Increased network visualizationNational regulation mandates distribution system operators (DSO) to continuously optimize customer outages by reducing system average interruption duration index (SAIDI) and keeping the frequency rate (system average interruption frequency index (SAIFI)) under control. With the help of accurate fault detection, location and restoration capabilities offered by Landis+Gyr monitoring and control solutions, utilities are able to adhere to statutory limits and comply with technical standards while enhancing the overall reliability of energy supply. Landis+Gyr’s S760 Smart Grid Device Integrator monitors power quality at strategic points of the network and instantly identifies problems causing electricity limit violations and outages. Improved grid insights can significantly enhance network performance and planning, which leads to better grid investment decisions for network expansion or retrofit and connection management.
Fully automated distribution system
The distribution automation capabilities of Landis+Gyr’s S760 solution deliver distinct benefits of network restoration as a response to network faults. Features include remote control of switches, automatic voltage regulation and demand-side management, which overall in combination with advanced sensor technology and a multi-communication platform help build a fully controllable and flexible grid infrastructure.
