Advancing Substation Automation

SmartSub from Development Science (DevSci) takes substation automation to the next level by leveraging critical, yet untapped fault, event, and disturbance data. The software system's automated collection, correlation, and intelligent analysis of "non-operational" data yield immediate insights on which utilities can take action to save time and money.

How can your utility benefit from SmartSub?

non-operational data n 1: complex, routinely unused substation data, such as records of faults, voltage disturbances, power grid fluctuations, equipment condition status, and environmental factors like lightning 2: All substation data other than the real-time, "operational" status of transmission and distribution systems
