The benefits for DSOs provided by ADMS include: (1) Improved network stability, capacity and increasing RES penetration integration with reduced grid inertia (2) Cost effective tools, fast and a complete Active Distribution Management Solution, (3) Innovative cost competitive solutions and (4) A mass deployable cost-effective solution right to the grid edge.
A critical challenge for Smartgrid ecosystems is to optimise the Return On Investment (ROI) for Power Utilities. ADMS is addressing this by creating product solutions to help DSOs to achieve their carbon reduction targets by enabling them to actively manage their networks in a disruptively innovative, but coherently distributed way, right down to low-voltages (LV) in support of lower carbon footprint technologies and new energy generation business models from green Renewable Energy Sources.
Project research has identified that the challenges that DSOs face in managing their grids include (a) Capacity Demand Measurement, (b) Regulatory Compliance, (c) Fault Monitoring / Detection, (d) Renewable Energy Management and (e) Network Power Quality. While the ADMS – Active Distribution Management System – is addressing these by providing the DSO’s with the benefits listed above.
ADMS provides these benefits by using a smart machine-learning Network Management System (NMS), that seamlessly monitors real-time data to the Grid Edge for LV/MV distribution systems, with (a) Smart LV/MV Monitoring, (b) Low-cost micro Phaser Measurement Units (mPMU)s, in a high-accuracy Distributed Sensor Network (DSN). The NMS is a network modelling and predictive behaviour platform, that uses the real-time readings from the mPMUs and LV/MV Monitor units, together with Articial Neural Networks (ANN) technology, to provide real and predictive analysis of grid behaviour, for all points of the network with only a minimal number of measurement nodes deployed. A fully integrated ADMS solution for Network Stability and Predictability
ADMS aims to have an operational product on the market, feeding into Altea’s established route to market through its global presence and commercial channels, using Gridhound’s and MAC’s component solutions, within 3 years from the start of this project. The ADMS will support Europe’s 2,400 DSOs in the active management and maximisation of RES in their grids, 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 (DSN) products and a ground-breaking Network Management System (NMS) using 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 an entire grid with a minimal number of monitoring nodes deployed on the network, helping DSOs achieve their 2020 and 2030 carbon reduction targets.
ADMS is seamlessly integrating mass deployable, low-cost LV/MV network monitoring units using its patented Flexible Magnetic Planer sensors, low cost micro Phasor Measurement Units (mPMU), and innovative patented data-driven Artificial-Neural-Networks (ANN) based NMS. These have been productised and tested by RWTH and UNIBO to meet the IEC61850 substation automation standard and mPMU enhanced with the patented TFT-WLS algorithm to meet the IEEE C37.118-1 standard.
The project will undertake field trials during 2018, that will involve the deployment of the Network Management System (NMS) and Distributed Sensor Network (DSN) of mPMUs and LV/MV Monitoring units on a network, to monitor its dynamic behaviour using the ADMS platform. The expected results until the end of the project will be to demonstrate and validate and be ready to commercially deploy an operational ADMS that:
a) Provides synchronized high-accuracy real-time monitoring to improve a grid’s performance and head-off faults, by augmenting the DSO’s existing grid management system.
b) Intelligently and continuously actively interacts with the DSO operators, to manage and better understand the behaviour and operation of their distribution network from MV to its LV grid edge.
c) Is a high performance, fully integrated, scalable and affordable mass-deployable interactive solution, that is easy to use and requires minimal training to use effectively, and is in demand by DSOs, system integrators and other potential customers.
