mPrest Expands Transformer Health Management Partnership with Energisa Group


mPrest, a developer and provider of distributed asset orchestration and optimization software for the energy market, will expand an ongoing partnership to provide additional use of the Transformer Health Management System (mTHM) of mPrest to Energisa Group, an energy distribution group in Brazil.

mTHM is part of mPrest’s Asset Performance Management (APM) system, a solution that supports a set of energy assets.

This is the second phase of an agreement between mPrest and Energisa to monitor and manage the health and reliability of Energisa’s power transformers and grid. Following the success of the first phase of the partnership, which began a year ago and included 112 transformers managed by mPrest’s mTHM solution, the expanded contract will include an additional 88 Energisa transformers. A total of 200 processors will now use mTHM’s real-time monitoring, analysis, accurate forecasting and condition alerts.

As one of the largest energy distribution and transmission utilities in Brazil, Energisa has nine Distributed System Operators (OSDs) in the five regions of Brazil.

These DSOs will continue to leverage mTHM’s predictive capabilities to reduce critical transformer malfunctions and outages as they serve approximately 8 million customers.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with Energisa Group as we together shape the future of the power grid,” said Andrew Bennett, CEO of mPrest Inc. “Our mTHM is a proven solution that has demonstrated an improved method of detecting transformer issues before critical failures occur. We look forward to expanding our work with Energisa and leveraging their expertise to improve and enhance our product’s capabilities. We are focused on improving health transformers and forecasting the future through mTHM for Energisa as they provide reliable power to their many customers.

mTHM will allow Energisa to continue monitoring critical transmission and distribution transformers to verify transformer condition, analyze risk of failure, and identify areas of degradation or concern that can be mitigated through maintenance or repair. This saves significant time and money in the short term, as outages can impact thousands of customers. Long-term savings in lifecycle costs of operations are also achieved through the mTHM platform, as transformer life is extended.
