Pepco Holdings Inc. (PHI) has entered into an enterprise-wide license agreement to deploy a comprehensive grid analytics solution from Landis+Gyr across its service territories. The analytics package includes a suite of applications aimed at enhancing asset life, reliability and distribution system optimization.
PHI’s operating companies, including Pepco, Delmarva Power and Atlantic City Electric, will deploy six different analytics applications for visualization, planning and real-time operational analytics support.
The core objective for PHI’s analytics project is to provide greater analysis, prediction, optimization and decision making capabilities. This includes the management of network assets, load balancing, volt/VAR optimization, outage management and restoration, reliability, outage detection, and improved fault isolation and system restoration.
PHI announced the deployment earlier this year of the GRIDplan Reliability module that is part of the analytics suite developed by GRIDiant, which was acquired in June by Landis+Gyr.
