Electric utilities are adopting Intergraph Smart Grid software solutions to support system efficiency and performance. From Intergraph G/Technology, which provides the additional technical attributes needed to build and support a Smart Grid beyond the capabilities of conventional geographic information system (GIS) platforms, to InService 8.2, which consolidates Smart Grid command-and-control operations, Intergraph integrated software solutions are at work helping electric utilities get the most out of their Smart Grid technology.
Intergraph G/Technology is a fully scalable, standards-based solution for utility infrastructure management that leverages the power of Oracle’s database capabilities. The open solution supports the design and records management for the transmission and distribution assets of a utility, reducing the cost of maintaining records and making it easy to leverage asset data through a variety of applications.
G/Technology can also track load analysis, voltage, phasing, reactance, impedance and many other attributes required for advanced Smart Grid systems. The solution helps improve the productivity of mapping technicians, engineers, field crews and all personnel who need to create, use and maintain accurate network asset information, boosting efficiency and customer service levels.
In addition to providing an asset management platform on which to build next-generation intelligent grids, Intergraph also offers a consolidated Smart Grid command-and-control center that fuses its outage, asset and mobile workforce management technology with distribution management and SCADA functionality from companies such as Siemens Energy, Inc. to maximize grid efficiency. Together, Intergraph solutions provide electric utilities with a robust foundation on which to build and manage next-generation Smart Grids.
