Smart Grid Operation Platform - Monitor, control, optimize

With the Smart Grid Operation Platform, utilities are ideally equipped to meet the technical challenges in low-voltage grid management. Either the steadily increasing number of electric vehicles or the expansion of renewable energies. Staff on site as well as in the control center is always informed about components, values and conditions in the network and may intervene immediately if required. Data provided by smart meters, IoT sensors and common telecontrol is processed and forwarded for further processing to applications in the system. This facilitates grid planning.

VIVAVIS Smart Grid Operation Platform can be integrated into every infrastructure – be it as functional enhancement to an existing installation of the grid control system HIGH-LEIT or to an independent HIGH-LEIT system used to control low voltage networks only.


Ensuring a Clear Overview

Every important piece of information is clearly displayed in a map with zoom function. You see values and conditions of the complete distribution system, low voltage networks, stations, local area substations and cable terminal boxes as well as deviations from normal switching status.

Work everywhere

You may use the functions of the Smart Grid Operation Platform on both computers and mobile devices such as tablets.

Enable Navigation

By means of the search function, you are able to find the fastest and easiest route to addresses or assets. Routes may be displayed in OpenStreetMap or WMTS.

Secure Operation

Via mobile app, you are able to directly track and control actions in the system when working on site. You may activate temporary earthing or temporary generator supply. The system alerts in case of faulty switching and offers an overview of alarms issued.

Optimize processes

All values are stored related to electric currents, voltages, power history, reactive powers, etc. or provided by smart metering systems, IoT sensors and common measurement technology. Data is available for evaluation and serves as basis for process optimization.

Control Flexibility

The platform offers support when creating forecasts or schedules, and was designed to control a large number of devices. Furthermore, you may optimize loads to keep schedules and time control of flexibilities is also possible.

Your benefits for low voltage network control

Secure Grid Operation

Secure Grid Operation

Always topical data and info about current conditions facilitate secure switching in the low voltage grid and avoid maloperation.
Mobile Workstation

Mobile Workstation

Via mobile data, employees in the field can access the functions of the Smart Grid Operation Platform at any time. Changes on site are immediately visible in the head office, and route planning can be optimised.
Extensive Overview

Extensive Overview

All power units and every piece of data are displayed on a user interface. Everyone involved in the process sees the same information about the network. This helps minimizing misunderstandings.
Online Control

Online Control

Values and conditions of the complete low voltage network are visualized online, control commands can thus be sent immediately. This facilitates grid planning.
Quicker Reaction Times

Quicker Reaction Times

Comprehensive information available online enables users to react more swiftly and intervene. This reduces the time needed to restore supply.
Optimized Network Expansion

Optimized Network Expansion

Simplified interaction of components within the infrastructure improves the stability of the network and can thus reduce the need for network expansion.

Customised support for every user group

Whether network fitter or operator – our Smart Grid Operation Platform offers every user those functions required for smooth and proper workflow. Even staff in charge of planning grid connections and flexibility may benefit from the system’s capabilities.

Grid fitters Operators Staff in charge of planning grid connections and flexibility

Support for network fitters

Network fitters mainly work in the field. They install, operate and maintain distributing plants in the network and document their work. Here are some of the main features to support fitters:

  • Display of current switching status and standard switching status to enable secure switching in power systems.
  • Highlighting of circuit sections/assets being under construction and tracking of states of switches/fuses that cannot be read remotely to mirror the current switching status of the network in the system.
  • Display of latest values for voltage, electric current and power as well as a history of the last hours to enable evaluation of the network utilization.
  • Assets such as, for example, cable terminal boxes provide coordinates that can be entered into navigation systems.

Support for operators

Operators monitor and coordinate tasks of network fitters. They may even remotely interfere in the network management. Here are some of the main features to support operators:

  • Schematic and geographical network visualization including latest values for voltage, electric current and power to enable evaluation of the current network utilization.
  • Overview on faults, malfunctions and disturbances to facilitate and accelerate their location.
  • Display of historical values for voltage, electric current and power for each phase to improve planning necessary switching.
  • Highlighting of circuit sections/assets being under construction to inform other users about the current status
  • Logging and documentation of all actions in a way that will stand up in court

Support for staff in charge of planning grid connections and flexibility

All features mentioned above are also available for staff in charge of planning grid connections and flexibility. If you are interested, we look forward to explain the specific options of our Smart Grid Operation Platform in personal talks. Simply get in touch with your sales contact.

Further information

The low-voltage grid, also known as the distribution network, is an essential component of our modern energy infrastructure. The low-voltage grid, typically operating at 230 volts in Europe and 120 volts in North America, ensures that electrical energy reaches homes, businesses, and institutions safely and efficiently.

In the low-voltage grid, the transformation of high-voltage electricity to a level suitable for our needs takes place. This network spans the entire country and supplies power to millions of households. The low-voltage grid is designed to provide the necessary energy to electrical devices in residential and commercial establishments.

The stability and reliability of the low-voltage grid are crucial for daily life. Power outages in the low-voltage grid can cause significant inconveniences. Therefore, energy utilities work tirelessly to ensure the performance and efficiency of the low-voltage grid.

The low-voltage grid also plays a key role in integrating renewable energies into our power supply. The decentralized injection of electricity from renewable sources into the low-voltage grid enables a more sustainable energy supply.

In an era where electric mobility is gaining importance, the low-voltage grid is critical for expanding electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Thus, the low-voltage grid is the backbone of our power supply and plays a central role in our increasingly electrified world.
