GIC Monitor

GIC Monitor

Project Summary

EPRI has a network of sensors on the neutrals of large network transformers that are susceptible to GICs (Geomagnetically Induced Currents). The network of monitors sends GICs, as well as voltage, currents, and harmonic levels back to a central server for visualization. Members of the project (called SUNBURST) can view their data at a 2s cadence. The data is used by EPRI for research on GIC forecasting, mitigation strategies, and vulnerability assessments.
