ARI integrates all the information from your smart meters, scada system, GIS system and ERP system into an all-powerful “network data lake”.
ARI allows you to manage all that information in an interdependent and dynamic fashion. You will be able to monitor your electricity network in a smarter, faster and more visual and interactive way than ever before.
ARI breaks information silos, combining them in a unique way, with spatial data (GIS), static data (e.g. electrical characteristic of each different element in the network) and real time data (real-time measures from smart meters or SCADA system) to create the ultimate Network Monitoring System.
How powerful is ARI, really?
Let’s take one example. A Plexigrid customer wanted to know, at a certain point in time, how many consumers were connected downstream from a certain distribution transformer, which was their combined instantaneous consumption and compare it with the power flow in the distribution transformer to understand the differences (generally, due to electrical or to commercial losses). Such a simple query proved not only time consuming, in order to extract data out of the GIS system, including the status of switches, fuses, IDs of the connected smart meters, and also to extract data from the SCADA system including the meters and the transformer but also complicated and cumbersome compiling all the data together. In addition, depending on the size of the query, processing times could take up to hours… With Plexigrid’s ARI technology this is done simply: a single query and a few milliseconds to resolve… Truly mind blowing…
Best in class network analytics
ARI has connectivity with business intelligence software, which allows it to build with ease, complex network management reports, KPIs, dashboards and graphs. ARI comes with valuable predefined reports you can create your own ones with ease… “No worries mate”.
