GE Power’s Grid Solutions business has launched an Advanced Distribution Management Solution (ADMS) in collaboration with Tata Power Delhi Distribution. The project has been executed by GE T&D India Limited – the listed entity of GE Power Grid Solutions in India. The newly launched ADMS will facilitate advanced monitoring, analysis and improve control and planning operations, enabling Tata Power-DDL to enhance the reliability, safety, and efficiency of Delhi’s distribution network. The system is set to benefit more than seven million people living in the north and west part of the Indian capital, an area that experiences a peak load of more than 1,850 MW.
Tata Power-DDL had multiple independent and inter connected systems that required complex data management. This layer of complexity impacts the operator’s effectiveness to execute network upgrades and speedier restoration of network outages. Tata Power-DDL needed an integrated system that could capture the network data seamlessly and act as a single source of information for their homegrown applications. GE’s ADMS solution, which integrates SCADA, OMS (Outage Management System) and DMS (Distribution Management System) on a single platform, is designed to overcome such challenges. It has a unified database for such distribution utility needs and can create/update its database based on the information received from the GIS automatically.
On the launch of the ADMS, Sanjay Banga, CEO, Tata Power-DDL said, “Technology is critical for innovation and creating new paradigms each passing day. We aim to create a utility of the future delivering smarter and sustainable power distribution through integration of complex technological domains. The new ADMS in collaboration with GE will enable us to further improve on our service and help us in achieving our objective of providing world class quality power supply to our consumers.”
