Progress Energy has chosen to integrate a new, fully redundant Distribution SCADA/DMS system from Telvent’s Smart Grid Solution Suite within Progress Energy Carolinas (PEC) enterprise.
The implementation will support the goals of Progress Energy’s Distribution System Demand Response (DSDR) project, designed to enable PEC to reduce peak demand and maintain consistent voltage to all customers served by the feeder, without increasing peak generation capacity (TLVT Press).
PEC Executives see this project as something that will change the industry. They concluded that DMS technology provides the key driver for their business case.
Meetings between Telvent and PEC were held in Novi Sad in Telvent DMS headquarters from May 25, 2009, until May 29, 2009.
Goals of these meetings were to discuss and clarify all necessary power engineering and IT issues between Telvent engineers and PEC.
