ABB demonstrates integration solutions for today's challenges at Distributech, January 28-30 in San Antonio, Texas

2013-12-13 - No other smart grid partner offers the breadth of systems expertise, equipment, software and communication technology. See for yourself in booth 1638 where you can attend demonstrations on integration solutions for today’s challenges, including storm response, distribution optimization and asset health.

Through the use of highly visual displays and hands-on demonstrations, customers will be able to see how our products communicate, monitor, and issue commands.

Product demonstrations

  • Storm response
    With the “100 year storm” happening every year, changing regulations  and increasing customer service-level expectations, utilities  need a solution that will enable them to better prepare and plan for these events.  To see how to prepare for these storms and reduce restoration time come by  the ABB booth where ABB and Ventyx will demonstrate three levels of storm response solutions which can help utilities decrease restoration time.

    Presentation times:
    Tuesday, 11:30 AM
    Wednesday, 1:30 PM
  • Asset health
    ABB and Ventyx will demonstrate how the combination of  IT and OT can be leveraged to provide an Asset Health solution that can enable asset intensive businesses to unlock the wealth of real-time sensing and monitoring data now. In combination with maintenance and enterprise data, utilities can pro-actively predict, prioritize, and act on potential risks to maximize up time, safety and total return on capital investments. 

    Presentation times:
    Tuesday, 2:00 PM
    Wednesday, 3:00 PM
  • Distribution optimization
    Need to lower peak demand, support sustainability, and promote customer engagement? 

    ABB and Ventyx will demonstrate several levels of Volt/VAr optimization (VVO) which can be used to reduce distribution losses and manage feeder voltages.  Learn how VVO is being implemented as a demand response tool to lower peak demand and to decrease T&D and generation capacity costs.  Additionally, discover how distribution optimization tools enable utilities to effectively manage and integrate distributed energy resources to increase use of renewable generation, energy storage, and microgrid technologies.
