Address Your Challenges

Network reliability and efficiency

With global megatrends transforming the world of energy, utilities must innovate to provide customers with reliable power, all the while running operations at maximum efficiency.

Asset lifecycle optimization

Optimizing CapEx/TotEx with asset investment planning is a key challenge. To succeed, utilities need risk-based asset management with predictive maintenance, and maintenance cost optimization.

Renewables integration

Distributed energy resources are changing the rules for electric distribution utilities. Digital innovation provides unprecedented levels of situational awareness and flexibility - key to their successful integration.

Digital Transformation

Digital technologies will undeniably improve the efficiency of distribution grids and utility operations, but their adoption comes with challenges: siloed applications, data proliferation, cybersecurity threats, workforce management, and more.

Best Practices for Creating Your Smart Grid Network Model

A real-time model of their distribution network enables utilities to implement Smart Grid strategies such as managing demand and integrating renewable energy sources. They build this model in an Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) based on accurate and up-to-date information of the distribution network infrastructure. Yet, a recent survey shows that less than 5% of utilities are confident about the quality of the network data. This paper discusses best practices for ensuring complete, correct and current data for a Smart Grid network model.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the technological ability to transform the way we plan our cities across the world. IoT connects people and governments to smart city solutions with the technology of Smart Grids, specially designed to take the place of the older structures which are showing signs of stagnation. The benefits of exploring IoT monitoring and regulation in relation to smart grids include - efficient energy management, promotes sustainable energy, better water & waste management.

What is meant by a smart grid?
A Smart Grid is an Electrical Grid possessing Automation, Communication and IT systems that can regulate power flows from points of generation to points of consumption.

What are the components of a smart grid?
The main components of a Smart Grid include - electric power generators, electric power substations, distribution lines, controllers, smart meters, collector links, and lastly, distribution and transmission control centres.

What is the main difference between a grid and a smart grid?
The primary difference between the two is that a smart grid facilitates two-sided communication while a traditional grid only allows one-sided communication.

What are smart grid solutions, and how does it work?
Smart grid solutions are exclusively designed to serve many purposes in the electrical industry, and the transition from conventional electric grids to smart grids is being driven by a number of factors, including energy market deregulation, transformations in metering processes, changes in the level of electricity production, changing regulations decentralization, the advent of the involved prosumer, rise of microgeneration and isolated microgrids, renewable energy directives with more energy sources, and new innovations like electrical vehicle charging points. Additionally, smart grid solutions deploy effective computer technology to provide the connectivity, automation and communication while enhancing operational efficiency, improving safety, and offering greater network reliability with cost reduction.

Why are smart grid solutions important?
Power companies use smart grid technology to reduce electricity costs while increasing revenue significantly through efficient operations. Smart grid technology can also reduce the likelihood of failure because demand response reduces the strain on power companies, particularly during peak periods. Pollutant emissions of CO2, NO2, and SO2 can also be reduced after smart grid technology is implemented in the power sector. As a result, it contributes to the preservation of the green environment while meeting sustainable goals.
