The Full Distribution Automation Experience Is Here

Automating and controlling the flow of energy on the distribution grid is becoming increasingly complicated as more and more devices are connected to it. At DTECH, we will help you understand the optimal implementation of sensors, VVO, and synchrophasors—explaining how these technologies will help give utilities situational awareness of the grid. We’ll also take a look at some of the workforce challenges to automation deployment—covering topics such as FLISR, state estimation and distribution power flow.
