IBM and Telvent have been selected by Hydro One for a new smart grid project in which the two companies will run simulations and tests to determine the appropriate smart grid technologies for the Ontario-based utility.

IBM says the advanced distribution system project will help the utility identify and assess equipment, test new delivery models for electricity, and validate the costs and benefits anticipated with a new smart grid.

In addition, the project intends to enable an increased amount of distributed generation into the grid, as well as help increase the reliability of the current distribution system and improve outage management during large-scale situations.

As the overall system integrator, IBM will provide expertise in smart grid technologies, planning and implementation to oversee the reliability of the network solution. Hydro One will use Telvent's advanced distribution management system, a real-time solution that provides functionality for planning, operation and analysis of the distribution system, according to IBM.
