Monitoring of the
low voltage grid

OMNIGRID

Take the next step in the smart grid evolution

Enhance your asset management with a solution designed to grow with your needs

Imagine what it will mean to say goodbye to relying on conservative estimates and worst-case scenarios to reduce the risk of overloads and outages. With OMNIGRID, utilities will not only have metering points or sensors in households but also along the grid in the secondary substations. This will provide better monitoring capabilities and enable utilities to get the data they need from their grid to operate more efficiently, make intelligent investments and reduce maintenance costs.

Does your neighbour drive a Tesla too? 
The increasingly fluctuating power production and consumption pose a challenge to an ageing infrastructure. As production becomes even more decentralized and renewables-based and the increasing amount of electrical vehicles and heat pumps continue to boost consumption spikes, the need to be able to handle fluctuations intelligently will only grow.

Goodbye guestimates, hello data-driven predictions

Detailed knowledge about load patterns is the key to more accurate dimensioning of specific grid areas and allows for making informed decisions about when to change or upgrade existing transformers and cables. OMNIGRID will let utilities base their capacity planning on data-driven predictions and change the way preventive maintenance is carried out. With data from substations utilities will be able to see how their grid is performing and make adjustments if, for example, a substation is overloaded or not used to its full capacity.

Add to that an improved level of fault detection. Without detailed grid data, it is nearly impossible to locate problems and determine what caused them. 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. Advanced analysis will provide an understanding of the events leading up to e.g. an earth fault or a period of poor power quality.

Meet your customers’ expectations 

Overloads and outages can damage electronic equipment and cause annoyances to both businesses and households. By allowing for quick and accurate fault detection and prevention, OMNIGRID is a key enabler for a smart grid that delivers an uninterrupted high-quality power supply to your customers. 

Power quality data from secondary substations provide 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.

A low-cost, modular solution that can grow with your needs

Via a module in an OMNIPOWER CT meter, OMNIGRID collects data from different sources and makes it available for analysis and reporting. If the need arises, 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. The possibility for remote firmware uploads ensures that OMNIGRID is always up-to-date.

OMNIGRID is part of the OMNIA smart grid platform. That means a wide range of benefits for you:

  • Data from household meters and substations displayed in one place 
  • End-to-end data security
  • Reduced investments in communication infrastructure - OMNIGRID can use the existing RF mesh network or alternatively point-to-point GPRS
  • Always support for new functionality due to synchronized development across the entire system
  • Data from household meters and substations carry the same time stamp and can be correlated for advanced analysis
