In Batalha municipality, the E-Balance project has as objective to demonstrate functionalities related with the Distribution system operator in a more active perspective on the management and supervision of the electrical distribution grid. Between the advantages of such demo site, we highlight the 3 principal functionalities to be achieved at Batalha:
Deployment of the LV Grid Management Unit, LV Sensors and Smart Meters at one of the Batalha demonstrator sites
The deployment of the LV Grid Management Unit – LVGMU –, RF Mesh gateway, LV Sensors and Smart Meters – also known as EDP Boxes – was successfully performed at Secondary Substation PT011’s feeder no. 2 and public lighting circuit.
The secondary substation PT011 feeder no. 2 was subject to the deployment of eight 3-phase LV sensors also equipped with another sensor for the public lighting circuit, by INOV. Those sensors are marked in the map bellow with a green circle. Moreover, four 3-phase smart meters, by Efacec, were also deployed. Those smart meters are marked bellow with a green square. The secondary substation was equipped also with a Distribution Transformer Controller – DTC – by Efacec, as the main controller playing the role of the LVGMU, as well as with a RF Mesh gateway.
