Digital Engineering is helping to shape the Grid of the Future!

Digital Engineering are proud to have been accepted to present at the “Grid of the Future” symposium in Cleveland, Ohio on the 23rd and 24th of October.

We will be presenting our innovative work which has allowed the National Grid to double their detection rate of overhead line defects, providing them with a step change in their asset management strategy and reducing their costs by £20,000,000 over the next RIIO governance period.

Digital Engineering have used the latest weather simulation models, data analytics and real overhead line defects data to produce a model that predicts asset failures due to wind, ice and corrosion.

A case study of this work has been published by the National Grid and can be found on page 11 of their Annual Innovation Report. 

Our technical manager, Filiberto Braglia, will be presenting a paper on the project and discussing recent improvements. Our Managing Director, Rob Sunderland, will also be available to speak to interested parties about their own requirements.

The Ohio symposium will showcase the latest work in Generation, Transmission and System Operations, Distribution, Smart Grid and Innovation.

We would love to meet you there. If you’re attending and would like to know more about our work, let us know by emailing, or go to our website to find out more about what we do.
