Improve your planning and grid operations through complete energy and economic analysis, forecasting, and visualization of all grid influencers:

Demand response, solar and wind, energy storage, electric vehicles, microgrids, and VVO - including smart inverters

Today’s dynamic grid requires an equally dynamic approach to planning and operations. Nexant Grid360 Distribution Analytics (DA) is a rapidly deployable, web-based visualization, simulation, forecasting, and analytics platform designed to help large, medium, and small utilities manage the increasingly complex changes occurring at the grid edge. Grid360 DA provides system planners and operators with the ability to model the energy and economic impacts of all grid influencers - including demand response and energy efficiency programs, solar and wind generation, energy storage, electric vehicles, and microgrids in combination with Volt/VAR optimization programs - plan for and mitigate peak loading conditions, alert on and prevent predicted problems with voltage, loading, and unbalance, improve underlying network data quality, and improve situational awareness and system reliability.

Grid360 DA provides advanced applications for analytics and visualization: 

  • Power Flow, State Estimation: determine the current operating state of your distribution grid using AMI and/or SCADA data, and discover and eliminate data/topology errors
  • Analysis of DR, DG, DER, EV, Microgrids: evaluate the current and near-term energy and economic state of distribution grids including demand response (DR), distributed generation (DG - solar and wind), distributed energy resources (DER - energy storage), electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, microgrids, and Volt/VAR optimization (VVO) programs
  • Load Profiling, Short-Term, and Long-Term Load and DER Forecasting: create load profiles, develop short-term (days ahead) and long-term (months to years ahead) forecasts including DR, DG, DER, EV, and microgrids
  • Management of Independent Grids and Microgrids: manage independently owned commercial and industrial grids and microgrids
  • Advanced Data Quality Analytics: Analyze, validate, and improve transformer to meter assignment, phase assignment, sizing of devices and conductors, asset health indexes, prior outage causes and future outage prediction, and other data quality factors based on AMI and/or SCADA data and distribution network models

Grid360 DA processes balanced transmission and three-phase unbalanced distribution as well as meshed and radial networks in the same unified network scenario, and is based on Nexant’s advanced Power Flow, State Estimation, Market Simulation, and Optimal Dispatch applications.  It enables utilities to maximize their return on smart grid investments by analyzing the efficiency of the entire distribution and/or transmission grid and prescribing options for further optimization. Grid360 DA provides the advanced capabilities that utilities need to evaluate and maximize grid modernization investments and provide reliable, safe, and efficient power by optimizing both traditional and grid edge resources. Your distribution network is changing. Manage it with confidence with Grid360 DA.
