Load Management solutions provides a suite of applications to optimize load preservation, determine time-of-use efficiency, and implement control strategies to reduce operating costs and maximize the value of your energy investment. Load Allocation software considers automatic meter reading (AMR 15-minute)
of kW and kvar demand combined with a number of methods to allocate the load correctly for each load point.
Most power flow programs are used to study power systems from the substation down to the primary terminals of the distribution transformers. What should the load be for each transformer? Until recent years, the only information that engineers would have about the load would be the transformer kVA rating. In some cases, the kWh consumption of each customer was known in addition to information on which customers were connected to each transformer.
Load Preservation first calculates the minimum required power to be shed for each subsystem and accordingly selects the optimal combination of loads that will satisfy the requirements.
The Load Restoration application minimizes the duration of an outage following a disturbance by automatically restoring power to the available portions of the system while maintaining fault isolation without exceeding the capacities of alternate power sources and routes.
