Our solution for you
The shift to alternative energy sources presents new challenges for grid operators. Our integrated solution SMIGHT Grid helps to master them successfully. Based on sensor and IoT technology, it enables to obtain data from the low-voltage grid.
Transparency in the
distribution grid for a
successful energy transition
In the upcoming years, the increase in electromobility and alternative energy concepts will cause both the share of consumers and the share of suppliers in the low-voltage grid to rise sharply. Especially today’s low-voltage grids are not designed for the increase in electromobility. The question is thus not whether, but when an overload will occur.
Considering the enormous economic costs caused by power failures this must be prevented. Therefore, intelligent feed-in and load management is required in addition to a targeted grid expansion. However, no solution is currently available that collects the necessary data and makes it directly usable to grid operators. Existing approaches focus either on precise measurement technology without process integration or on generic IoT platforms without measurement devices.
Monitor grid loads
instead of getting surprised by it.
SMIGHT Grid collects data in the low-voltage grid and measures the effective value of the current at substations by applying new sensor and IoT technology. Using a simple process, operators can determine extensively, in real time and with geographical reference where grid capacity limits are reached. Thus, SMIGHT Grid enables targeted grid expansion, dynamic load management and eventually a successful energy transition (German Energiewende).
In 3 steps to the
In order to obtain transparency about grid load, the collection of measured data is of crucial importance for grid operators. Use intelligent sensors and IoT technology for your existing substations.
Data only becomes usable when it is pooled centrally. This happens on our in-house developed IoT platform SMIGHT IQ, with which we also monitor your devices and keep them up to date.
Now it is your turn: You will receive the processed data from us in order to directly derive measures for a demand-oriented grid expansion. Thanks to our open system architecture transferring data to third-party platforms is possible at any time.
Innovative grid sensor technology
The current sensor developed jointly with Netze BW GmbH can be installed universally and area-wide in existing infrastructures. For the supply of the sensor hardware, energy harvesting is used.
Sensor Data as a Service
By using the SMIGHT Grid Gateway and state-of-the-art technology, we collect, store, aggregate and transfer the measured data securely encrypted via mobile network. Therefore, the development of an additional infrastructure for data transfer is not necessary. Secured on our IoT platform hosted in Germany, we make the data available to you for direct use.
Use our SMIGHT IQ web portal to visualize and analyze your measured data. Password-protected access takes place via any device with Internet access and browser. By using open interfaces and formats, the integration of platforms of other software providers is possible at any time.
Ensuring the energy transition through demand-oriented grid planning is a major task. Rely on SMIGHT Grid to handle it.
From sensor technology to data analysis, you receive a comprehensive solution from one hand. We are at your side with support for all process modules and training for your employees.
