Smart Grid Optimization Starts Here!

Echelon smart meters go one step further to provide power quality sensing capabilities that can better identify technical and non-technical line losses, detect theft and tampering at the meter, and provide localized outage information to help you better manage the distribution network allowing you to better protect your revenue, and maximize the life of your grid assets at the edge.

Smart Grid Optimization - April 2012 Smart Grid Optimization - April 2012 Presentation Transcript

  • THE OPTIMIZED GRID1
  • Key Take Aways What does the optimized grid look like? How far away from the future are we? How can you get there? Importance of standards in grid optimization2
  • Smart Energy Starts With Echelon 35M+ meters, 300,000 buildings, 500 cities 35M+ meters on 300,000 500 the Smart Grid Smart Buildings Smart Cities3
  • A Global Utility Customer Base Over 35M Meters Deployed and Growing!4
  • What is Grid Optimization? Smart Solar Substation Transformer Smart Buildings Grid optimization creates smart energy that reduces your expenses by: Transformer  Improving lifetime of the assets Smart Metering  Balancing loads to get the most efficiency from assets Transformer  Having more preventive maintenance to avoid outages Transformer Smart Street Lighting5
  • How Do you Get Smart Energy? Smart Solar Substation Transformer Smart Buildings Visibility and knowledge at the edge: Transformer  Transformer monitoring Smart Metering  Phase balancing  Near real-time grid health data from smart meters Transformer  Reliable PLC that can predict failures Transformer Smart Street Lighting6
  • Imagine a Grid that Detects Failures First  Fix the problem before the outage occurs  Reduce operating expenses in high labor markets  Your assets last longer  Leverage more renewables  Have happier customers  Improve safety7
  • HOW FAR AWAY FROM “THE FUTURE” ARE WE?8
  • How Far Away Are We? Smart Grid Optimization Solution Today Tomorrow Future Smart Metering Smart Metering + Grid Optimization Proactive Grid  Smart Metering  Billing solutions  Basic PQ values being collected  Basic rate structures  Little consumer participation9
  • How Far Away Are We? Smart Grid Optimization Solution Today Tomorrow Future Smart Metering Smart Metering + Grid Optimization Proactive Grid  Smart Metering  Transformer Monitoring  Billing solutions  Automation of LV controls (first monitoring)  Basic PQ values being collected  Usage of alarms in DMS  Basic rate structures  GIS integration  Little consumer participation  Basic Outage Management integration (reconciliation)  Asset monitoring and management  Reach to customers through portals and IHD10  More flexible rates
  • How Far Away Are We? Smart Grid Optimization Solution Today Tomorrow Future Smart Metering Smart Metering + Grid Optimization Proactive Grid  Smart Metering  Transformer Monitoring  Proactive grid management  Billing solutions  Automation of LV controls  Asset protection and fault (first monitoring) identification before problem  Basic PQ values being occurs collected  Usage of alarms in DMS  GIS integration  Integration of load analysis,  Basic rate structures DMS and distributed grid  Little consumer participation  Basic Outage Management management integration (reconciliation)  Participation of consumers in  Asset monitoring and electricity market buying and management selling electricity generated  Reach to customers through and/or stored at their premise portals and IHD11  More flexible rates
  • Getting There Leveraging the Assets You Already Have Today Smart Solar At the Smart Meter: Substation Transformer  Upgradeable firmware Smart Buildings  Capture power quality information, near real-time at the transformer  Rich set of energy and power quality Smart Meters Transformer elements  Provide data collection for billing and Transformer power quality at separate intervals Transformer Smart Meters Smart Street Lighting12
  • Getting There Leveraging the Assets You Already Have Today Smart Solar Substation Transformer Smart Buildings At the Transformer: Transformer Control Nodes  Turn into smart transformers by Transformer adding transformer monitoring  Collect temperature,Transformerand load peak load Smart Street Lighting13
  • Grid Optimization is Possible Today Leverage your smart metering infrastructure Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Smart Metering Smart Grid Optimization Proactive Grid Transformer  Step 1: Smart Meters are just grid sensors at the edge  Step 2: With simple monitoring, gather vital health information at the transformer, to see grid optimization benefits  Step 3: With meters or control nodes capable of digesting information, get near real-time distributed intelligence for a proactive grid to predict line failures before they occur.14
  • Standards OSGP includes important grid optimization requirements  Smart meters as a grid sensor Addresses not only billing, not power quality and all aspects of smart meters and other grid sensing devices  Turning transformers in to “smart transformers” Allow data to be requested (and/or digested) by a head-end or a data concentrator based application15
  • OSGP Backed By Industry Leaders Optimizing the Grid and Making it a Future Proof Investment16
  • In Conclusion You can get to grid optimization today: 1. Smart meters can be used as grid sensors 2. Transformers become “smart” with simple monitoring Standards are essential OSGP includes key grid optimization requirements – today!17
