Today’s extreme weather conditions cause more and more emergency situations every year. These emergencies represent a big challenge for today’s power supply companies.
The task to be solved in these critical situations is the processing of the huge volume of incoming data and their transmission by one-line messages (tolerant protection signals) to the operation controllers. In addition to this, high-tech equipment is to be provided in order to handle the large quantity of internal and external data and information.
According to the opinion of the Research Group of Applied Disciplines and Technologies in Energetics (AD&TE), the optimal solution to deal with the above challenges is the use of Smart Metering devices. The implementation of these devices will result in two directional communication which reduces troubleshooting time and simultaneously supplies the required quantity of information.
