About John O'Flaherty

A balanced and properly dimensioned grid has the same current flowing in each of its 3 phases, and no current in its neutral (or earth) return line. However a distribution grid continuously evolves, with its ever changing loads and their varying characteristics (e.g. harmonics generation), and distributed dynamic intermittent renewable energy sources (RES). So detecting […]

Research and field trials by the ADMS Team has identified that the outage challenges that Utilities face in managing their Smart Grids include 1.Fault Detection – permanent and intermittent faults on all network types to minimise outages and reduce regulatory fines by monitoring: Frequency and ROCOF (Rate of Change of Frequency) Voltage and Current amplitude […]

ADMS was represented by MAC at the EIC Innovators’ Summit at STATION Berlin, on 10-11 September 2018.ummit The European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot invited Europe’s most thrilling innovators to the EIC Innovators’ Summit. The two-day event brought together 1,000 top SMEs, investors, corporate representatives, researchers and influencers. The EIC Innovators’ Summit was an exceptional networking […]

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is hosting the Italian Measurement PhD Summer School “Italo Gorini” with students both from CERN and all over the Italian Universities, from 10th to 14th September 2018, in Geneva, Switzerland.  As part of that event, ADMS is being displayedin a poster session dedicated to creating synergies amongst young […]

“Grid Awareness – applied from Copper to Cloud” Electrical Utilities are facing the challenges of integrating an increasing number of renewable energies. At the same time the rise in the electrification of heat and transportation is changing people´s consumption habits, which puts a growing risk on network stability. Addressing these challenges, E.ON :agile accelerator and […]

An ADMS conference “Grid Awareness – applied from Copper to Cloud” will be co-hosted by E.ON :agile and Gridhound at the Super7000 Centre in Düsseldorf, Germany on Tuesday 4th September (1300-1730). The conference will enable Utilities to share their views and experience of Active Distribution Management prompted by the results of the pilots undertaken by […]

A workshop providing discussion and insights on the future management of Smart Grids, based on sharing and feedback from innovative pilots being undertaken by Utilities in Italy, Ireland and Germany, was hosted by the Department of Electric, Electronic and Information Engineering of the Università Di Bologna, on  4th June 2018, as an Energy Day event […]

ADMS was represented by MAC at the Free Electrons workshops in San Francisco on 26-29 June 2018. The energy market has seen rapid changes in recent years with the rise of renewables, decentralization of the energy system, regulatory uncertainties and disruptive new technologies. To stay ahead, there is a strong need for utilities to source […]
