How technology convergences benefit the smart grid

Editor's Note: To understand what's next for the convergence of smart grid technologies be sure to check out [email protected] , November 12-13. The term "convergence" aptly describes some important smart grid trends. Grid modernization is tremendously influenced by the convergence of IT or information technologies into what is typically known as OT (operations technologies) that manage traditional utility power grid operations. One result is that formerly non-communicative equipment like meters and transformers can transmit and receive data for remote monitoring and control. Business intelligence and data analytics solutions, long available in other business sectors, are now being deployed by utilities to support proactive grid management. The benefits of IT/OT convergence include reduced costs and carbon footprints and improved grid reliability through intelligent mainten...
