The world needs innovative approaches to managing the world’s transmission and distribution (T&D) networks. Utilities across the globe are searching for new ideas on how to conserve energy, ensure reliable delivery, enable new services and provide for energy efficiencies —all leveraging a power grid that’s already strained by the demands of modern society. GEA is at the forefront of accelerating energy innovation to enable a smarter grid, helping utilities and countries around the world to advance toward using innovative technologies to meet the worlds energy needs.
Advanced Metering solutions provide high coverage rates, support a broad range of meter vendors, and interfaces with utilities’ back-office meter data management (MDM) systems to simplify the collection of and billing for energy consumption.
GEA Demand Response solutions enable utilities to directly connect with their customers and empower them to optimize their energy efficiency program to balance cost, comfort, and convenience while reducing peak load.
Reducing peak loads and deferring additional generation capacity are key initiatives for most smart utility networks. Demand Response (DR) programs that stimulate adoption, penetration, and retention provide the framework for realizing those peak load goals. Leveraging Home Area Network (HAN) devices in concert with DR programs dramatically improves the success of these programs.
Todaysdistribution model and in the future will feature the flow of power in two directions. This energy will come from new and different technologies connected the grid throughout the network from various sized suppliers.
(Advanced distribution management Systems )DMS) will provide the utility with the ability to adjust operating the system more actively and with the use of smart devices, sensors and advanced analysis applications.
This evolution will require the expansion of automation to all distribution substations and further onto the feeders with automated reclosers, switches, regulators, capacitors and other smart devices and sensors.
Meter Data Management
The advent of the Smart Grid and the use of Advanced Meter Infrastructure with generate more data than their legacy predecessors.
Intelligent energy management software control system is designed to reduce energy consumption, improve the utilization of the system, increase reliability, predict electrical system performance, and optimize energy usage to reduce cost.
