Proposal looking for partners:
Development of end-to-end Smart Grid Pilot Zone
To apply Intelligent Network and communications Technologies to substation sites:
• 1 – to improve equipment condition assessment, increase existing equipment loadability, and defer investments in network capacity.
• 2 – Improved system operations in the presence of increasing renewable generation
• 3 - Reduce the risk of large customer outages due to overloading, and defer potential investment.
• 4 – to allow better control of automated systems, improve visibility of system operating conditions.
