The Adaptive Power Challenge is an SCTE initiative to embrace adaptive power and create a more efficient way for broadband providers to use energy. One of the categories is Monitoring and measurement, that help that cable operator and utility provider gain a better understanding of the utility network.
Cable operators have hundreds to thousands of DOCSIS enabled power supplies in their HFC network. These power supplies could provide measurement points to gather power conditions across the utility grid for the utility provider and to provide accurate power consumption at the power supply site.
Current measurements at the power supply are not as accurate as the utility provider requires. This project would create precision measurements for voltage, current, frequency, and power at the power supply.
