S&C Electric Co. and Alstom Grid announce their alliance to jointly develop smart grid solutions that demonstrate enhanced interoperability and next-generation real-time self-healing networks between the Alstom Grid's e-terradistribution Integrated Distribution Management System (IDMS) and S&C's IntelliTEAM SGÔ Automatic Restoration System.

Scalability and effective data management are essential to the implementation of smart grid deployments. A fully integrated system dramatically improves the ease of managing large-scale installations and significantly enhances distribution grid reliability and efficiency while minimizing the duration of customer outages. The sophisticated solution also will enable seamless integration of distributed energy resources — wind, solar, electric-vehicle charging and energy storage — across the distribution grid.
