What We Do

Distribution

The Shifting Landscape

Increased visibility, control, automation and operational flexibility have become business imperatives for distribution operations. Ratepayer reliability expectations, distributed energy resources, communication network capabilities and dovetailing of metering systems and customer programs such as demand response require systems that support operators as they adapt to changing system conditions.

Advanced Distribution Management Systems (ADMS) and Outage Management Systems (OMS) facilitate operator monitoring and control of the distribution grid to maintain or improve reliability and efficiency. Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS) enable distribution system operators to accommodate and leverage distributed energy resources, and when coupled with ADMS support overall distribution grid optimization.

Utilicast assists our clients in the definition, acquisition, and implementation of these essential systems and associated work processes to enable efficient distribution system operation now and in the future.
