BPL Global® (BPLG) provides software solutions and services to electric utilities and their customers enabling an intelligent grid to more efficiently manage demand, integrate distributed energy resources, improve service reliability, and optimize cost and capital productivity. Our solutions are designed for interoperability with other systems and equipment deployed by a utility. Software upgrades allow for straightforward compliance with evolved standards and security requirements, avoiding stranded investments.
Aging electrical infrastructure and increasing demand are making reliability and operational productivity a priority for many electric utilities around the world. Substation monitoring and automation are vital components of utility initiatives to address these issues. BPLG has award winning technology for on-line transformer monitoring, helping utilities to avoid dangerous and costly failures while optimizing maintenance schedules and extending the life of these assets. We provide substation automation systems that improve electric service reliability while reducing operations and maintenance costs.
Distributed Energy Resource Solutions
Integrated Distributed Energy Resource Management (Integrated DER)is a control system providing electric utilities with the capability to maximize asset utilization and optimize management of the distribution network. For the first time, electric utilities can coordinate management of distributed generation, renewables, energy storage, and load on a common platform. Our software solution allows dynamic, real-time management based on the changing conditions of the distribution network. Utilities can efficiently add and manage a variety of renewable and storage resources on the grid and actively coordinate customer load, generation and storage resources.
Distribution Grid Solutions
BPLG provides monitoring and communications solutions for improved efficiency and reliability of the distribution grid. Our Rapid Fault Locator solution detects and reports line faults on distribution feeders, and provides continuous monitoring of the line conditions avoiding faults and reducing the duration of outages. An intelligent grid depends on a secure and robust communications platform to manage the significant increase in data capacity required to support two-way communications between a centralized software platform for monitoring and control and any smart devices distributed throughout the electrical network. BPLG offers communications solutions from basic network monitoring, to robust smart grid communications, to last-mile broadband services to consumers and businesses.
Customer Premises Solutions
To optimize energy delivery, leading utilities are integrating with energy and load resources on the customer’s side of the meter. Demand management and efficiency solutions are vital short-term tools to help utilities bridge the growing gap between supply and demand. Our demand management solutions provide real-time direct load control with precision and verification. They are designed for residential, commercial and industrial electric customers. We also offer comprehensive building monitoring, control and management solution that gives property managers the ability to proactively manage energy and water consumption in buildings. Our customer portal enables active customer participation in energy management. Solutions for prepaid account management and non-technical loss prevention provide utilities with new tools to improve operational performance. Customer premise solutions are some of the most valuable investments a utility can make – a win-win for utilities and their customers.
