Distribution Automation Controllers Enable Utilities to Optimize Voltage Levels, Reduce Power Losses and Outage Duration

GE Energy has released its new platform of Multilin Distribution Automation Controllers; Voltage Regulator Controller, Capacitor Bank Controller and Field RTU, key building blocks of GE’s advanced distribution automation solutions.

When deployed as part of a voltage and VAR control solution that includes voltage regulators and capacitor banks, GE’s DA Controllers provide utilities with the advanced technologies to optimize grid efficiency through peak load shaving and reduced power losses. They also provide asset visualization through advanced power quality measurements.

GE’s DA Controllers provide detection of power system outages reducing typical outage time from hours to minutes. This capability helps drive increased power system reliability, customer satisfaction and provides significant improvement to a utility’s performance indices.
