Making Utilities Smarter
Having a smart network that collects volumes of data from residential and commercial electric meters, utilizing a robust data management solution is essential for the utility sector. Providing secure, accurate and reliable data, Modam delivers operational efficiency that defines new frontiers to the business value.
Systems that operate with multiple isolated systems and databases, are prone to great bottlenecks, data losses and IT problems which lead to unoptimized resources, increasing staff and management costs thus reducing the efficiency of the whole system. Making the whole system as one integrated smart, fast, reliable and optimized smart network reduces the costs of field service, transferring data, providing real-time data needed for managing and growing the grid infrastructure to whole utility sector and customers.
Improving grid reliability, operations and customer satisfaction means collecting, validating, analyzing and acting on quality smart device data securely maintained in your data management system. To make these business activities function seamlessly, utilities rely on a data management system. Data management systems provide an ideal remedy that creates a system of record where consistent, secure and auditable processes are enforced, and where all users and external systems can access accurate and reliable data from smart meters.
The most important part of an MDM system is the data and more important the reliability of it. Reliability means data being accurately read from meters in predefined schedules without any system faults using powerful engine, resulting in regular, valid flow of data used to monitor, manage and develop the electricity grid providing operational efficiency and revolutionizing business value.
In monitoring and reading meter data, there are times that faults in the grid network or meter itself can cause missing data or wrong data. In these cases Modam has validation and estimation scenarios that are implemented in the engine and are customizable in many options by the customers, that depending on the configuration, it intelligently recognizes the false or missing value, calculates and replaces the data.
Validation rules help recognize the meter faults resulting into invalid data such as value in the future, data being lower or greater than average, data being lower or greater than a defined value per meter, negative consumption, value in the future and etc.
Estimation rules help fill missing or invalid data according to the configured values. Missing data can be caused by power outages and meter malfunction. Invalid data on the other hand, can be caused by many situations including meter malfunction in tariffs, load profiles, date and time errors that can cause value in the past or future by the configured interval, faults in defined ratios and etc.
VEE also can help identify faults in the network and meters, resulting in great missing values reduction and providing reliable data to the customers.
Intuitive user interface
The operation education costs are of highest resource wastes that many companies endure. Also operating with multiple isolated systems and databases increases the education costs of employees and more than that, the rate of human errors leading to not reliable data thus reducing the business value. This normally increase when migrating to a new system.
Having an intuitive user interface that is designed by years of experience in the field and study over user experiences, reduces the costs of education by a great measure. An intuitive user interface provides a user friendly environment that user performs all business related processes without need to be educated. The only education needed for the employees will be the business itself.
Having a comprehensive software also generates the need for a set of servers to be installed and maintained on. There are customers with certain degree of security guidelines which are obligated to purchase and maintain a local datacenter and install the MDM software on that configuration. On the other hand there customers which do not wish to purchase and setup such costly datacenters. There are many reasons that convinces customers not to setup a datacenter locally, such as setup and maintenance costs, limited number of metering points, no hardware upgrade needed when number of metering points grow, workplace availability over the internet making it possible to work from anywhere, not needing to upgrade to newer versions provided by developer, and etc.
Modam is designed to be installed both on-site and non-site, providing customers with variety of choices in utilizing it to their benefit, as it diverts the implementation costs towards business growth.
Designing and developing a software in modular structure is crucial for large-scale software. It reduces developing and support time, enabling software developing companies to provide better and efficient solutions faster, giving customers the service they need in much shorter time resulting in business value growth. This structure also enables rare bugs to be fixed just by altering a certain part of the software. This makes changes and upgrades much more reliable for customers as there are many bad structured software which by each upgrade cause many problems for users, thus reducing productivity and causing great financial losses. Modam utilizes modular design principles which makes it a reliable, fast and powerful software made to provide benefit and business value to the customers.
