    Challenge

    In recent years, Brazil has experienced robust economic development, evolving energy systems, growth of renewable and distributed energy generation methods, and uncertainties that are characteristic of an aging power grid infrastructure.

    Brazilian Electric Sector (BES) provides electric service to 98 percent of the country’s population. The company believed that deployment and utilization of a modernized infrastructure was critical in order to meet the growing demand for high-quality service.

    High on their list of power grid priorities was investment in smart technologies that would help them meet the growing demand, reduce non-technical losses, provide redundancy, and capture real-time operating data.

    Deployment of management systems, along with supervision and control systems that are geographically distributed nationwide – plus fully integrated and redundant – was essential to achieving the goal of a modernized electric infrastructure.
