ADVANCED DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS: THE FUTURE OF THE ENERGY GRID

Every day, management of the electric grid is becoming more complex with increasing amounts of distributed generation (DG) and distributed energy resources (DERs) at all voltage levels. However, the need to manage the safety, reliability, and security of supply remains a priority. Automation and adaptive software algorithms are required to protect and transform the performance of the grid—accelerating the distribution network operators’ journey to network-level optimization.

GE’s Advanced Distribution Management Solutions (ADMS) provide software for the management and orchestration of the distribution grid. Our solutions deliver reliability, productivity, and efficiency through a modular architecture with adaptive algorithms, predictive analytics, and a brilliant user experience. Our ADMS software is accelerating a maturity model for customers around the world towards predictive and autonomous solutions, and an optimized distribution grid.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND THE OPTIMIZATION OF DISTRIBUTION GRID OPERATIONS

In the increasingly dynamic and evolving world of the electric utility, distribution grid operators are facing rising uncertainty due to changing business and regulatory models coupled with an ongoing increase in grid complexity. This complexity has allowed software solutions to take advantage of more operational levers, equipment functionality, general data, and telemetry. With converging OT and IT, utilities need an ADMS software solution offering greater visibility and control to the utility—one that will connect and orchestrate, delivering network-level optimization.

GE has the proven and solid foundation-enabling utilities to solve these challenges with scalable and high-performing distribution power applications that have gone well beyond the pilot stage and are in production worldwide. In addition, where many legacy systems are challenged to integrate distributed energy resources (DERs), GE can deliver a solution today that turns the threat of DER into an opportunity.

HARNESSING THE POTENTIAL OF DISTRIBUTED ENERGY RESOURCES (DERs)
Increasing levels of DERs are impacting electric utilities’ safe and efficient delivery of electricity. Operations are challenged to effectively utilize both utility-owned and third-party DERs due to limited visibility. Effective management of DERs requires modeling and awareness of physical characteristics and locations throughout a broad range of applications, spanning planning and operational domains.
GE’s DER Orchestration solutions enable utilities to manage and orchestrate DERs in an end-to-end manner, from planning through to control, via a range of flexible deployment options from on-prem to cloud. GE’s software provides operators with the requisite tools and situational intelligence to recognize developing situations and act quickly and decisively, orchestrating flexibility across the grid for both utility and non-utility DERs, while unlocking new revenue streams.

MAXIMIZE GRID RELIABILITY AND MINIMIZE NETWORK DOWNTIME
During weather events, electric utilities must quickly understand the extent and location of damage to network assets that may result in complex and nested outages. Specifically, utilities need the ability to assess the impact on the network, prepare repair actions, determine resource needs, dispatch repair crews, and communicate key damage and restoration information both internally and externally.
GE’s Outage Response is an end-to-end outage management solution (OMS) that provides electric utilities with the integrated tools needed to assess, dispatch, report, and restore power from outages caused by moderate and severe weather events, as well as everyday operations. GE’s solution reduces costs by enabling more efficient outage response and order dispatch management, especially during high-volume storm conditions.
