‘Operator in a Box’ capabilities are built into our intelligent applications – working closely with our customers’ operations teams in the field, we have automated their procedures and sequences into expert systems.
Operators can make split-second decisions with the right data in hand, presented in a way that makes sense. Congruence.IQ is architected to receive and perform updates without rebooting, maximizing uptime.
GATEWAY performs data acquisition and concentration in a protocol- and data-model neutral fashion (providing protocol and data-model conversion where necessary). GATEWAY-enabled computing nodes can be located anywhere they are needed, with each node caching data and intelligently managing communications bandwidth to maximize throughput and speed decision making for real-time control.
The Congruence.IQ Substation Gateway from Congruitive enables utilities and large energy users to collect, monitor, display, analyze, and archive data in a modern substation. The C.IQ Substation Gateway performs both traditional and advanced substation and distribution automation functions, providing a cost-effective, robust substation management solution.
Congruence.IQ SCADA streamlines the management of utility control centers and substations with a full range of data collection and concentration, monitoring, user interfaces, annunciation, alarming, communication management and historian functions in one platform.
Our SCADA’s distributed architecture – supporting multiple front-end processors, servers, and remote or local operator workstations – means it operates independently of communications network and data center size.
Providing a common data layer for all utility operations, CONNECT creates a private and secure point of access all high-level systems can use to obtain the data they and their operators need. CONNECT is data protocol agnostic, acquiring and aggregating data from the thousands of intelligent devices in modern utility real-time systems so it can be transported directly to high-level systems for presentation, advanced analysis, and control.
CONNECT addresses the serious performance, cost, and security drawbacks inherent in the structure of many utility systems where data resides in“silos” and requires complex communications networks and restricts the timely availability of critical information. Instead, with CONNECT, any data is available directly to any application or management dashboard.
Utilities today acquire, store, and analyze a tremendous amount of data from every part of the grid, along with data from the ever-increasing number of intelligent devices in substations and at the grid edge. As that data volume grows, so does its value in identifying trends and assessing the status of operations — if you can see the whole picture.
Making that real-time and historic data available in forms that can be displayed readily and are easily consumed, our VISUALIZE product allows utility personnel to see trends and key operational details in clear and instantly actionable ways.
MITIGATE enables utilities to manage their distribution systems and assets effectively, safely, and rapidly at times of high risk of wildfire or in the face of severe weather events or natural disaster. MITIGATE reads and analyzes environmental and weather data automatically, and then implements appropriate mitigation strategies, replacing time-consuming manual review of reports and potential errors in script execution by operators.
MITIGATE proactively executes required protocols to alter feeder equipment parameters, and enables utilities to maintain public safety while also averting damage to system assets,returning the system to normal operation once the danger has abated. MITIGATE provides fully logged and traceable action reporting, with detailed information on conditions and control actions.
Congruence.IQ RESTORE enables utilities to respond rapidly to a fault in a line section and minimize the effect of the resulting outage on customers. RESTORE acquires and analyzes fault data at the substation or feeder level, and then automatically isolates the affected line sections, rerouting working sections to restore power to as many customers as possible within seconds of an outage. RESTORE brings those customers back online rapidly, safely, and securely – enabling utilities to boost efficiency, cut costs, reduce the duration of outages, and meet regulatory demands around interruption metrics.
Congruence.IQ STABILIZE provides Volt/VAR control that enables utilities to automatically maintain end of line voltage at a prescribed minimum while simultaneously reducing voltage at the substation level as much as possible.
STABILIZE addresses the issues of increased generation and transmission costs at peak load times, as well as the challenges of maintaining feeder stability as increasing levels of DERs are connected to feeders. STABILIZE enables utilities to be more efficient, reduce technical power losses, increase customer satisfaction and reduce their own costs.
Congruene.IQ CONTROL provides utilities and large energy producers with the technology they need to automate the control of renewable energy generation sources as well as utility-scale energy storage systems.
CONTROL allows these resources to be managed and integrated effectively into the grid, with the ability to scale across a full range of needs, from the aggregation of storage resources to operating microgrids and control center applications.
