A switch for flawless power
and an efficient grid
Significance of IOT in power grid
Since 1881, the overall power grid system has been built up over more than 13 decades, meeting the ever increasing demand for energy. Power grids are now been considered to be one of the vital components of infrastructure on which the modern society depends. It is essential to provide uninterrupted power without outages or losses. It is quiet hard to digest the fact that power generated is not equal to the power consumed at the end point due to various losses. It is even harder to imagine the after effects without power for a minute. Power outages occur as result of short circuits. This is a costly event as it influences the industrial production, commercial activities and consumer lifestyle.
Government & independent power providers are continuously exploring solutions to ensure good power quality, maximize grid uptime, reduce power consumption, increase the efficiency of grid operations and eradicate outages, power loss & theft. Most importantly, the solution should provide a real-time visibility to customers on every penny paid for their energy. There is an increasing need of a centralized management solution for more reliable, scalable, and manageable operations while also being cost effective, secure, and interoperable. In addition, the solution should enable power providers and utilities to perform effective demand forecasting and energy planning to address the growing need for uninterrupted quality power.

HUGE ENERGY LOSSES
GRUELING FAULT DETECTION
INACCURATE ENERGY METERING
Technical & commercial losses due to energy dissipation in the equipments used for transmission and distribution of power.
Determination of faults (What, where and when) needs a lot of effort and time which results in power failures for a longer span.
Poor metering infrastructure by the utilities results in poor energy accounting, demand forecasting and lack of visibility.
LACK OF VISIBILITY
MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS
Consumers have meagre visibility to their energy usage, pricing of every volt throughout the day and other energy parameters that leads to poor energy planning.
Detecting the flaws manually is time consuming and needs a lot of human effort. This results in increased downtime and high man power cost.
Aging infrastructure, reactive monitoring and poor fault detection leads to higher maintenance and OPEX.

The POWER for PRODUCTIVITY
Engineered for uninterrupted & quality power
The best in class characteristics of our sophisticated solution
Emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) paves way for smarter solutions that provides efficient and streamlined grid operation while also ensuring continuous supply of quality power. Join hands with Evolution Technology Group’s power grid monitoring solution to be part of the next generation grid revolution.
Built on our IoT platform, power grid monitoring solution acquires data from a series of sensors and Remote Terminal Units (RTU) on various parameters (voltage, switch status, current etc.).This enables the operators to make informed decisions on demand forecast planning, billing and energy accounting.
Evolution Technology Group’s remote monitoring capability enables remote data collection and leverages domain analytics to deliver actionable business insights. Customers can now get a crystal clear picture of overall grid parameters such as the I/O voltage and current, Power factor, load, losses and energy usage on the go. They can be remotely accessed and controlled under a single console and also enable quick decision making in streamlining the grid operations.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) takes greater control over energy costs and a more reliable energy supply for consumers. Energy meter helps utilities to have a track of how much energy is been distributed from the grid and consumed at the end point. This in turn enables precise energy accounting, demand forecasting and streamlining grid operations. Smart metering enables consumers to get energy info from utilities on their usage pattern and peak hour pricing. This also helps them in efficient billing and energy planning.
Remote Security & Surveillance
- Regulate access to remote sites. PIR Sensor detects unauthorized movement in the site or substation and raises an alert
- Vibration detectors sense and raise an alarm in the event of tampering of high value assets
- Smoke sensors and temperature sensors detect the breakout of a fire and trigger instant local actions such as raising instant alerts, sounding a hooter at the site, triggering messages to fire department or turning on the water sprinkler system.
- Monitor the remote sites 24*7 with on-site surveillance cameras and stay updated
- Door Contact sensors indicate if a substation door is open or closed. An alert is raised if a critical door is open leading to possible hazards
Hourly/daily/monthly reports can be exported, isolating the good, bad and ugly devices to perform business analytics. Customizable dashboard helps easing out the customer by providing sufficient data that is required. User activity report to keep track of who did what and when!
Proactive monitoring determines the condition of power lines, circuit breakers, substation parameters and other related devices to predict when the maintenance/repairs should be performed. This approach promises cost savings as the maintenance is performed only when warranted by making use of insights from Evolution Technology Group’s Advanced Analytics module.
Take total control of the grid lines and substations from all over the map at a single touch point. Pin points the grid level status and fault indications across various locations of a map. This enables on-time maintenance services and increases the efficiency of grid operations.
