Tantalus Delivers Integrated Utility IoT-Based Solutions in Smart Street Lighting & Grid Optimization

Tantalus Systems is delivering advanced smart grid applications such as Smart Street Lighting and enhancing Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) and Voltage Optimization (VO) for Distribution Grid Optimization over its distributed intelligence platform – TUNet®. TUNet is anchored by a network of intelligent edge computing modules integrated into a broad range of smart grid end points such as meters and Distribution Automation (DA) devices. Each TUNet module uses a Linux-based computing platform to collect and analyze data, make intelligent decisions and report by exception to the utility’s central servers. TUNet’s efficient use of its Utility IoT architecture enables the utility to leverage its smart grid network more effectively while ensuring that operators receive precisely the right data at the right time and from the right location to make more informed decisions. Another smart grid solution now deployed throughout Tantalus’ customer base is Distribution Grid Optimization. Applications such as CVR and VO are enhanced by leveraging TUNet’s distributed intelligence and communications for improved performance. Tantalus delivers this by combining its Closed Loop Voltage Reduction (CLVR™) feature with its TUNet DA Bridge Modem, providing a near real-time meter voltage monitoring and alerting application with a modem that supports DNP3 data delivery across TUNet. This extends visibility and control from the SCADA system to end-of-line DA devices such as capacitor bank controllers and voltage regulators while capturing FCI data and alerts in near real-time. This combined functionality helps utilities maximize value from their TUNet AMI network investments.
