Itron Grid Connectivity
Achieve a Balanced Grid
Every electric utility can improve accuracy of smart grid applications such as outage restoration, revenue protection, load balancing, system planning, voltage optimization, asset optimization with accurate knowledge of meter-to-phase and transformer connectivity. Itron Grid Connectivity can ensure proper meter-to-phase alignment with patented algorithms that determine the precise connectivity from every meter to its distribution transformer, as well as the feeder phase supplying the power—all by leveraging the interval voltage data from smart meters. Now there’s no need for hardware or field personnel to accurately determine your grid connectivity. Itron Grid Connectivity eliminates the substantial costs and risks of sending personnel into the field to trace the circuit of every meter to its distribution feeder.
With Itron Grid Connectivity, you can:
- Stay current on your meter-to-transformer connectivity model
- Identify changes in the phase of the electrical circuit supplying each meter
- Improve the accuracy of smart grid applications and operations
- Reduce the substantial personnel and hardware costs associated with manual methods of meter phase identification
