DEWA’s R&D Centre tests smart grid analytics project



    Dubai Electricity and Water Authority's (DEWA) R&D Centre is testing its Smart Grid Analytics project, which uses voltage and current measurements from primary substations to detect and forecast disturbances on the Medium Voltage (MV).

    The testing helps DEWA with necessary maintenance proactively to ensure the continuity of supplies according to the highest standards of reliability, resilience, accountability, and availability, a statement said.

    The R&D Centre will also evaluate the 'dInsight' Analytics Platform, which provides powerful and comprehensive visual analytics of the grid, loads and supplies.

    Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, highlighted the essential role DEWA's R&D Centre plays in developing sustainable, effective and proactive systems and solutions to the challenges facing the various divisions of DEWA. This ensures continuous improvement of DEWA's core operations by relying on research and innovation, consolidating DEWA's global leadership and achieving its vision to become a globally leading sustainable, innovative corporation.

    "The R&D Centre at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park supports DEWA's efforts to anticipate the future, develop long-term proactive plans to keep pace with the Fourth Industrial Revolution and innovate disruptive technologies to provide world-class services that enhance the quality of life in Dubai. The Centre also supports the national plans and strategies including the 'Dubai 10X' initiative, which aids Dubai's progress into leading the future by making it ten years ahead of other cities," added Al Tayer.
