Clevest Solutions Inc., a provider of mobile workforce automation software, has introduced its Smart Grid Visualization software product to help utilities visualize, assess and respond to advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) data.

The company notes that it co-developed the product with North Carolina-based Brunswick Electric Membership Corp. (BEMC). Clevest reports that the solution overlays near real-time smart meter data on top of its map-based view of field operations to provide utilities with relevant AMI information displayed within the visual context of their power distribution system.

According to Clevest, the software helps create opportunities for utility system operators to quickly and accurately identify problems, resolve issues and improve reliability. The offering can be fully integrated with AMI, geographic information systems (GIS), outage management systems, customer information systems and other enterprise systems, the company notes.

BEMC plans to integrate Smart Grid Visualization with its GIS solution in order to see and assess smart meter information in relation to substations and other assets.

"We now have a platform for visualization that allows us to correlate AMI data with meter and customer information to more accurately pinpoint the root cause and location of an issue," comments David Adams, manager of information service at BEMC. "This will allow us to be much more proactive in troubleshooting."
