Data is becoming increasingly important to utilities for both network monitoring and control. But data alone does not give companies the information they need to make decisions on planning, maintenance and network operation to manage the impact of these changes.

Lucy Electric is working at the forefront of data monitoring and control. Its industry-leading GridKey LV/MV monitoring system and associated analytics enable customers to identify actionable information from the ocean of data collected from networks today.

Speaking at the Global Smart Energy Summit at Middle East Electricity 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Lucy Electric’s marketing director Phil Dingle will look at the value of network data to the multiple user groups within utilities as well as exploring possible network architectures for managing control and analytical needs.

Lucy Electric is well-placed to help its customers meet these data challenges and has a deep expertise in both monitoring and automation projects and are working with the latest techniques on projects across the world.

“We are constantly innovating and developing our monitoring and automation product ranges so that our customers can take advantage of the latest technology. Our experts work with utility companies to identify the right analytics to add value and give them greater visibility of their networks to help forecast and actively manage the network in real-time, manage flows and plan maintenance to improve reliability,” said the company spokesperson.

Lucy Electric will be showcasing the latest developments to the graphical interface for its GridKey range and launching an extension to its Gemini 3 remote terminal unit (RTU) range.

The new Gemini 3 Mini adds a high quality, entry level option to the market-leading range of Gemini 3 RTUs, giving customers greater cost and operational flexibility. The Mini can control up to six switches, either locally or remotely through an HMI module and is available as a ‘monitoring only’ option. It is a great solution for customers looking to manage costs without compromising on quality or functionality.
