Low voltage grid analytics: A Vattenfall case study

Discover how Swedish distribution system operator Vattenfall realised operational savings with power line communication and the creation of grid awareness in an AMI network.

Recorded: 18 Sep 2017

Webinar Overview

New opportunities for distribution operational savings can be created by the intersection of power line based communications and edge computing with smart metering. This webinar will explain how Swedish distribution system operator (DSO) Vattenfall increased its visibility beyond the medium voltage grid into the low voltage grid, and identify how other DSOs can obtain similar benefits from leveraging their advanced metering infrastructure systems.

The session will also look at the potential for increased operational savings while improving service quality. In this webinar, you will learn about: 

  • Common problems that can be addressed by accurate low-voltage grid topology mapping 
  • Sensing at the grid edge 
  • Power flow analysis available for advanced smart metering solutions
