Smart Meter Implementation to improve LV Safety + EESA Qld chapter AGM

Smart Meter Implementation to improve LV Safety + EESA Qld chapter AGM

This presentation will focus on the value smart meter data analytics applications (or so-called use cases) can add to an Electricity Distribution network. This will cover a range of use cases from network visualisation, decision making support, and the use of artificial intelligence combined with real time decision-making to automate operational activities.

The presentation will focus on a few of the use cases United Energy implemented over the last few years, showing the results and the mechanisms through which these applications assist our Network Planning, Asset Management, Control Room, Field Services and Financial departments on a day to day basis.
