Managing the distribution network of the Smart Grid era
Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™ ADMS (formerly known as Advanced Distribution Management System) provides the most comprehensive network management solution, including monitoring, analysis, control, optimization, planning, and training tools that all function on a common representation of the entire electric distribution network. By merging distribution management (DMS), outage management (OMS), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems into one secure, unified solution with more than 50 advanced functions, it can maximize the benefits possible from a growing foundation of intelligent grid devices, distributed renewable energy, advanced metering, and all things smart grid.
Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure™ ADMS offers many key benefits such as:
Self-healing automation – Closed-loop control for advanced functions such as Volt/VAR Optimization (VVO) and Fault Location, Isolation, and Service Restoration (FLISR).
Distributed Energy – Supports renewable energy – the highly variable generation that is being distributed potentially anywhere along distribution feeders.
Distribution SCADA – Combines the industry's most feature-rich distribution management system with the operational benefits of an incorporated, field-proven distribution SCADA system.
Beyond the Control Room – Mission critical applications contain advanced analysis tools that traditionally have been restricted to the control room.
Real-Time Weather - Web services-based integration of real-time weather data vital in forecasting and managing network load.
