Landis+Gyr and Toshiba are looking forward to their participation in this year’s European Utility Week in Amsterdam. The two companies have strengthened their position as the leading one-stop-shop provider of innovative solutions for the environmentally advanced Smart Communities of the future. Smart metering and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) are the stepping stones to a fully smart grid.
With the acquisition of PowerSense, a manufacturer of high-quality supervision and control systems for the power distribution industry, Landis+Gyr has strengthened its smart grid offering. Customers stand to benefit from a cost effective, scalable and modular technology which has already proven itself in a large rollout and perfectly complements Landis+Gyr’s core portfolio.
Landis+Gyr engaged with Spain-based independent Smart Grid research and validation center TECNALIA to test the company’s new Smart Grid solution under real-life conditions in a smart grid demo environment.
The study’s main objective was to demonstrate how existing innovative Automated Network Management (ANM) solutions, such as µEMS/Smart Grid Terminal S650, enable utilities to improve voltage quality, manage decentralized generation and balance energy demand and supply within the network under the most strained conditions.
In October 2013, Landis+Gyr and Toshiba introduced the second generation Micro Energy Management System (μEMS), a smart grid solution enabling T&D utilities to optimize the operations of assets on both medium voltage (MV) and low voltage(LV) networks.
