Distribution Automation: Advanced Communications for Network Management

Wednesday, September 21, 2011, 8:00am - 10:30am PDT / Streamed Panel Discussion: 8:30am - 10:00am PDT / 11:30am - 1:00pm EDT / 17:30 - 19:00 (Paris-Frankfurt)

Meeting in San Francisco

Distribution automation promises to deliver widespread benefits of improved reliability, fault detection, and optimized grid efficiency. And indeed the market for DA is poised for growth, with revenues forecasted to increase from $2.7 billion in 2010 to $10.4 billion by 2014, according to Pike Research.

 

In transforming and automating the electric distribution system, advanced communication networks and AMI networks help dynamically control and optimize grid-level efficiencies. These networks also deliver significant volumes of new data that can help utilities improve grid reliability and power “uptime” statistics such as CAIDI; assist in analysis of AMI network performance issues; and manage a proliferation of devices that can communicate in the Smart Grid.

 

In this onsite meeting, industry experts discuss the solutions available for distribution automation and the opportunities for data analytics and business intelligence to help utilities manage AMI and advanced communications infrastructure.

  • What are the business justifications for implementing data analytics solutions for AMI and communications networks?
  • Identify challenges for utility power and communication networks to be effectively managed.
  • Understanding the technologies and options for automated distribution communication (i.e. peer-to-peer versus centralized).
  • What opportunities exist for data management and analytics to improve reliability and support interoperable communication networks?
