Landis+Gyr’s Revelo(TM) Brings Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning to the Edge of the Grid
Landis+Gyr is presenting the latest advancements in grid edge intelligence with the introduction of its Revelo metering platform at DISTRIBUTECH 2020 in San Antonio this week. With the Revelo release, Landis+Gyr is changing the way utilities visualize the quality of power delivery at the edge of the grid, enabling them to manage energy more proactively.
Combining edge computing with Landis+Gyr’s proven grid metering technology for waveform data capture, Revelo enables utilities to develop real-time pattern recognition of energy delivery. Over time, machine learning in the meter will provide immediate feedback to quickly identify fault conditions and provide proactive safety alerts. Ultimately, this will support the growth and integration of otherwise disruptive distributed energy resources.
“Utilizing event recognition and pattern matching algorithms applied to high resolution metrology data from Revelo meters, it will be possible to both detect and categorize a variety of grid faults to quickly understand the cause and location. This is just one example of how sophisticated data sampling, combined with edge computing, can transform utility operations,” said Tim Weidenbach, Chief Product Officer at Landis+Gyr.
To realize the full capability of the Revelo platform, Landis+Gyr has partnered with cutting-edge companies that are transforming how distribution systems are managed and how consumers are served with high-value, real-time energy management solutions. Over the past year, Landis+Gyr has been working with Utilidata and Sense to ensure Revelo has the data sampling, edge computation, and networking needed for grid and consumer-facing applications.
“The key to modernizing and optimizing the electric grid is to match intelligent hardware with innovative software,” said Jess Melanson, President and COO of Utilidata. “Advanced metering must become a core operational platform to help manage an increasingly complex, decentralized, clean, and customer-centric grid. The Revelo platform has the advanced capabilities to make this a reality, enabling real-time, distributed data analysis, predictive modeling, and substation-to-meter optimization. We are thrilled to have teamed up with Landis+Gyr to make great strides towards realizing this future.”
Sense CEO Mike Phillips commented, “We’ve found that the key to engaging consumers with energy is to give them a detailed, real-time view of what is going on in their home. This requires functionality that was not previously available on AMI meters, like high-resolution waveform data, significant edge computation, and low latency networking. These features are now available on the Revelo metering platform.
“We’re excited that our partnership with Landis+Gyr has created a path for us to provide our software solutions for this next generation of utility meters, providing the full Sense consumer experience with no need for additional hardware in the home,” Phillips concluded.
