dealing with a substation power outage is a difficult business. for starters, youre dealing with a live system, and electricity is a hazardous material to begin with. you can't help but worry about the safety of the repair crew. its also tempting for a substation supervisor to second guess the decisions made by power engineers and make the situation worse. however, it is important to realize that quick decisions made during an emergency can save lives. to ensure that you make the best decisions possible, you need to have the right tools in your toolbox.

the power industry faces many challenges, including rapidly expanding user bases and the need for smart grids to work with an ever-increasing mix of distributed and mobile power sources. for a lot of utilities, this presents a number of different technology options for solutions, and this includes options to create an overall solution that spans beyond the main grids to the line side as well. this includes special smart appliance packages that can provide advanced power management, usage forecasting, and other intelligent usage systems. the key for these smart solutions to work, is for smart energy solutions to be developed together with various smart devices and appliances in the home. this includes devices such as power management and energy efficient lighting, plug load reduction devices, appliances that are currently being developed, as well as smart plug load devices that will become available in the coming months. while this may seem like the line side of the power management solution is second to none, the line side has to interface with all these different smart devices and make sure that all users are connected. its not until the line side is included in this solution that the real value is added. 3d9ccd7d82
