White Paper - Best Practices for Creating Your Smart Grid Network Model

Version 2

    A real-time model of their distribution network enables utilities to implement Smart Grid strategies such as managing demand and integrating renewable energy sources. They build this model in an Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) based on accurate and up-to-date information of the distribution network infrastructure. Yet, a recent survey shows that less than 5% of utilities are confident about the quality of the network data. This paper discusses best practices for ensuring complete, correct, and current data for a Smart Grid network model.
