Grid Management

Our Connected Energy® Grid Management solution expands monitoring throughout the distribution network supporting advanced distribution automation. Distribution circuits can now be continuously monitored, providing valuable information on the condition of the grid. This information can be used for a variety of operational needs such as improving volt/VAR control, optimizing voltage for CVR energy savings, restoring service more quickly by locating and identifying line faults, measuring power quality at renewables interconnects and protecting assets on congested circuits. Connected Energy offers leading edge Grid Management Software coupled with turnkey distribution line monitoring systems for a comprehensive grid management offering using multiple-vendor sensors to optimize cost and performance of the system.
