New Siemens distribution management system for smart grids
By Alyssa Dalton
February 3, 2014 – Siemens Smart Grid has introduced a distribution management system specifically developed for enhancing and expanding smarter grids—Spectrum Power ADMS (Advanced Distribution Management System) combines SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), outage management, and fault and network analysis functions on a software platform.
According to Siemens, the system allows network operators to control and monitor their distribution network more reliably, as well as track and restore outages and carry out maintenance and repair work more efficiently. The system also leverages the intelligent use of smart meter data for outage prediction, fault detection and clearance, it adds.
