Centrix uses a new, advanced approach to Distribution Automation at the feeder level. This innovative approach makes Centrix a powerful Smart Grid automation foundation to support many companion applications. Minsait ACS has taken the functionality and capability of our model–driven advanced DMS applications and developed a stand-alone system that is easier to configure and deploy. The cost of a Centrix installation is comparable to that of a peer–to–peer distributed approach, without requiring vendor-specific hardware.
Because Centrix is a model–based solution, it supports multiple automation applications—including Loss CVR, Interactive Volt/VAR Control and FDIR—without the complexity normally associated with creating the model. Centrix models are easy to build, using pre–defined feeder topology templates.
