世界各地的电力运营商都在努力提高其系统的可靠性和网络弹性。这包括管理和监控意大利电网的全球电力公司 Enel。该电网： • 服务于 3100 万客户 • 净装机容量超过 31 吉瓦 • 包括 500 多个发电厂，包括水电、热电和风电 • 由 Enel 24/7/365 管理和监控 • 由Terna 是意大利输电系统运营商 (TSO) Enel，负责电网底层 ICS 和工业网络的可用性。它还管理与 TSO 连接的区域控制中心和互连中心。 TSO 管理流向电网的能量流以及控制和远程调节发电厂的发电量，根据需要增加和减少发电量。 Enel 和 TSO 之间复杂的交互和合作系统具有强大的安全隐患以及运营和业务挑战。
通过合作，Enel 和 Nozomi Networks 首先在一个区域控制中心部署了 SCADAguardian。经过广泛的测试和微调后，部署开始全面推出。作为第一步，SCADAguardian 探测器安装在所有区域控制中心，以监控意大利的运营网络。它们还安装在互连中心以监控 Enel 和 TSO 之间的连接。接下来安装了 SCADAguardian 中央管理控制台，以便从中央控制室操作、监控和更新探测器。最后，引入了 SCADAguardian 便携式 P500 设备来监控和分析需要调查和故障排除的部分。

Hydro One Leads the Way In Smart Meter Development
In 2010, Ontario’s energy board mandated that time-of-use (TOU) pricing for consumers be available for all consumers on a regulated price plan. To meet this requirement, Hydro One needed to quickly deploy a smart meter and intelligent communications network solution to meet the provincial government’s requirement at a low cost. The network needed to cover Hydro One’s expansive service territory, which has a land mass twice the size of Texas, and its customers live in a mix of urban, rural, and remote areas, some places only accessible by air, rail, boat or snowmobile. Most importantly, the network needed to enable future enterprise-wide business efficiencies, modernization of distribution infrastructure and enhanced customer service. To meet these needs, Hydro One conceptualized an end-to-end solution leveraging open standards and Internet Protocols (IP) at all communication levels. The utility drew upon industry leaders like Trilliant to realize this vision.
Selling more with Whirlpool
Whirlpool wanted to add connectivity to appliances and transform the company's relationship with customers. Traditionally, Whirlpool interaction with customers was limited to purchases made once every ten years. Connected washer and dryers provide exciting new features like remote management of start times and inter-machine communication.
SAS® Analytics for IoT: Smart Grid
Companies face falling revenues, rising infrastructure costs, and increasing risk of outages caused by inconsistent energy production from renewable sources. Less money is coming in as more people and organizations take steps to curb their energy use. Utilities are paying more to maintain and build infrastructure due to increasing complexity, resulting from the rising number of intermittent and variable renewable energy sources connected in the distribution grid.
IoT based Energy Quality Availability Monitoring Solution
There were several challenges faced:Since this data would be in the public domain, accuracy and authenticity of this data were of paramount importance. It should be able to withstand scrutiny.It is challenging to build an appliance that can withstand a wide range of voltage fluctuations from as low at 90v to as high as 320v. Since the device would be installed in remote locations, its resilience was of paramount importance.The device would have to deal with poor network coverage and have the ability to store and re-transmit data if networks were not available, which is often the case in rural India. The device could store up to 30 days of data.The platform that deals with the data should be readily available and highly reliable and never lose a packet of data.
IIC Communication & Control Testbed for Microgrid Applications
Traditional central-station power grids operate on 15-minute output update cycles that force operators to over-generate power to compensate for potential blackouts or unexpected new power demands on the grid. Additionally, they cannot efficiently utilize the distributed, dynamic generation of renewable power sources such as solar panels or wind turbines.
