ABOUT US

Athena Power is a smart-sensing & data analytics company focused on critical power infrastructure modernization. The company manufactures low-cost, high functionality solutions for companies looking to improve their reliability, resiliency, and overall monitoring capability of their assets.

Athena Power is an engineering-driven company founded in Washington D.C./Baltimore and is 100% employee-owned and operated.

SOLUTION

Problem:
Continuous monitoring of underground (subsurface and padmount) assets for reliability improvement has traditionally been uneconomical and challenging for widespread adoption by utilities. Additionally, significant time is spent trying to find issues with underground power failures (such as underground faults). Current methodologies in finding underground power failures include ‘Thumping’ and ‘Sectionalizing’ the grid. These procedures are crude, expensive, time intensive, and further reduce long-term reliability.

Solution:
Athena Power developed and currently manufacturers low-cost/high functionality sensor solutions that are customizable to continually monitor underground assets. Athena’s solution is wireless, self-powered, and uses sophisticated algorithms to locate issues (such as UG faults) while providing a continuous stream of real-time data and analytics to improve operational intelligence.

Athena Power’s solution is oriented around open-architecture & standards. Our products are interoperable with various industry platforms to drive innovation and lower-costs for our customers.

APPLICATIONS

Our Products are Designed, Developed, Coded, and Manufactured in the USA.

  • Reliability & Resiliency

  • Distributed Generation / Renewable Energy Integration

  • Power Quality Analysis

  • Predicative Analytics
