Transmission & Distribution Asset Analytics

Transmission & Distribution Asset Analytics

Challenges in Monitoring and New Technologies

July 21, 2021 | Online :: Central Time

Amidst aging transmission and distribution infrastructure, digitally forward asset managers, equipped with advanced analytics tools are realizing significant gain from using data analytics to improve asset health. Data analytics can be used to monitor T&D assets to gauge their performance, predict and prevent failures, and prioritize asset renewal. Newer technologies are being used in the collection of data to be analyzed while grid components such as energy storage can cause issues but also assist in the planning of system upgrades and replacements. As a result, improved decisions can be made on asset strategy and O&M budget spending on aging T&D infrastructure.

At EUCI’s Transmission & Distribution Asset Analytics Summit, participants will gain strategic insights on how data analytics is playing a key role in their asset investment decisions. The summit also provides beneficial best practices from leading utilities on how to utilize data to optimize asset performance and make ‘maintain or replace’ decisions.

Learning Outcomes

1:50 – 2:50 p.m. :: Risk Management Practices and Applications

Risk Management is one of the six core components of an asset management system, and in many ways it is the most difficult one to implement for the following reasons:

  • It deals with uncertainty
  • It requires judgement
  • It can’t always be adequately quantified
  • It is becoming more important than ever before
  • It is becoming more complex than ever before

This presentation will discuss the current state of risk management within the realm of asset management, and how risk management practices can be applied to challenges such as asset failures, resiliency, and investment planning.

Tom Myers, Principal Asset Management Consultant, HDR

2:50 – 3:10 p.m. :: Afternoon Break

3:10 – 4:00 p.m. :: Lowering Costs with Big-Data Analytics and Technology to ‘See’ Underground Part 1

 Ever wish you could drive by and see the condition of your underground distribution and transmission cable systems?  What if a technology existed to provide a foot-by-foot profile, pinpoint manufacturing and installation defects before the installers walk off site, and prevent millions of dollars in future operation and maintenance costs?  What if the same technology could be used to assess the health of aged cable systems that have been damaged by extreme operating conditions and direct expenditures as part of a FERC-approved, all-capital program to double or triple the life of existing assets and reduce replacement costs by up to 70%? 

Ben Lanz, Director – Technology, IMCORP

4:00 – 4:50 p.m. :: Lowering Costs with Big-Data Analytics and Technology to ‘See’ Underground Part 2

 Continuing this presentation in more depth to see how utilities are using services based on cutting-edge technology and big-data analytics has been proven to dramatically lower life-cycle costs based on field experience encompassing 200 million feet of cable, two decades, and 80 utilities in 17 countries.
