Electric Grid ecosystem
Aging infrastructure, increasing performance and reliability requirements and decreasing or stagnating funding, create huge challenges for utilities. With these - and many more - challenges, it is imperative to have reliable (relevant and high quality) data readily available. Electrical utilities have spent decades accumulating data, and the large quantities of data can create challenges. Data being gathered and stored in different legacy systems, and often managed or even duplicated by different departments, is difficult to access, and can lead to errors. Additionally, there are often missed opportunities for more effective actions in sustaining reliability and performance goals of serving the utility customers and meeting regulatory expectations. Whether you are a system operator looking at equipment overload capabilities, a maintenance manager handling an emergency, or an asset manager developing replacement strategies, you are using asset data to make decisions that are critical to the success of your utility.
DNV GL and utilities are striving toward a more sophisticated approach to asset performance management, which involves a combination of data capture, integration, visualization and analytics, all harnessed to improve the reliability and availability of physical assets. DNV GL enables utilities to get the timely information and analysis needed to cost-effectively maximize equipment lifetimes, perform predictive and preventive maintenance, and prioritize maintenance based on the condition and criticality of assets. This facilitates better informed and more timely decision-making across the business, maximizing return on investment.
Utility asset management and predictive maintenance
Cascade preventive maintenance software is the industry-leading enterprise system explicitly designed to help energy companies manage their most critical assets. Cascade provides actionable insigth for maintenance prioritization, alasset criticality, health or risk, and positions utilities to achieve significantly improved asset life and operational excellence.
Facility ratings management and NERC compliance software
LOAD Facility Ratings Management System is the industry's first fully integrated facility ratings management solution. LOAD offers a singel enterprise solution for NERC compliance (North American Electrical Reliability Corporation) and all aspects of calculating, approving and reporting element and facility ratings across your entire organization.
Power distribution system and electrical simulation software
Synergi Electric software models and analyses power distribution systems in a real world spatial environment in full detail from the substation to the customer. Synergi provides power engineers the flexibility to model their systems over a 10-year period down to the second on radial, looped and mesh network systems on multiple voltages and configurations.
