- Effective management of peak demand on through analysis of usage per consumer, forecasting and optimisation of power
- Will also help maintenance staff in monitoring power situation via mobile devices and faster complaint management
- Innovative program fuels grid interoperability, enhances reliability and resiliency
Further strengthening its commitment to provide 24×7 reliable power supply, Tata Power Delhi Distribution (Tata Power-DDL), the pioneer in power distribution in India has launched first-of-its-kind Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS). The newly launched ADMS will aid Tata Power-DDL to enhance the reliability, safety and efficiency of the network spread across 510 sq. km in North and North-West Delhi by facilitating advanced monitoring, analytics, and better control and planning. Tata Power-DDL has enabled the system in collaboration with GE T&D.
ADMS encompasses advanced monitoring and control of the distribution network, fault and outage management and network performance optimization on a single platform integrating SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition), DMS (Distribution Management System) and OMS (Outage Management System). The integration helps provide efficient network management improving work efficiency and providing faster solutions and better resource optimisation. In terms of contingencies, the system will provide assistance to the maintenance staff for back feeding any affected area through other sources of power supply, providing early restoration of power supply while also predicting and providing time of restoration to the consumers. The system will also help maintenance staff to monitor power situation via mobile devices in real time. The system will also facilitate intimation to affected customers in advance for duration of non-availability of power.
The system will seamlessly integrate sub transmission and distribution management system and customer Management System by using geographical information to further improve outage restoration time. It will also act as an integrator between all Information and operation technology systems and will use predictive analytics for finding exact location of fault and will suggest best way of restoration by network alteration from control centre.
On the roll out of ADMS, Mr. Sanjay Banga, CEO, Tata Power-DDL said “ We aim to create a utility of the future delivering smarter and sustainable power distribution solutions by leveraging integration of different technologies. The new ADMS in collaboration with GE will enable us to further improve on our service and help us in reaching our objective of supplying world class quality power to our consumers. This ADMS with seamless integration of IT/OT will aid us in becoming a future ready Utility.”
“Our partnership with Tata Power-DDL is a key initiative in their consistent pursuit of providing best-in-class services to the people of Delhi. With the addition of ADMS technology, Tata Power-DDL will further strengthen Delhi’s distribution system in terms of network reliability and efficiency”, said Mr. Sunil Wadhwa, Regional Leader for GE Power – Grid Solutions, South Asia and Managing Director, GE T&D India Limited.
The ADMS will also help Tata Power-DDL towards the implementation of other Smart Grid technologies like smart metering , E-Vehicle charging infrastructure, Battery Storage Solutions and Integration of Rooftop Solar by monitoring the load patterns and accurately forecasting availability of power supply.
