Aclara Offers Grid Monitoring Platform

March 9, 2020
Aclara’s Grid Monitoring platform uses smart grid sensors to detect faults with real-time information.

Utilities today are under pressure to reduce operating losses, extend the life of distribution assets and components, defer capital investments and ultimately ensure that they provide good power quality to their customers. Visit Aclara, a part of Hubbell Utility Solutions, at IEEE PES and discover how integrated advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and distribution automation (DA) solutions help utilities optimize their network operations and best position themselves for the evolving demands of the electric utility industry.

One of these solutions, the Aclara Grid Monitoring platform, provides the situational awareness utilities need to quickly identify and resolve problems while increasing service reliability. Aclara’s Grid Monitoring platform uses smart grid sensors to detect faults with real-time information and continuously monitor power quality across all three phases of their medium voltage distribution network. With this actionable data, utilities can boost the reliability, efficiency and power quality across their distribution system with enhanced situational awareness to:

  • Detect overload and imbalance conditions.
  • Perform real-time load and substation monitoring.
  • Reduce outage duration (e.g. improve SAIDI and CAIDI) and momentary (e.g. improve SAIFI, MAIFI).
  • Improve power quality and customer satisfaction.
  • Maximize asset life and utilization.

Whether it’s providing fault information to more quickly dispatch crews, monitoring load or getting 0.5% accuracy in voltage measurements to optimize efficiency, Aclara is helping utilities solve the real-world challenges and improve the reliability of the distribution grid.
