Project Summary:

Memphis Light, Gas, and Water Division’s (Memphis’s) project to implement smart grid technology in a network electric distribution system includes new intelligent relays and sensor equipment to provide remote switching at the transformer level and vital information to aid in the design, operation, and preventive maintenance of this complex electric system. A communications system is being deployed which facilitates the flow of real-time data from intelligent electronic devices and sensors installed in the field with the Memphis’s control systems. Memphis expects these upgrades to reduce restoration times and the need for truck rolls for grid maintenance, improving reliability and reducing operating costs and pollutant emissions.
