The Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison) Smart Grid Deployment project involves the deployment of smart grid systems and components to enhance electric distribution planning and operations. It is aimed at reducing operations and maintenance costs and deferring distribution capacity investments while increasing distribution efficiency, reliability, and power quality. The project is deploying various types of equipment such as substation and feeder monitors, automated switches, and capacitor automation devices on 1,388 feeder lines to improve operational efficiency and control. When combined with the integration of distribution management systems and (SCADA) systems, the automated devices allow Con Edison to better control its distribution and improve the reliability of its electricity service.
