Development of a control and management system for smart LV distribution networks
The goal of the SCADA BT project was to develop a new control and supervision system specifically for smart grids at low voltage level. The system is comprised of several advanced processing modules, consumption and active production control algorithms, LV fault management, intelligent alarm processing and also interface to other utility corporate systems. This project was led individually by Efacec Automation, and supported by a Portuguese Distribution Company (EDP Distribuição) and an R&D Institution (INESC TEC, called INESC Porto at the time). It was partially sponsored by IAPMEI through a framework that supports research and technological development in Portuguese companies.
