"To manage power successfully, it's critical to be able to predict events - to know what the state of the power load is at any point in time, in order to see trouble coming before it hits," says SATECH CEO Daniel Branover.
...According to Daniel Branover, the CEO of the Israeli-based company SATEC, the problem is that utilities are simply not in control of energy distribution.
According to Branover
, ExpertPower collects information from everywhere in the system, and by making it accessible through 2-way communication over the Internet, enables the full range of management capabilities, from Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) to load control to fault detection.And, because the information provided covers the entire system, control can be pinpointed to exactly the places where it is needed.
ExpertPower has been deployed in several test sites both in Israel and the US, with positive results.
"Had ExpertPower been deployed by the utilities on the East Coast, the source of the problem would have been identified and action could have been taken to avoid the crisis," says Branover
