ADMS Team

Research by the ADMS Team has identified that the challenges that Utilities face in managing their Smart Grids include

  • Capacity Demand Measurement,
  • Regulatory Compliance,
  • Fault Monitoring / Detection,
  • Renewable Energy Management
  • Network Power Quality.

An appropriate Active Distribution System Management system could address all of these to provide:

  • Fault Location Identification for System Restoration (FLISR)
  • State Estimation
  • Load Forecasting
  • Power Control
  • Power Quality Evaluation, and
  • Utility Key Performance Indicator (KPI) evaluation for quality of service evaluation

An Active Management System allows a utility company to increase its Smart Grid Capacity. Download our ebook  to find out how to transform your distribution grid

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 […]
