Blacksburg, Va.- John Federowicz, president of EDD, and Jason Bank, one of our senior engineers, attended the GE Digital Energy- Americas Software Summit in Colorado Springs, CO at the beginning of the month, along with about 350 customers, staff, partners, and media.
“Everyone at the summit was impressed by the momentum that the GE Digital Energy group has established around their GIS-OMS-DMS-mobile product suite,” said Federowicz. “EDD is proud to be a part of this solution and to be a GE partner.”
EDD has two applications with GE, A&O- LV and A&O-MV. DEW/ISM is integrated as a back-end calculation engine into the GE Smallworld platform. The designer lays out a secondary, LV, or primary, MV, design in Smallworld Analysis and Optimization. The topology is passed to the DEW/ISM engine, where power flow is run and the design components are optimized to meet the load. The results are then passed back to Smallworld. These applications provide the capability for utilities to embed power flow analysis directly into their GIS systems.
In future releases, we anticipate adding DER analysis capability into the A&O products.
