New technology requires grids to be highly reliable, and the transition to renewable forms of energy puts pressure on the system as well. Therefore, we need to make clever grid investments – now. dLab will help you get a smart grid that is digitalised, efficient and reliable – with one solution.
Data-driven management, automatization and security of supply. These are some of the main issues DSOs need to consider regarding future smart grid investments. Data-driven management is in fact a new way of working, using data analysis for operational and strategical decision-making. Advanced data analysis can monitor the flow and defects of a grid in real-time, allowing for greater automation of troubleshooting and predictive functions. Also, it may make proactive operations and maintenance possible, increasing grid reliability.
dLab’s dInsight analytics platform provides a decision support system including a broad set of features and services. The platform enables DSOs to take small incremental and measurable steps towards a more effective, robust, and reliable grid through a deeper understanding and a more data-driven organization.
The platform allows for a step-by-step process:
- connect and collect grid data
- analyse to unlock critical information
- categorise and visualise
- set the information in meaningful context and transform into actionable knowledge.
These are crucial steps for the adoption of a true data-driven behaviour. The achieved understanding facilitates an informed and fact-based decisions-making process that can be incorporated into operations and maintenance, in turn leading to clear business values.
