Why grid reliability?

Grid reliability, or security of supply, has become increasingly important as our society is becoming more and more dependent on electricity. A reliable supply of electricity is a basic requirement in our modern society; without it nothing would work properly. In many countries, this is and has been a central issue for the DSOs for decades, but the increasing demands on the electrical grid – in the form of more renewable and intermittent energy, the development of prosumers, decentralized energy production and so on – is turning security of supply into a central challenge.

Knowing the weaknesses of the grid and keeping up a proactive maintenance work is key in avoiding outages and securing a reliable distribution. The traditional way of monitoring the grid does not allow proactive measures, as only actual outages are registered, and can be acted on. Digitalization of the grid with dLab’s solution enables collecting and analysing grid data in real time, which can then be used to find impending faults or deviations in quality and take action on these early warnings.


FAQ

What is smart grid analytics?

The power sector is facing major challenges today; among the most pressing are access to reliable and affordable energy and a decentralized production from renewable energy sources. This requires the utilities to move from a traditional, one-way distribution of electricity from producer to consumer, to a modern distribution grid with prosumers and where the customer… Read more »

Why is AI the key driver for smart grid?

The transformation from yesterday’s grid – defined as a one-way energy transmission between producer and consumer – to the grid of the future, where there is a need for a two-way communication of data and energy, requires a whole new set of innovative solutions. Transforming the grid into a vast network of intelligent nodes will… Read more »
