Grid optimization management

The intelligent way to manage smart grids: Better, more flexible grid planning and early error detection is within easy reach.

Turning power distribution networks into smart grids

The age of the prosumer is dawning: consumers are becoming producers, feeding their own, locally generated power into medium and low-voltage networks. This poses new challenges for the power grid. Managing distributed energy resources calls for flexible and intelligent software solutions: power distribution networks must evolve into smart grids.

As it stands, low-voltage network operators can only react, their control centers responding to events that have already occurred. A smart grid, however, requires a more proactive and dynamic approach, which is exactly what grid optimization management delivers. Installed in the customer’s own data center and connected to all available networks, this software solution helps distribution network operators simplify grid planning and detect faults in good time.

Benefits at a glance

  • Data errors are easier to detect and pinpoint
  • Asymmetric loads can be identified
  • Grid capacity is used more efficiently

Benefits of grid optimization management


Detailed picture of low-voltage networks

Provides distribution network operators with an accurate view of grid status and also enables identification of asymmetric loads between phases or voltage drops between network nodes.


Monitoring and analysis of power quality

Thanks to grid optimization management, distribution network operators can identify any problems with power quality before these impact the customer. They can then localize and resolve any issues with system voltage without the need to carry out actual field measurements.

Determining concrete measures

Comprehensive monitoring of grid status enables distribution network operators to take targeted action. This includes minimizing nontechnical losses together with attendant losses in revenue.


Incorporating green power

Grid optimization management provides the tools needed to incorporate green power into the current grid capacity. Distribution network operators are able to monitor grid status and balance power generation against actual power consumption. In addition, operators can draw up schedules for individual energy resources.

Controlled expansion of grid capacity

Grid optimization management ensures that network capacity is used more efficiently. Distribution network operators can therefore plan expansions to grid capacity on the basis of actual requirements.

Our grid optimization management solution

The grid optimization management solution from Bosch.IO uses precision sensor systems to provide an accurate picture of the current status of low-voltage networks. This enables distribution network operators to undertake targeted action to increase grid performance and stability.

The grid optimization management solution combines data from grid sensors, such as smart meters, with positional information, thereby alerting distribution network operators to potential grid issues that would once have remained undetected.

The solution also comes with a range of interfaces, meaning it can be combined with existing head-end systems, geographic information systems (GIS), and meter data management systems.
