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

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. The workshop entitled “Grid Awareness – applied from Copper to Cloud” aimed to address these […]

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 […]

The SOGNO (Service Oriented Grid for the Network of the Future) EU project (www.sogno-energy.eu ) predicts that the key evolution of Smart Grids in the coming decades will be virtualization bringing a revolution in data architectures. This will be the second Internet Protocol (IP) revolution in grid automation. IEC61850 brought the IP into grid automation, […]

For a typical medium-sized European DSO with. Turnover of €1B and operational Profits of 30%. RES increasing to 40%, Network issues and outages have the potential to reduce this profit by 25%, i.e. at least €70m of operational profits lost every year. An Active Distribution Management System enables a distribution Smart Grid that can cut […]

The Smart Grid will address the major shortcomings of the existing grid. In essence, it will provide utility companies with full visibility and control over their assets and services. The Smart Grid will be able to identify, locate and isolate a fault faster and thereby allow the utility provider to perform the repair more quickly. […]
