Tollgrade Communications Inc. has released the latest version of its LightHouse Sensor Management System (SMS) software, which the company says has predictive grid analytics capability.

According to Tollgrade, the software works with its inductively powered medium-voltage smart grid sensors to provide visibility throughout the distribution network. Using four layers of analytical processing, the software detects and classifies faults that cause outages in real time, Tollgrade adds.

"By having a library of fault events, outage detection and load planning data all in one software package, utilities can have the intelligence they need to restore outages faster today, and one day predict future problems before they cause outages on the distribution network,” says Edward H. Kennedy, company president and CEO.
