Power

The electric grid system traverses enormous expanses of remote territory with the potential for thousands upon thousands of data site locations. Many of these data site locations are outside the realm of accessible power and wired communication, which makes Silversmith's Data Points End-to-End technology the perfect fit for this industry. By monitoring volt-VAR levels in real time at each end of the line distribution point, a control system can improve operations and keep it optimized. Having sensors on the system becomes even more important as plug-in electric vehicles and photovoltaics become more prevalent and increase the need for measuring bi-directional power flow. Today, much of the electric grid is already being monitored and displayed, but Silversmith's Data Points End-to-End technology allows utilities to capture more remote locations to provide a higher resolution set for even better control and optimization.
