Distributed Energy Resources are a game-changer for electric utilities. The challenge has been how to capture real-time data from thousands of assets in order to calculate loss factors by location on the system. T&D World recently discussed how PowerRunner helped one utility find a solution. Read the full article here.
As more and more behind-the-meter DERs, such as renewable generation, electric vehicles, energy storage and load control devices, are deployed, the more critical it will be to model every asset on the system. Read the full article in Electric Energy Online.
In a recent Engerati interview, Dan Garvey discusses PowerRunner's partnership with OSISoft. The goal of the partnership is to support utilities’ operational decision management with near real-time access to critical downstream operational data. Read the full article here.
The Department of Energy estimates that more than 60 percent of the source energy used to generate electricity is lost before it is consumed in our homes. Distribution system losses alone account for over $19 billion in the U.S. annually, in real physical losses and Unaccounted for Energy (UFE), the costs of which are [...]
Leveraging recent investments in AMI, Ameren Illinois began aggregating hourly service point forecast data by voltage (loss) class vs. the hourly system forecast to determine the loss factors per voltage class for every hour of the day. Not only does this innovative approach reduce the time it takes to perform a loss study from [...]
PowerRunner’s ability to perform spatial and temporal load and generation analysis and modeling supports the evolving 21st Century grid. Read full article - Electric Light & Power
PowerRunner’s ability to create unique models for every distribution system asset provides utilities with the visibility to manage real time grid operations and much more. Read Press Release
As DER continue to grow, Utilities are going to need more granular analysis on the value of those assets and the cost to deliver power to customers from every individual delivery point on the grid. This will require the convergence of commercial IT data with Utility OT data. At many utilities, that OT [...]
The proliferation of DERs and the emerging “prosumer” are rapidly changing the way electricity is generated, distributed and consumed. This transformational shift in physical power delivery is beginning to turn the utility business model of the past century on its head. For investor-owned utilities (IOUs), the historical, and, for the most part, successful [...]
