The boom in advanced technologies behind the meter, as well as the burgeoning variety of distributed energy resources (DERs) connected around the grid, is driving the need for grid-edge intelligence.
Even though utilities need more intelligence at the grid edge, the process of selecting the right combination of tools to do this job can be hindered by misconceptions about grid-edge intelligence. However, it is possible to dispel these myths and develop solutions that are precisely tailored to a utility’s unique circumstances and resources by thinking holistically and creatively about the capabilities of the entire advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), not only about smart meters.
In this e-Book, you will learn
- The key differences between centralized and decentralized architecture;
- The ideal place for data processing to happen; and
- How advanced applications like phase identification, theft detection and distribution automation are better suited for one particular AMI architecture.
+ and we’ll unveil the four myths of grid edge intelligence.
