Power Analytics Software Installed at ABB Smart Grid Center of Excellence
Power Analytics’ Paladin Live software was recently installed at the new ABB Smart Grid Center of Excellence at N.C. State University’s Centennial Campus to showcase the importance of integrating real-time data and displaying the information in a user-friendly format. The Power Analytics integration display will be presented April 23-26, 2012 at ABB Automation & Power World, ABB’s premier annual customer event held this year in Houston.
The Power Analytics software will communicate with ABB substation automation MicroSCADA Pro equipment using object embedded and linking process control (OPC). OPC is an industrial connectivity standard that enables the transfer of data between automation hardware and software. Power Analytics Paladin Live and MicroSCADA Pro will work in concert to achieve complete functionality for real-time monitoring, management, decision support, and control of primary and secondary equipment in transmission and distribution substations. The information can be displayed locally or remotely using typical web browsers.
Rajan Chudgar, vice president of smart grid for Power Analytics will present the Paladin Live software at the annual ABB Automation & Power World.
“We are proud to be a partner with ABB to show how electrical data streams can be integrated into one data system. We will demonstrate how our Power Analytics graphical interface screens display data and perform model-validated analytics on the electrical network,” said Chudgar.
“Customers require the need for system integration analytics and the ability to display the information in a user-friendly format regardless of the downstream protocols,” said Tony Leszczynski, channels business development manager for ABB. “The intuitive Paladin Live software from Power Analytics achieves this goal while eliminating duplication of databases, and making data universally accessible over various operating systems, not to mention lowering the overall cost.”
