Telvent's Meter Data Management (MDM) System Maximizes Smart Grid Investment Values

As an integral part of Telvent's Smart Grid complete electric solution, the new MDM system integrates reading data throughout the company to optimize operations

February 26, 2010 — Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, announced today the launch of its new MDM System. As utilities seek to maximize their investment and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), Telvent Conductor MDM™ will allow the processing and assimilation of mass amounts of data from multiple AMI networks, turning this data into business information that can be made available to the entire company.

Telvent Conductor MDM meets both high level business requirements and operative needs. Electric companies will now be able to have at their disposal a unique system that integrates the entire scope of the AMI metering information and au tom ates business processes in real time.

Developed on a flexible architecture, the solution is scalable so that utilities can interconnect multiple AMI networks and jointly manage millions of data items to reduce complexity and operative costs. It allows for the adequate and reliable coordination of the client's information systems and greater agility and precision in the invoicing meter-to-cash process, cash flow, and cus tom er service.

Using the business intelligence generated by Telvent Conductor MDM, business managers also will be able to develop innovative designs, including cus tom ized fees, Time of Use (TOU), and other time-dependent structures. This opens the door to new business models for the utility, facilitating pre-payment, active demand response, and possible price bidding.

The system is based on the PI platform from OSIsoft®, an industry leader, which powers the acquisition, storage and recovery of data in real time on a large scale. Through this centralized flow of information, Telvent Conductor MDM reduces complexity and operative costs while offering unequaled data management performance, scalability and reliability. Conductor MDM uses highly secure technologies, including advanced federated security architecture, claims-based user roles, and multiple levels of encryption and authentication to best secure the data and access it.

As the first MDM available at the commercial level with base ESRI integration, the Telvent Conductor MDM system integrates with the power of the ArcFM Server GIS solution to display and understand the installation information, providing operative support to requirements such as detecting power interruptions and verifying recovery, as well as displaying the AMI systems. Conductor MDM also can be integrated with Telvent Distribution Management System (DMS) to provide better load forecasting, by providing better, more accurate load curves, by providing real-time information about outage situations, and by providing a direct feedback loop for demand-response and load shaving operations.

“Telvent has successfully implemented AMI projects for some of the top world class electrical distributors, which translates into broad practical experience," points out Manuel Sanchez, Telvent president. "Now, utilities will be fully able to analyze and use the metering data to optimize network performance and achieve a smart grid in a way that was not available before.”
