Cluj-Napoca, Romania — (METERING.COM) — August 23, 2010 – Cluj-Napoca City has selected IT solutions and information provider Telvent to install the first distribution management system (DMS) for a medium voltage network in Romania, the company has announced.
To assist with the project, Telvent will work with its Romanian partner, EnergoBit, to complete the modernization of more than 60 transformer substations with Saitel smart remote terminal units (SRTU). With the integration of an advanced DMS and SRTU technology, Cluj-Napoca City will take another step towards a smarter grid while increasing the efficiency of its operations, reducing operational expenditures and improving customer service satisfaction.
To provide complete functionality for the planning, operation and analysis of the distribution system, Telvent’s DMS will be installed at the dispatching center and will interface with the existing supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA), OASyS DNA. Utilizing a built-in advanced analytics engine, Telvent’s DMS allows the user to visualize a mathematical model of the distribution network, including detailed models for voltage management, microgeneration, frequency variation, demand response and other smart grid management functions.
“Integrating an advanced distribution management system is one of the best ways utilities can generate the information necessary to improve profitability and plan improvements for future smart grid enhancements,” said Telvent CEO Ignacio González. “We are proud to continue our partnership with EnergoBit and look forward to the positive results from the project for Cluj-Napoca following the installation of the DMS system.”
