Colombian utilities are using cellphone infrastructure to communicate with remote electricity distribution automation and improve quality of service
Colombia is experiencing rapid industrial development. As a result, the electricity demand of both multinational and local companies is escalating, requiring power companies to increase production while at the same time trying to maintain their sustainability and quality-of-service obligations.
Meeting these demands can be achieved if electricity distribution networks are equipped with intelligent distribution automation to improve supervision, control and internal quality standards while satisfying Colombian regulations. Such networks are known as “smart grids”.
This document describes two successful implementations––developed by PTI S.A. and the company’s represented brands––of distribution automation systems for smart grids, integrated to a control system utilizing the public cellphone networks to enable operators to monitor and control the systems.
