The fully integrated system dramatically improves the ease of managing large-scale smart-grid deployments for electrical utilities. Scalability and effective data management are critical to the practicality of smart-grid installments.
"As smart-grid deployments increase in scale and complexity, tighter integration of data on system assets and system device configurations is essential to provide a complete system supporting both distributed intelligence and centralized control," says Mike Edmonds, S&C's Global Smart Grid Strategies Director. "With the integration of GeoMedia, IntelliTEAM SG now can access and employ the most up-to-date asset data while minimizing database maintenance. This makes large-scale deployments of self-healing technology more economical."
"Strategic alliances between leading solutions like S&C's IntelliTEAM SG and Intergraph's GeoMedia enable utilities to get the best use of the assets they're using to build a truly smart grid," says Intergraph's Hank Dipietro, Vice President.
How it works
S&C's IntelliTEAM SG™ Automatic Restoration System provides automatic fault isolation and service restoration to utility distribution systems, allowing power to be restored in seconds. Using distributed intelligence and peer-to-peer networking technology, IntelliTEAM SG™ accomplishes restoration faster than any other software.
