Every year there are dozens of conferences dedicated to electrical transmission and distribution.
Analytics and real-time data play a prominent role in today's utility grid, each opening opportunities for both large investor owned utilities as well as smaller municipal and co-op utilities to better operate their networks.
Dr. R. O. Mueller, Dr. D. Yenigun, J. Singer
Mine-Weather is an analytical database and visualization system designed to allow companies to probe the accuracy of the weather forecasts they use to plan their activities and preparedness in the case of storm conditions.

Today's power grids can't run without reliable, resilient, flexible, and secure telecommunications (or telecoms) networks. The intelligent devices that monitor and control the flow of electricity on high- and low-voltage grids require real- and near-real-time data transport capabilities.
Stefan Meier and Steven Kunsman
Gone are the days of the simple electro-mechanical relay without firmware and communication interfaces. The fact exists that protection and control systems have changed significantly in the past decade and will continue to change with technology advancements.
Electric utilities recognize the need for new distribution network technologies to accommodate customers' growing interest in grid-connected, consumer-owned energy technologies such as solar rooftops, home/building energy management systems, and smart appliances.
Plugging the Industrial Internet into Your OT Architecture: 3 Steps to Leveraging the IIoT in Your Smart Grid
Operational Technology innovation embodied in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is proliferating at a rapid pace.
Electricity, always taking the path of least resistance, is efficiency in its simplest form. East Central Energy, as with many electric cooperatives, strives for the efficiency of the very product they provide.
In today's world, data of all types are used to drive decisions within organizations. Those who ask the right questions, and have the right data to provide answers, often find themselves with a significant advantage over the competition.
We have all heard about the impending Internet of Things (IoT) revolution. As a matter of fact, such talk has been going on for many years.
Dr. Tim Shaw
Industrial cyber security is challanging for a number of reasons, one being the range of “smart” devices that we commonly use for monitoring, analysis, protection and control.
When asked the question "what is IEC 61850?" most people would respond "an automating protocol". Although this is part of the answer, a better answer would be "a comprehensive way to look at all aspects of an automation system".
While Zac's statement drew more than a few chuckles among us here at DataCapable, he had a point: we've reached a time when technologies such as Toaster-to-Utility communications have moved from the realm of 'possible' to 'inevitable.'
Besides the obvious safety implications of having adequate vegetation clearance from power lines, power companies often face heavy regulatory pressure to ensure they maintain compliance for these clearance mandates.
Keeping Animals Out, Keeping the Lights On
Electric utilities wage war against the growing trend of animal-caused outages
Every year, property owners look to the skies in anticipation of the next summer storm or winter blizzard that might result in a potential power outage. The reality is, the next power outage is likely to come from something much closer to the ground.
