Webinar: Can Feeder Automation Integrate DER in a Distributed Fashion? 3 Real-World Applications + The Contribution of IIoT
The utility grid is changing faster than it has in the past, resulting in what can be summed up by four D’s: Decentralized, Digitalized, Decarbonized, and Democratized. With this paradigm shift, grid operations have to adjust to address these new challenges. Grids will soon have to deal with amounts of non-dispatchable/intermittent generation that are significantly influencing the foresee-ability of loads. Load control must go beyond traditional demand response thus be more dynamic and related to specific local network conditions. Grid operation has to extend the real-time visibility to sections of the networks that are seldom monitor, let alone automated, today. The webinar shows how to leverage IT and OT technology already available and proven in the utilities and other industries, to design cost-effective solutions to distribute automation and to include DER as part of the dynamic operation of the networks.
