DEPsys edge-computing sensors and intelligent algorithms automate grid status updating in GIS applications, which was previously done manually by field engineers gathering substation and cabinet information and was prone to error.Grid topology from the GIS is key for correct grid planning, grid simulation, control room and real-time operations.
Analysing electrical signals with AI algorithms via the GridEye platform enables automatic detection of grid topology in the low voltage network.
The measurements are delivered by the GridEye cells, which are made up of a main electronic box with integrated voltage sensors and current measurement devices. Installation usually takes one to four hours, including online configuration, depending on the asset type.
The grid topology detection algorithm is validated and used on LV networks. An extension to MV topology is in test phase, likewise leveraging measurement of the LV side of the secondary substation transformer.
