EPRI and the Institut de recherche d’Hydro-Québec (IREQ) evaluated two important applications of distribution system analytics—energy theft and meter connectivity—using real system data. Researchers collected and stored the data in a repository as a test bed for data mining and algorithm development.
Electric utilities worldwide are deploying a wide range of technologies for transmission and distribution systems and advanced metering infrastructure. In 2017, EPRI surveyed utilities about systems installed or planned over the next five years, with a focus on opportunities, benefits, and challenges associated with new technologies and data sources. EPRI administered the same survey in […]
Utilities are collecting exponentially greater amounts of data on customer electricity use through advanced metering infrastructure—an integrated system of smart meters, communications networks, and data management systems that enables two-way communication between utilities and customers. This case study describes Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s efforts to implement customer data analytics, including the creation of an […]
