Gain Valuable Insight into Customers Contributing Significant Loads During Critical Peak Periods
Landis+Gyr’s Advanced Grid Analytics Capacity Contribution Application allows utilities to use interval meter data to identify, locate and rank customers with high loads during system peaks. In an effort to reduce network peak loads, these customers may then be targeted for demand response or energy efficiency initiatives, as well as strategic placement of distributed energy resources.
Using interval meter data, the Capacity Contribution Application ranks premise meters based on contribution to system capacity during peak periods such as yearly, monthly, weekly and daily. Once top contributing meters are identified, they are presented to the user in a variety of views for easy, individually ranked customer identification.
The browser-based, dynamic user interface employs interactive geospatial, tabular and graphic formats while offering exportable reports, full integration of Google MapsTM mapping service and a network model overlay. The database and analytical capabilities allow interactive, color-coded, geographic display of all top contributing meters by location. The fully interactive, drill-down functionality provides detailed duration curve and load profile for individual meters.
Utilities can use the Capacity Contribution Application to implement programs that help save demand charges and other related peak generation expenses. When coupled with Landis+Gyr’s direct load control solution, the utility will now have an end-to-end solution for planning, placement, management and control of demand response programs.
The grid analytics solution consists of a powerful enterprise platform and modular, web-based, user-friendly applications. The platform enables utilities to leverage data integration, visualization and advanced algorithms for multiple analyses and benefits. Given the modular nature of the applications, as needs change or grow, the same platform and data can be utilized, leveraging economies of scale and eliminating data silos and the need to manage multiple vendor systems.
Landis+Gyr’s professional services team offers a unique combination of power system engineers, subject matter experts, software and technology architects and integration specialists. By leveraging Landis+Gyr’s proven and best in class implementation methodology and standard-based adapters, utilities can start realizing benefits quickly.
Landis+Gyr provides various deployment options that are cost-effective, robust, scalable and meet service levels now and in the future. The solution can either be deployed at the utility’s data-center or hosted at Landis+Gyr’s cloud-based, secure and SSAE-16 compliant Network Operations Center.
