electric utilities; the collaboration will bring extensive electrical expertise and deep domain of the sector.
Specifically, the collaboration will combine Sentient’s intelligent grid sensors, with OnPoint’s digital platform, for predictive analysis for electrical outcomes, as well as performance-analytics; environmental and other situational data analysis, to produce a unique tool, valuable for grid operators.
Sentient Energy’s sensors procures high-fidelity waveform data; combined with OnPoint’s CORTEX platform, which leverages and filters these data; solutions provided by both companies will significantly speed up analytics time; they will also create scalable and actionable predictions for scenarios specific to each utility.
For example, actionable, location-specific insights on failures and how to avoid them, it will also enable proactive maintenance before they become outages, and will procure safety, reliability and lower operational and maintenance costs for grid operators and stakeholders.
