Your source for solutions

Distribution Automation (DA) is providing great business value to utilities, offering up to 5x the ROI over AMI alone. Landis+Gyr has been providing DA solutions for over 25 years –leading the market in bringing together a total end-to-end solution for distribution grid management and monitoring. Our DA capabilities are built on a secure, highly reliable and scalable communications network. This enables two-way communication, including peer-to-peer, for a variety of DA and grid management applications. The RF Mesh backbone establishes continuous, around-the-clock communication paths for data collection, monitoring, and control functions. The network supports robust, low-latency communications with devices that enable a variety of use cases, including: FLISR, DER integration, volt/var monitoring and control, transformer monitoring, capacitor bank control, and transformer/ line monitoring.

Distribution network operators face ever-increasing challenges, with higher performance targets as customers and regulators raise the bar of expectations. The multi-purpose Gridstream communications network enables distribution utilities to deliver higher reliability, customer service and reduced operating costs while maintaining workforce safety and addressing major evolving technology challenges.

Our digital distribution automation solution eliminates the need for sending out a technician to make manual adjustments on your grid. This, in turn, reduces your operating costs and allows you to provide more reliable customer service.


The Multi-purpose Network Platform - Guiding You Through Grid Modernization

In today’s energy-dependent world, rarely is a single technology or solution capable of providing everything that utilities and consumers need to manage energy better. Landis+Gyr has been providing Distribution Automation solutions for over 25 years – leading the market in bringing together a total end-to-end solution for distribution grid management and monitoring.

The Gridstream® Distribution Intelligence solution from Landis+Gyr includes distribution automation capabilities built on a secure, highly reliable and scalable communications network. This enables two-way communication, including peer-to-peer, for a variety of distribution automation and grid management applications. DA radios leverage the backbone of the RF Mesh network to establish continuous, around-the-clock communication paths for data collection, monitoring, and control functions.

The RF network supports robust, low-latency communications with devices to enable applications such as auto-sectionalization, transformer monitoring, capacitor bank control and fault detection. Intelligent applications distributed among the DA radios and DA end devices allow decision making to happen at the device level and between multiple devices, in many cases, speeding results. These highly functional DA radios are interoperable with a multitude of distribution equipment that optimizes a utility’s investment today and for future upgradeability that aligns with the utility’s pace of business value.

Intelligent Sensing

Strategically placed throughout the distribution network, sensors provide multiple benefits including identification of fault locations and causes to support quicker restoration efforts and proactive actions to avoid future unplanned outages. This can drive improvements in reliability performance indices like SAIDI and CAIDI. Landis+Gyr’s S610 Line Sensor is an intelligent sensor that provides fault detection, captures key power quality data for day-to-day grid management and supports renewable energy integration with the ability to detect and report on reverse power flows.

Intelligent Automation and Control

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) provides the remote visibility and control required for operating the power system. The use of SCADA in the distribution system allows operators in the control center to monitor the activity and status of field devices. These include reclosers, voltage regulators, switches, and other electronically controlled devices that are equipped with communications technology such as the Landis+Gyr integrated DA radios. Operators can also issue commands to remote devices to take actions like open or close, or change settings. The Gridstream Distribution Intelligence solution integrates with the utilities existing SCADA system as well as Landis+Gyr’s own SCADA solution, SCADA Center.

Secure

Secure Data Management

The power industry has generalized the use of the DNP3 protocol for control center to field device communications. The use of DNP3 in a gateway between the utility’s control system and the communications network ensures the security of the control operations, while supporting the continued use of legacy devices and protocalls such as DNP3, Modbus and others. Landis+Gyr’s DA Gateway is an intelligent communications gateway software solution that provides a configurable interface between utility centralized control applications and the communications network.

Distribution Management Systems

Distribution Management System

Distribution network operators face ever-increasing challenges, with higher performance targets as customers and regulators raise the bar of expectations. The multi-purpose Gridstream communications network enables distribution utilities to deliver higher reliability, customer service and reduced operating costs while maintaining workforce safety and addressing major evolving technology challenges. A multipurpose network expands capabilities for renewable integration, data analytics, outage management, load management, volt/var management, and more.


SCADA Center

Product Suite Driving the Intelligent Utility

Landis+Gyr’s SCADA Center is a suite of applications that delivers a full range of distribution automation functions, including distributed intelligence for data acquisition and control in the utility environment. These applications can be used as single, stand-alone systems, or interconnected to form a powerful host network system that shares data, control, and processing. When deployed as a series of distributed systems, components are available for centralized configuration, administration and monitoring. All SCADA Center applications run on standard or hardened PC hardware under the industry-standard Windows operating systems.
