ABB and Elster Announce Innovative Smart Grid Loss Detection Application
Initiative highlights commitment to advancing AMI for grid modernization
The loss detection application will be available as part of ABB's FeederAll™, a distribution and planning analysis tool, and will incorporate time-synchronized metering data from Elster's EnergyAxis® System for AMI. The result is a powerful, easy-to-use graphical analysis tool that aggregates endpoint meter data along the distribution network, allowing utilities to identify and isolate suspected system loss locations.
Elster, a leader in smart metering and smart grid systems and solutions, and ABB, a global leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance, today announce the development of a new revenue grade medium voltage metering node, uniquely suited to meeting critical medium voltage monitoring needs of the smart grid.
