Trimble DMS provides the automation and tools to efficiently manage the switching state of the entire electricity distribution network from the main supply points down to smart meters. The distribution management system features seamless interoperability with substation automation and advanced metering infrastructure, and offers powerful, reliable services for distribution network monitoring and operations support for both MV and LV networks.
Trimble DMS contains a complete set of functions to plan upcoming actions and register past events regarding switching operations, alarm notifications, permits and other safety precautions.
Various incidents, such as sustained faults and planned interruptions on all voltage levels, can be managed with the system. Computational fault location, extensive trouble call management and various real-time analyses enable efficient and optimal supply restoration.
The tools for internal communication provide real-time location and status information from field crews to steer fieldwork.
Trimble DMS also enables producing an outage history database and performing accurate analyses of direct compensation and outage statistics.
The functionality covers distribution management tasks, such as
The high performance of Trimble DMS is enabled by productized integrations to network information, SCADA, AMR solutions and outage communication tools. Information from an external GIS system can be utilized in connection with our distribution management solution.
"Without doubt, Trimble DMS has made a valuable contribution to our improved efficiency. The real-time information it produces means that our operations personnel have a constant hands-on approach to the network. Absolutely nothing is left to chance. The network is continually under surveillance with any incidents reported as they happen."
