D5: Power System Automatically Reconfigures for Reliability with the Help of the SmartConnect System

The SmartConnect advanced metering system will extend the utility' s sensing capabilities and communication infrastructure further down the distribution system while enabling a host of grid network optimization applications and services. This use case describes several scenarios in which the distribution network automatically reconfigures using a combination of distribution automation devices and SmartConnect system functions, either by making use of data provided by the SmartConnect meters or by providing better coordinated actions through the SmartConnect communications network itself. Moving intelligence out onto a grid enabled with SmartConnect communications, the utility can provide more predictive and targeted response actions to optimize performance and mitigate system abnormalities resulting in enhanced reliability and power quality for customers.
