GE demos high-voltage technology and 3-D interactive power system tools for utilities

By Editor


GE, through its GE’s Digital Energy business, is helping global utilities address the concerns associated with aging and inefficient infrastructure that is creating gaps between energy demands and supplies.

The solutions offered by GE’s Digital Energy business include its new and upgraded high-voltage offerings and its transformative 3-D interactive power system tools.

GE’s Digital Energy business is developing and implementing innovative grid modernization technologies. The company is showcasing a number of products and service capabilities at 2014 IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution Conference & Exposition taking place April 14-17 in Chicago.

GE has expanded its transmission and distribution solution set over the past nine months with substantial investments in high-voltage technology offerings, providing customers with the flexibility needed to integrate renewables such as wind, solar, hydro and gas generation.

In addition, GE has developed digital, hands-on displays and tools that transform how the industry learns, explores and interacts with critical power systems components. The solutions feature rich visuals and touch interaction.

The 3-D tools help utility operators better understand their power systems, while also providing valuable insights around how various transmission and distribution line challenges can be addressed and mitigated.

Through these new technologies, customers can limit their risk of outages and reduce costs associated with electrical system downtimes and out-of-date equipment, minimizing utility losses and improving overall grid efficiency, GE said.

“Utilities are not just seeking a solutions provider. They’re seeking a partner to help them meet 21st-century energy challenges, whether it’s improving the reliability and resiliency of their existing electrical distribution infrastructure or replacing aging equipment such as transformers and circuit breakers,” said Bob Turko, general manager, power systems, GE’s Digital Energy business.

“Our new technologies—including our flexible and intelligent high-voltage offerings—enable us to help our customers solve their toughest grid challenges and build a more reliable, efficient grid,” Turko added.

GE’s end-to-end solutions and consultation can help advance and optimize today’s electrical grids, providing superior efficiency and reliability with the latest in transmission and distribution technology.
