ABB Talks Utility

Stop by our booth to request a demo!


ABB will be presenting and demonstrating Volt/VAr management with integrated monitoring and control of DER, regulating transformers and capacitors to maintain voltage reliability as well as improve efficiency of the power delivery. 

ABB has one of the widest portfolios of solar inverters ranging from small micro-inverters and three-phase string inverters up to megawatt-sized central inverters. This extensive range of solar inverters is suitable for the smallest residential photovoltaic (PV) systems right up to multi-megawatt PV power plants. ABB’s cloud based solution monitors over 100,000 consumer inverters around the world.

The significant growth of solar inverters used by utilities, businesses and residential consumers on distribution feeder networks has created significant challenges for utility operations. Among them is the challenge of reducing losses and demand as well as maintaining consumer voltages within standards with the intermittency of solar distributed generation. The solutions to these challenges will become even more complex with the implementation of autonomous smart inverters and remotely controllable inverters being deployed on distribution networks. 

Join us in Booth #1301 where we will be holding special utility-focused discussions and presentations. 



Tuesday, January 31


12:00 - 12:15 p.m.             Distributed Energy Resources integration: The challenges and opportunities of digitalization

Investors’ eyes are turning to the distribution grid. Investments in distribution projects are expected to be in the billions of dollars, particularly for distributed generation, PV, energy storage and microgrids. While there is great benefit anticipated, there are a number of technical, operational and economic challenges that can hinder success. Join us to learn why a new utility business model is emerging that will enable greater benefits for the new digital economy.


12:30 - 12:45 p.m.             Managing an outage impacted by DER

What type of software does it take to manage an outage impacted by distributed energy resources? ABB ‘s experts will review a case in point, considering the outage location, crew dispatch, field mobile response, restoration construction requirements, distribution operators and the role of analytics that comes to play in the digital age. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from ABB’s experience in ADMS, DERMS, mobile, asset management and analytics software.


5:15 - 5:30 p.m.                  Distribution markets - What's going on? 

Wholesale markets have been around for a long time. However, there has been increasing interest in the creation of distribution markets (i.e. how they can assist in the drive for DER and a low-carbon future). Hear from ABB’s thought leadership experts as they provide an overview on what’s driving interest in distribution markets worldwide. The briefing will review some upcoming projects that highlight possible new market structures and the systems required for running them. 


5:45 - 6:00 p.m.                  A smarter path to prescriptive intelligence for improved asset performance 

ABB’s asset performance management solution, Asset Health Center (AHC) is a purpose built prescriptive analytics platform that combines IT and OT to deliver continuous asset health knowledge and risk-mitigation actions. ABB Asset Health Center goes beyond Machine Learning, using an artificial intelligence, knowledge-based approach to asset performance management. Come see how this expert system delivers knowledge-based decision support to optimize asset maintenance and replacement.



Wednesday, February 1



12:00 - 12:15 p.m.              DERMS

Learn about ABB’s DERMS solution through an interactive demonstration, which includes live data streamed from and control of a smart inverter. The complete overview covers how the solution fits into the traditional OMS/DMS/SCADA architecture and different types of customer who would benefit from DERMS
