AMI & DA Convergence

AMI and DA Convergence: Benefits of Growing Your Smart Grid Infrastructure with a Multi Technology Approach

As today’s utilities explore new ways to operate more efficiently, the smart grid offers a solution through distributed intelligence, managing energy consumption and measuring the quality of the power back to the utility. This information helps utilities save energy, reduce costs and increase the grid’s reliability and also provides greater transparency to those operating it. Although smart grid investments span a broad range of technologies, today’s utilities are focusing on distribution automation (DA) systems and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to support monitoring and remote control of the power system.
