ADMSlogo2ADMS is a Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) project that aims to have an operational product on the market, feeding into ALTEA’s global presence and commercial channels, within 3 years from the start of this project. The ADMS will support Europe’s 2,400 Distribution System Operators (DSOs) in the active management of Renewable Energy Sources (RES), enabling 25% more RES on existing distribution networks by improving network stability by 20% while safeguarding regulatory compliance.

The ambitious ADMS solution is built on beyond state-of-the-art Distribution Sensor Network (DSO) products and ground-breaking Advanced Distribution Automation (ADA) data analytic/modelling technology that models and predicts Low Voltage (LV) (< 440V ac) and Medium Voltage (MV) (< 30kV ac) power distribution network behaviour and stability for the entire network with only a few DSO nodes deployed on the network, helping DSOs achieve their 2020 carbon reduction targets.

ADMS is seamlessly integrating (a) MAC’s mass deployable, low-cost network monitoring solutions (patented Flexible Magnetic sensors, micro Phasor Measurement Units (mPMU) and LV Network monitoring), and (b) Gridhound’s innovative patented data-driven Artificial-Neural-Networks-based Advanced Distribution Automation (ADA) monitoring system. These are being productised by RWTH to meet the IEC61850 substation automation standard and mPMU enhanced with the patented TFT-WLS algorithm to meet the IEEE C37.118-1 standard.

ADMS is productising an operational system that will impact and disruptively change the way DSOs manage and control their networks. The system will support the DSO’s existing grid management systems and offer an affordable roll-out option, where accurate predictions and live monitoring of the grid status can be performed across the entire network with only a small number of measurements nodes deployed, and does not require intensive monitoring of the entire network.

The target outcome and market impact objectives is an innovative ADMS that will benefit European DSOs to:

  1. Improve network stability by 20% by providing real-time information on the dynamic synchrophasor performance of their networks to enable early control action to maintain grid stability.
  2. Enable 25% more grid capacity by delivering power more efficiently on existing networks.
  3. Enable up to 25% more renewables contribution by making more use of available network capacity through improved network stability and efficiency, helping DSOs achieve their 2020 carbon targets.
  4. Reduce grid integration costs by 20% by optimising network setup through dynamic monitoring of network behaviour.
  5. Reduce networks outages duration and customer losses by 15%,
  6. Provide active customer load management, matching flexible customer loads to variable generation.

The ADMS project is featured in @CORDIS_EU Industrial Technologies, for providing efficient, low-cost monitoring for greener electricity grids. As renewable energy generation grows, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) need more adequate tools to operate their networks efficiently – with a key parameter being advanced automation. The ADMS project has devised such tools. It promises improved network […]
