Nexant Launches GRID360 Distribution Manager
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Inc. announced today that it has launched its GRID360™
Distribution Manager-a new, network modeling and simulation software
application that enables utilities to build, analyze, simulate, and
optimize distribution networks.
The GRID360 Distribution Manager enables utilities to address the
challenge of unpredictable power flow in the power grid due to
distributed generation, renewable integration, micro-grids, and demand
response. The application represents a breakthrough in network modeling
and simulation technology to improve network visibility by identifying
network topology and SCADA measurement errors using advanced state
estimation techniques that deliver the most accurate network model. The
application runs on Nexant's advanced GRID360
platform with industry-proven network
modeling, generalized state estimation and power flow software, and
leveraging open Common Information Model (CIM) standards.
Nexant GRID360 enables power system engineers to build, monitor,
analyze, and perform "what if" scenarios in a collaborative environment.
It is built with a highly sophisticated N-tier open architecture to
easily address security, interoperability, extensibility, and
"To make the grid 'smarter' and capable of addressing the need to
decarbonize generation sources and enable end-user energy efficiency,
utilities will have to improve observability and controllability of
their networks, while transforming them into geodesic structures that
intersperse a variety of distributed energy resources-some owned and
operated by consumers," according to Zarko Sumic, Vice President and
Distinguished Analyst, Gartner (News - Alert), Inc. in his July 2012 report, Hype
Cycle for Smart Grid Technologies.
Nexant will be demonstrating GRID360 Distribution Manager at the
DistribuTECH conference in San Diego, on January 29-31 for utility
distribution operations and planning professionals. To arrange a
demonstration contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nexant offers a comprehensive suite of best-in-class energy enterprise
software designed to transform utility business processes and implement
smart grid and demand management initiatives. Over the last decade, it
has been developing and commercializing technology solutions-such as
iEnergy™, GRID360™, iHEDGE®, and RevenueManager®-enabling utilities,
power producers, and retailers to improve operational and financial
efficiency, reduce risk, and enhance customer engagement across the
energy value chain.
