nPravaahAMS

Managing a reliable grid cost-effectively, is a growing challenge for utilities, particularly when viewed in the larger context of system complexity, aging assets, and increased customer expectations. Improving assets performance is a pressing issue in ensuring reliability for the utilities. Capturing data and record keeping are at the heart of asset management. This data can come from multiple sources throughout the organization. Existing methods comprise of multiple independent tele-supervisory subsystems, with a decentralized configuration, designed to measure and monitor individual or a group of assets. There is not a single system that can integrate and share information amongst the various systems and provide a holistic view for all utility assets. Our Asset Management System (nPravaahAMS) developed on an Internet of Things (IoT) platform, resides on top of all disparate utility systems and provides a consolidated view of the assets from a central location. This system integrates information from various existing systems such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Substation Automation System (SAS), Distribution Automation System (DAS), Advanced Meter Infrastructure(AMI) etc. as well communicate with intelligent and communicable devices like energy meters, remote terminal unit (RTU), remote monitoring unit (RMU), and other equipment. The collated data is analyzed using intelligent algorithms and helps in real time decision support to the utility managers by giving them a complete overview of asset performance across the utility. This also helps in proactive asset maintenance deferring large capex requirements due to system breakdown.
