Chronos becomes a Member of Power Networks Demonstration Centre

Chronos Technology, a leading international authority on resilient sync and timing solutions, has become a member of the Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC), a venture founded by government, industrial and academic partners with the aim of accelerating the adoption of innovative research and technologies from early stage research into business as usual adoption by the electricity industry.

For over 30 years Chronos has been delivering resilient sync and timing solutions and services in the UK and overseas for a range of sectors including Telecoms, Finance, Energy and Broadcast. Chronos joins the PNDC at a time where synchronisation and time measurement is key within the electricity networks, more so with the introduction of increasingly connected substations and greater deployment of Distributed Energy Resources (DER).

Duncan Smith, Business Development Manager with Chronos said “Timing and synchronisation between power plants and sub-stations is a key requirement in today’s Smart Grid. The ability to measure time in increments as small as a nanosecond is vital for efficient monitoring, phasor measurement, sampled values, resiliency and control of power plants and sub-stations to maintain safety and ensure continuity of supply.” He added “We are confident Chronos can take an active role in helping to transform the electricity grid to meet the complexities and demands of current and future generation and consumption via our membership of PNDC’s world class facility.”

Ibrahim Abdulhadi, Lead R&D Engineer at the PNDC added “Accurate and resilient time synchronisation is playing an increasingly critical role in enabling future grids. The expertise that Chronos Technology brings to the PNDC research forums will underpin key innovations in grid observability and operation”.

About PNDC

Building the next generation of energy networks requires collaboration and the PNDC connects stakeholders through every stage of the innovation process. The unique facility enables highly realistic and accelerated technology testing alongside a rich portfolio of research programmes across the full Smart Grid domain.
