Take the next step in the smart grid evolution
OMNIGRID provides insight into the low-voltage grid by monitoring secondary substations and thus expanding the utility’s network of sensors to include all parts of the low-voltage grid.
This will provide better monitoring capabilities and enable utilities to operate more efficiently, make intelligent investments and reduce maintenance costs. Add to that an improved level of fault detection due to more detailed grid data. By means of both push alarms and early indications of changes in load patterns via extensive reporting, OMNIGRID will help utilities to accurate fault detection.
Via a module in an OMNIPOWER® CT meter, OMNIGRID collects, logs and analyses data from various sources and makes it available for analysis and reporting. A wide variety of sensors can be added to gather even more information from the substation (e.g. temperature or door alarms). It is also possible to connect a multi-instrument (power meter) for measuring certain power quality parameters. This provides utilities with information about production, consumption and voltage variations and allow them to proactively inform consumers about irregularities. The logged data also serves as documentation for delivery according to norm.
Reusing the existing OMNIA® infrastructure, head-end system and MDM system for communication, data models and security, OMNIGRID is a low-cost solution for substation monitoring. Remote firmware uploads ensure that OMNIGRID is always up-to-date.
