Today’s electric grid includes an abundance of smart meters, communicating controls, power line sensors, and thousands of other intelligent endpoints. All these devices are creating exponential growth in the amount of analytical data that utilities try to make sense of to improve grid reliability, increase efficiency, and provide superior customer service.
The thousands of terabytes of data locked in these structured databases represent only a fraction of the utility’s collective intelligence. The rest is trapped in unstructured data found in reports, emails, white papers, customer interactions and experiential observations from employees – what we refer to as “tribal knowledge”.
Energy and Utility industry apps from App Orchid unlock and integrate EMS and SCADA data with ERP data, enterprise unstructured data, weather and market indicators to revolutionize the management of a utility smart grid.
With the power of App Orchid artificial intelligence, machine learning and natural language processing, operations teams get real-time insights on which meters are performing, where maximum loss is occurring and its’ impact on operational costs, customer service, and revenue. Smart grid and meter operations are optimized in minutes, unlocking all energy and utility data to deliver insights previously not possible.
It’s time to make smarter, more accurate decisions on how to engineer and manage your energy and utilities operations.
App Orchid’s dynamic apps perform deep learning to identify patterns, trends, risks, and opportunities previously impossible with traditional analytical tools.
Easy to use apps allow users to type in questions such as: “How do we optimize generation dispatch at 2pm tomorrow if there is a 40% cloud cover?” Insights, delivered in minutes, enable operations teams to prioritize limited resources and dispatch crews quickly and efficiently.
Blend the app with outage management data and field workforce maintenance reports to unlock comprehensive grid resiliency forecasting. Questions such as: “Which transformers are most likely to fail in the first week of August and how long will it take to restore service?” are answered in real-time along with actionable insights.
App Orchid blends operational data, tribal knowledge, and external data into simple, intelligent, cognitive computing apps that make analyzing your energy and utility enterprise data as simple as downloading a travel app on your smart phone. You can deploy apps in as little as several months, not several years, and at a cost of thousands, not millions of dollars.
There’s no easier way to increase the business value of your data and infrastructure across the energy and utility value chain.
