CURRENT’s IDS 2000 goes beyond providing the basic raw grid data. Utilities can monitor in real time and get advanced warning of issues in the network in order to take proactive measures before the problem is noticed by customers or becomes widespread. When a widespread outage does occur, the IDS 2000 can provide a visual overview of where power has been restored and identify those geographic areas where homes or businesses remain without service.
Additionally, the IDS 2000 provides utilities with a clear view of the voltage running throughout its network a the sensors can enable the implementation of integrated volt/VAR control (IVVC) helping utilities deliver lower average voltages and save energy. Also, with significant strain put on the grid from electric vehicles, the IDS 2000 provides utilities with visibility into changing load profiles which can help utilities better manage electric vehicle adoption. The IDS 2000 complies with industry standards and meets all safety requirements.
