At this year’s smart grid technical forum SGTech Europe, more than 250 energy professionals will come together to share project experience and technological innovations to support the industry’s drive towards IT, OT & Telecom convergence in delivering the smart grid.  Landis+Gyr’s smart grid experts look forward to presenting the company’s MV/LV monitoring and control solutionsS650 SCADA and S760 Smart Grid Device Integrator. Designed to retrofit and digitalize energy networks in a cost-effective way, these solutions merge existing and new power infrastructure into the SCADA and other operational systems to deliver true distribution intelligence.

Increased network visualization

National 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.

Improved network efficiency

Ageing grid infrastructure as well as increased load and distributed generation make existing distribution systems more vulnerable to technical and non-technical losses. The energy-balancing capabilities of Landis+Gyr’s S650 SCADA solution deliver accurate measurements of electricity supplied and consumed and allow non-technical losses to be easily tracked. Monitoring transformer loads and power quality along with multi-feeder substation supervision helps prevent incidents and maximize the efficiency of utilities’ distribution assets. 

Renewable integration and control

With the growth of renewable power generation, electric utilities will have to tackle additional challenges related to variability and uncertainty of loads. With Landis+Gyr’s S650 SCADA solution, they can build a flexible cross-functional smart grid infrastructure that can be easily extended and upgraded for future demands such as renewable integration. Billing renewable power, power curtailment to achieve system balance and meet network limits, remote supervision and control of generated energy are just a few benefits this solution delivers.
