Cyan and GridSense team up to provide smart grid solutions in India

 Cyan, an integrated system and software design company, has announced that it has signed a agreement with GridSense Inc. to jointly market smart grid solutions in India and other emerging regions that will enable utilities to accurately monitor energy distribution and consumption all the way from the distribution transformers to the meters.
GridSense and Cyan will deliver smart grid solutions to support the reduction of Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses in India and other emerging regions. AT&C losses include technical losses in transmission and distribution as well as commercial losses caused by low metering efficiency and theft.
Cyan’s smart metering platform, CyLec Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), provides bidirectional communication between the customers’ meter and the utility, enabling functionality such as meter reading, fault detection and tamper alerts. This enables a utility to accurately monitor the energy consumption at the meter level and take action when an issue is detected.
GridSense has developed a transformer level system, TransformerIQ that maximises intelligence and minimises costs at the power distribution level. TransformerIQ enables energy providers to monitor all potential distribution transformer failure modes and detects early warning signs, including asset deterioration and illegal activities.
Using a combination of the Cyan and GridSense solutions, utility customers will be able to accurately measure consumption at the district transformer and compare this with that measured by the combined AMI meters in the same area to detect technical problems as well as tampering and theft.
