Grid reliability – Advanced fault management
Keeping your grid reliable has never been more important. With the power usage patterns shifting dramatically in these challenging times, grid operators need to do make everything they can to avoid outages.
Fault management is key here as it lets you locate, isolate, and eliminate errors while rerouting the power to avoid affecting as many end-users as possible.
Discover in the use case document how you can get operations up and running faster using innovative advanced FLISR processes that speed restoration and reduce outages’ impact.
Grid efficiency – Reduction of technical losses
Grid modernization is a strategic initiative for many electricity companies and one key concern is improvement of grid efficiency.
The key performance indicator for grid efficiency of an electrical distribution network is the amount of losses The technical losses are due to energy dissipated in the conductors, equipment used for transmission, sub-transmission and distribution lines, and magnetic losses in transformers.
Technical losses depend on the network characteristics and the mode of operation. They can commonly be > 20% of the energy transferred to the users.
The electrical distribution systems must be properly designed, operated, and maintained to optimize these losses, learn more in the use case document.
DER Integration – Maximize DER penetration while minimizing curtailment
The impact of DER connections to the distribution network is no more a new subject.
Network operators know that every time a DER generation feeds into a network it raises the voltage at the connection point. With a high DER penetration rate, the voltage over the whole network will increase, and can quickly become a big issue if it is not managed properly.
The high DER penetration also goes with possible reverse power flow while the network is basically not designed to work in such conditions. The protection plan is no more appropriated, the possible imbalance between phases can occur if many dispersed generators are present among the network.
