Telvent GIT S.A., a real-time IT solutions and information provider, has announced that Texas-based utility Austin Energy is implementing Telvent's latest release of its advanced distribution management system (ADMS), which combines a distribution management system, outage management system, and supervisory control and data acquisition system.

With the capability to process and model an increasing amount of real-time data, as well as forecast near-term energy demand in the presence of distributed energy resources, the ADMS allows the utility to more efficiently operate the grid and support the deployment of renewable energy throughout the distribution network, the company adds.
