In addition to making sure the grid is always balanced and facilitating energy exchanges, you've got to take into account important factors such as cost management, transmission and distribution capacities, and load fluctuations, especially now that energy sources are increasingly intermittent and hard to plan for.
When you introduce changes to the grid—such as to integrate intermittent renewable energy or new storage technologies—it's important to have clear and effective interconnection strategies and regulations. To obtain accurate models, you need electrical grid studies based on reliable data verified in the field and measured using state-of-the-art equipment.
Supporting new developments and decarbonization efforts in the energy market
The shift toward decentralized energy production—made possible by renewables and intelligent transmission networks—is resulting in a new set of challenges. Managing energy exchanges between systems, regions and jurisdictions is now more complex and the transformation of the energy market is also leading to constant changes in standards and best practices.
You need an integrated and holistic understanding of new technologies if you want to accelerate decarbonization and make sure your facilities are flexible enough to meet your customers' current and future needs. Optimizing your SCADA and telecommunication systems are essential for ensuring control centre efficiency.
