Substation and power distribution

We provide digitally-enabled as well as eco-efficient (EconiQ™) distribution transformers, and power distribution systems for a highly reliable, efficient substation and full control of the grid from anywhere. This is enabled by new data-gathering hardware and smart, automated control systems that allow distribution leaders to make their operations more efficient.

Battery energy storage systems and e-mesh™

We help you transition to the new distributed energy model through a portfolio that offers end-to-end microgrid solutions, combining advanced analytics, software technology, and hardware systems. From the field to the boardroom, we enable and boost our customers to accelerate your sustainability and economical performance to stay ahead of the curve.

Grid-eXpand™

Our range of modular and prefabricated grid connection solutions is scalable and enables easy upgrade or expansion. We make it faster, simpler and more efficient to expand power grid capacity and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable energy system.

Systems and software

Comprehensive software to cover everything from asset and work management (Lumada APM, Vegetation Manager) to advanced distribution management (Network Manager ADMS) and distributed energy resource management. We make it easy to cut asset downtime, manage maintenance more efficiently, balance the grid as you integrate renewables, and monitor and control distribution more efficiently.

Power Consulting Services

Operating as an independent system-agnostic organization, with knowledge of technologies, standards, and local grid codes worldwide, we help you address issues of network strategy, planning, operations, capacity, efficiency, stability, security, reliability, and resiliency. After identifying key challenges, we recommend tailored solutions specific to your needs.

EnCompass™ Agreements

Our customizable frameworks pave the way for sustainable and reliant end-to-end support, covering products, systems, and accessing specialized services tailored to your needs. Our customizable agreements – including risk monitoring, maintenance planning, and execution service – ensure you safeguard investments while meeting unique energy system performance requirements, now and in the future.

Lifecycle Services

We provide upgrades, updates and retrofits spanning the entire life of your grid assets, from installation to decommissioning. Use expert insights on existing assets for advice on best practices and investment plan assessments to improve outlook of returns, and help you improve operational sustainability by ensuring reliability of the electrical grid and its elements.

Power Quality

We provide a complete portfolio of static and dynamic solutions, including reactors, filters, capacitor banks, STATCOM, and synchronous condensers. We’ve spent decades pioneering better substation solutions and improving standard practices to ensure you can deliver reliable, affordable power – even under the most demanding conditions.

Monday 26 February
8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. | Location: W204A
A Primer on Energy Transition to Net Zero – the Opportunity and challenges
The utility industry value chain is undergoing a major transformation. Driven by regulatory, policy, business, technology and the consumer/prosumer, change is being wrought in all aspects of the value chain. This course will be a primer on the Energy Transition to Net Zero and discuss the applications for United States around key aspects like the edge/ IoT, analytics, DER/ renewables and the prosumer.
Anant Venkateswaran
Regional Leader
8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. | Location: W207B
Cybersecurity of the Electric Power Distribution System
This course describes cybersecurity terms and definitions as well as the risks cyber vulnerabilities pose to electric power distribution systems. The course also reviews available industry technical standards, best practices, and guides. Cybersecurity implementation examples in power systems are also described. The purpose of this course is to provide a greater understanding of the cyber vulnerabilities of electric power distribution systems and present the technical standards and solutions that are available today to help mitigate the risk posed by cyberattacks.
