Distributed energy analytics software leader, GridUnity, is partnering with Eaton’s CYME International T&D to transform the speed and accuracy of complex utility engineering calculations

SAN ANTONIO, TX, @DistribuTECH, 23 Jan 2018 – GridUnity, a pioneer in distributed energy analytics software-as-a-service, is announcing a new platform integration partnership with Eaton’s CYME International T&D.

The proliferation of distributed generation is changing the relationship between utilities and their customers, raising the bar on expectations of service responsiveness and information transparency. To meet these demands, utilities are turning toward more dynamic cloud-based grid analytics software to transform their time-consuming and complex engineering processes. GridUnity enables utilities to automate and connect resources, infrastructure and people across the distributed energy ecosystem.

GridUnity’s elastic cloud computing environment, machine learning algorithms and flexible business processes offers utilities the computational scalability and reliability they need to standardize the new power flow analysis methods required of grid evolution. With CYME seamlessly integrated into the GridUnity platform, utilities can extend the value of their CYME software and unlock additional data insights to continuously improve their network data models. When combined with GridUnity’s data visualization capabilities, the engineering automation services allow scarce utility engineering resources to focus their efforts on potential distribution grid exceptions and suitable mitigation options that ensure future system reliability.

“GridUnity continues to set new standards for innovation in distributed energy analytics software” says Daniel Desrosiers, General Manager, Eaton’s CYME International T&D. “This integration presents innovative solutions to increasingly complex distribution grid planning and operations challenges by leveraging the quality and flexibility of our power system analysis software. We look forward to sharing the benefits of the CYME and GridUnity partnership with utilities across the country”.

“CYME has become one of the industry leaders in power flow software.” said Brian Fitzsimons, CEO, GridUnity. “In an industry first, we can now automate many of these engineering calculations in the cloud. We have received a lot of attention for this integration because bringing the rigor, scale, speed and artificial intelligence of an elastic cloud computing platform to power engineering analysis and planning presents significant advantages for utilities that are transforming their business model.”
