Grid Analytics and IoT Platform


An end-to-end solution for reducing non-technical losses by 50% in less than 3 years.

the TGI Platform

TGI - True Grid Intelligence - is a combination of software and IoT devices that helps utilities monitor their distribution network and find problems on the grid faster.

TGI Lite, combined with our suite of Raptor sensors, allows for an unprecedented level of insight into live grid conditions.

Data collected from devices out in the field lives within the easy to use, concise interface of TGI Lite, enabling fast energy balancing and basic grid monitoring.

TGI Aware is not only connected to every sensor deployed in your grid, it also understands the intricacies of the network it’s operating on. Track GIS changes over time, segment the grid according to your preferences, and understand the relationship between various grid elements in TGI’s clean interface.

TGI Aware also boasts powerful mesh networking tools, and is able to untangle the most complicated situations out there. 
 

A powerful mix of software, IoT devices and services, TGI Premium predicts where losses are
costliest and ROI is highest, then
gives investigative teams tools to
identify losses quickly and collect
evidence for legal and audit purposes. 

TGI Premium also boasts all the features available to Aware subscribers.

TGI for the Smart Grid

 
Infographic-02-r.jpg

Awesense's TGI software provides an  accurate understanding of the distribution grid, and helps reduce outages and financial loss due to unknown losses and theft. TGI software offers a comprehensive and systematic approach, using true grid data to:

  • Provide situational awareness of high risk service areas 
  • Prioritize services areas that require investigation
  • Identify load and consumption anomalies
  • Identify and prioritize losses in the distribution grid
  • Automate intelligent energy audits
  • Identify and prioritize specific loads for further inspection

 

MANAGING RISK AND MANAGING PERFORMANCE

Utilities cannot permanently install monitoring devices everywhere that theft or other losses might occur - it is not economically feasible. And purely analytics solutions relying on meter data miss all the in-grid data. TGI solves the problem. TGI applies a rigorous, systematic approach to reducing losses, improving operational efficiency and contributing to the bottom line. 

Dashboards provide progress towards goals, and KPIs to C-level executives.

USING ALL THE DATA AVAILABLE 

Like most analytics software, TGI software can integrate data from multiple sources to perform its analysis:

  • Substation automation and distribution automation systems (SCADA)
  • Automatic meter reading (AMR) systems
  • Advance metering infrastructure (AMI)
  • Meter data analytics (MDA) systems
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Customer Information Systems (CIS)
  • Asset Management Systems (AMS)

An important advantage of the TGI platform is that you don't need ALL these systems in place to begin finding losses. Our customers that do not yet have AMI are still able to find up to 50% of their losses in about 3 years. The more data TGI has the better, but TGI can delivers results based on in-grid data even in grids with limited investment in smart grid technologies.

 

 

ANALYZING RISK

Our methodology, based on the identification, analysis and management of risk has its roots in the finance and insurance sectors. Predicting risk, setting goals, and measuring success drives ongoing steady improvement - in any sector.

 

TGI divides the grid into statistically relevant segments - accounting for project objectives, number and type of customers per segment and size of area that can be feasibly investigated.

IDENTIFYING THE HIGHEST RISK SEGMENTS OF THE GRID

  • Provide situational awareness of high-risk service areas in the distribution grid using the Risk Advisor
  • Prioritize services areas that require investigation
  • Identify load and consumption anomalies

 

FOCUSING INVESTIGATIONS ON THOSE SEGMENTS

  • Identify and prioritize losses in the grid
  • Automate intelligent energy audits
  • Identify and prioritize individual service points for detailed investigations
  • We provide operational plans and tools to optimize field investigations
  • Provide an audit trail for future litigation.

 

Energy balances are automatically calculated throughout the grid and anomalies are highlighted. Analysts can drill down to see further details.

USING THE RESULTS - MACHINE LEARNING

  • Feed results back into the Risk Advisor to make each analysis iteration more effective
  • Enrich the analysis with accurate sampled data

 

MANAGING PERFORMANCE

  • Methodically improve loss reduction programs
  • Track progress towards goals through role-base dashboards
  • Gain better understanding of true grid operations and develop a risk model that can be incorporated into a wider enterprise risk strategy

TGI Raptor
Sensors

 

The TGI Raptor series are portable, easily deployed high accuracy IoT sensors with integrated wireless communication. Designed to work with TGI software out-of -the-box, these sensors collect in-grid data which flows into the TGI software and helps utilities: 

  • Identify and measure power loss from many types of diversions 
  • Identify commercial and industrial meter malfunctions and installation problems 
  • Increase efficiency of phase and load balance analysis 
  • Efficiently verify meter tampering flags and alerts using risk-based metrics 

The TGI Raptors are designed for easy deployment and re-deployment on live electrical cables to measure and report on live line loading conditions.  Single-phase raptors can be installed and removed from the ground by a single person, without service disruption. Readings are viewable immediately on your laptop or tablet.

 

FLEXIBLE COMMUNICATIONS

TGI Raptors transmit collected data via cellular network or self-healing RF Mesh radio network.  The cellular schedule is automatically optimized based on power consumption and battery levels. 

 

ChoICE of Models

Working Together

Awesense works with distribution utilities in North America, Eastern Europe, and Africa to implement the TGI system. Our data scientists, engineers and project managers are dedicated to integrating TGI with your existing systems and providing value as quickly as possible. We work together with your teams to combine our experience and best practices with your local grid knowledge.

Every utility has its own unique characteristics - and TGI works best when it has access to these parameters. We provide training to your staff so they can get the most out of the system and we offer on-going support to ensure TGI continues to reduce losses and deliver value.

 

Proven Results

In many cases, Awesense begins with a proof of concept phase to demonstrate the effectiveness of TGI prior to a full deployment. We will work with your team to jointly execute the TGI performance cycle until objectives are met and your team is fully trained and self-sufficient.

TGI is delivered as a cloud-based Saas offering, so there is no IT infrastructure overhead. 

  • We integrate data from various sources such as grid topology data (typically from a GIS system), power flow data (typically from a SCADA system), and risk data (such as tamper flags, customer type, historical consumption, etc.).
  • We combine your local expertise with our best practices to develop a powerful risk model.
  • We provide training to ensure that your team develops mastery of their TGI methodology and tools.
  • We work with your team to iterate through the TGI performance cycle to narrow in on cases of greatest interest.
