Increased interconnection capability of the low voltage networks, smart “local” energy and integration of renewable energy (such as distributed generation, demand response and active participation of end-users) can change the way we perceive low voltage energy supply today.
The IoT technologies can facilitate these changes, helping utilities and consumers to better manage their energy usage and their assets. Besides current, voltage and power (real, reactive and apparent) measurements, you can benefit from advanced power quality measurements (such as THD and harmonic analysis).
Furthermore, the system will better control the grid stability, equipment health, outages, faults, demand response coordination and events. Through a combination of intelligent sensing, edge based software analytics and data mining software capabilities, our solution offers strategic, actionable intelligence to the power companies.
Not only that the smart grid can monitor the entire infrastructure in real-time, measure and adjust electrical parameters or identify damaged components, but the users can also track and better understand their consumption habits. The Smart Grid philosophy allows the even end-users to become energy aware, transforming them into modern energy downloaders and uploaders.
