Landis+Gyr and Utilidata join forces to transform grid operations

US: Landis+Gyr is joining forces with Utilidata to provide grid management through the deployment of edge applications on Landis+Gyr advanced meters, planned initially for the North American market.

Embedded software will enable utilities to gather, analyze, and synthesize data from a multitude of grid endpoints. Landis+Gyr’s  AMI solution is built on Gridstream® Connect, an IoT platform designed specifically for utilities, which enables edge applications to fully utilize the sensing and analysis capabilities of advanced meters. This platform is strengthened by the energy optimization software of Utilidata’s applications that will leverage real-time data and machine learning to enable:

Grid visualization using waveform analysis to provide real-time visibility into the distribution system, including power flow and locational awareness

Dynamic monitoring of distribution circuits utilizing peer-to-peer communication and edge processing to create a critical framework for both voltage optimization (VVO) and seamless integration of DERs

Real-time fault detection combines edge-based waveform and system distribution analytics to identify and prioritize anomalies for improved grid reliability and faster response to safety issues

Utilidata’s applications join additional technologies that are optimized by the Landis+Gyr metering platform, including energy management powered by Sense, a partner of both Landis+Gyr and Utilidata. Combining these technologies will illuminate both consumer behavior and grid operations, leveraging innovative grid-edge hardware to create a complete, holistic picture of electric distribution and demand.
