Altran designs smart grid systems to improve safety and reliability in the power grid.
Providing diagnostic and supervisory control capabilities for substations, these systems collect and analyze real-time data on the state of the grid. Then, the smart grid systems make the changes necessary to prevent adverse effects on power delivery.
Data collected by smart grid systems include loads, voltages, currents, and waveforms. Typically, the data and supervisory control signals of smart grid systems are transmitted over fiber optic cable, but secure wireless communication methods are available as well.
