GE has delivered 100 Multilin DGCM Field Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) to Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD). The design, delivery and installation of the RTUs were completed in eight months.

In partnership with the U.K.'s University of Reading, SSEPD is using the RTU real-time low-voltage network performance data to analyze energy usage patterns on its grid, which GE says can then be identified, categorized and used to forecast future loading of the grid to improve future investment decisions and improve efficiency and reliability.

"With complexity of electrical grids continuing to increase and more focus being put on the accelerated integration of renewable energy sources, the control of connected loads and understanding current grid conditions are key factors in future planning,” says GE Digital Energy’s Luis Perez. “GE is helping utilities remotely monitor distribution assets in real time so they can analyze current grid data to plan for future power needs.”
