Electricity is one of the human race’s most amazing achievements. Every day, our survival depends on a very intricate system’s ability to deliver energy from its generation point to the vast landscape of varying consumers. To ensure their operations are stable and supply matches demand, utilities implement grid management systems consisting of a myriad of integrated, informational and operational solutions and siloed systems; including SCADA, AMI, DERMS, ADMS and GIS.
