What is the electric network modeling solution?

Electric Office is a proven, scalable solution with data quality and integrity enforced to support a fully connected, phase aware, network model that is the solid foundation for your grid modernization and network modeling needs.

 

Benefits of the Electric Office model

 

Electric Office models and manages location and connectivity of electric T&D network assets from generation through consumption and distributed energy resources.

 

  • Distributed generation: Wind and solar farms
  • Substation internals: Circuit breakers, busbars, etc.
  • T&D network modeling: All voltage levels, 3 phase balanced/unbalanced, mesh and radial
  • Distributed energy resources: rooftop solar, electric vehicle charging, battery storage
  • LV network and structures: poles, civils, street lights, energy service points, meters and consumers

Network infrastructure management: Connect your grid

Your network infrastructure is the foundation of your business, and key forces affecting the utility industry require a fully connected grid model, from distributed energy resources (DER) and storage, to local energy, smart meters and micro generation. Competing in the contemporary energy sector means addressing challenges, change, and disruption for the modern utility through advanced GIS utilities asset management.

 

Knowing what is constructed, how it is connected, and where you have DER and distributed generation will become even more important as these modern electric grid technologies proliferate across your network. Having a proven network-based geospatial model will reinforce your ability to address these technology and market challenges as you plan and design the evolution of your utility network.
