Smart Grid Services - Distribution System Analysis

Economic and environmental concerns are driving government agencies and distribution utility executives to support the integration of Smart Grid technologies including distribution automation, distributed generation, electric vehicles, energy storage and MicroGrids. The impact of the resulting governmental policies and new technologies can have far reaching implications on all aspects of the electric power system from equipment ratings, to protection and control schemes, tariff structures and business processes. Understanding these new technologies and demand response schemes, how they may be deployed and the scenarios under which they may be deployed requires a deliberate and methodology-driven approach with the insight, experience and tools to ensure optimal business decisions.
