Building a Reliable and Resilient Grid

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The recognized need to build a reliable grid stems from the NERC Reliability Standards. These outline the need to maintain grid reliability (meet demand) and grid security (ensure the capacity to resist unforeseen adversity). In recent years, the concepts of reliability and resiliency are becoming increasingly intertwined.

The importance of Connectivity, Topology and GIS Accuracy for Utilities

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Having accurate connectivity, topology and GIS accuracy is crucial for utilities in planning, forecasting and monitoring efforts. Many utilities have realized the importance of building a ‘Digital Twin’, or digital representation of their electrical grid. However, an inaccurate representation of the grid is as good as no representation. An accurate digital grid is a connected grid. Achieving this begins by mapping out the elements and assets active within the system, then comes ensuring those elements are all connected.
