UTC Webinar: Traditional & Alternate Applications of Optical Ground Wire

March 3, 2021
Not available
This event has a fee
Registration is FREE to ALL Attendees !  
Optical ground wire, or as it is commonly referred to as OPGW, has become more and more an integral part of the electrical grid. It offers a multitude of functions from protecting the circuits from lightning strikes and running faults to ground as a traditional shield wire would, while also offering an optical pathway for utilities. This pathway can enable more efficient grid management in the form of SCADA and protective relay response, internal WANs, and in some cases additional revenue streams from leasing dark fiber to third parties. In today’s webinar, we will cover the traditional shield wire application of OPGW as well as dive into other lesser-known applications for which OPGW can be an excellent option.
