Smart grid analytics company Verdeeco says it has completed a pilot project with Wake Electric Membership Cooperative that tested Verdeeco's transformer analysis application and set the stage for the product to be rolled out in Wake Electric's service area near Raleigh, N.C.

The Verdeeco app provides near-real-time analysis, reports and alerts on the performance and utilization of transformers serving Wake Electric's more than 36,500 members. For example, when an internal utility report flagged 20 distribution transformers for immediate replacement, the Verdeeco app was able to accurately report more than 75% of them being appropriately utilized and not needing replacement, the company says.

"Verdeeco's cloud-based 'Grid as a Service' platform allows us to hand-select any combination of apps we want and then pull all the data into one easily-understood dashboard," says Don Bowman, Wake Electric's engineering manager.

The Transformer Loading application complements Wake Electric's existing use of Verdeeco's Meter Analysis and Blink Analysis applications.
