Metrum participates at different Cigré conferences around the world and recently also participated in Santiago, Chile. The conference program was this time focused on the Distribution grid and had many different topics from new regulations to future system solutions to meet both the regulations such as the rising problems due to increasing amount of renewable energy sources.
Metrum Business Manager for South America, Henrik Tuveson, was one of the speakers presenting the latest monitoring solutions for distribution grid operators including Metrum Power Quality Solutions. The presentation mainly focused on benefits with monitoring the power quality of an electrical grid and how to secure operations and realize cost savings. In addition, the new PQ4Cast Solution that uses Artificial Intelligence used for pro-active control based on Power Quality measurement data was presented. The audience was shown the background to the successful development as a result from the recently performed European EPR-project that focused on how PQ-monitoring systems can be used to control and maximize the amount of renewable energy sources in the grid and still maintain acceptable levels of voltage quality according to national standards.
