Utilities worldwide face smart grid challenges that can impact their mission to deliver reliable, safe, and efficient power. A real-time model of the distribution network infrastructure is an essential component of implementing successful smart grid strategies. But creating a reliable model requires complete, correct, and current data. A recent survey indicates that less than 5% of utilities have confidence in the quality of their data.

Implementation of the following best practices can assist in creating a smart grid network model:

  • Adopt a highly focused evaluation of data requirements based on identified business drivers 
  • Commit the resources and time to required improve the quality of GIS and other source data 
  • Prepare the data sources needed for ADMS deployment, using adequate quality control and error correction of source data 
  • Implement the business processes and change management necessary to create and validate the ADMS model, including user roles and training programs 
  • Dedicate resources required to update and maintain the model
