Distribution automation (DA) digitizes electrical distribution services and data, enabling utilities to see deep inside the grid — monitoring each asset from the substation level to the consumer’s door. Improved management of energy usage data and auto-restoration of power to consumers reduce outage times and maintain a higher level of power reliability. We bring the experience of building not only distribution systems, but also field area network (FAN) communications overlays integrated with distribution management systems (DMS) and intelligent devices in the field. Our experience includes DA implementations for last-mile broadband and mesh networks.
We can help deploy your network, program devices, and consult on overall schemes to use your electrical distribution data to maximize efficiency across your grid. Also, our PowerAlly® solution is a custom-engineered, vendor-neutral tool for intelligent power management.
