An advanced distribution management system is a software platform that facilitates the full suite of optimization and distribution management. It operates automate outage restoration and optimizes the performance of the distribution grid. Various applications of advanced distribution management system include fault location, isolation, and service restoration (FLISR), planning function, volt/VAR control, and advanced forecasting using supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. Advanced distribution management systems have emerged as a major smart grid technology innovation with the potential to combine utility distribution IT systems into a single, more efficiently managed platform. These systems function for electric utilities for numerous applications such as fault location, restoration, and isolation, conservation through voltage reduction, volt/volt-ampere reactive optimization, support for microgrids and electric vehicles and peak demand management.
The advanced distributed management system market has been experiencing massive growth in the recent years due to rapid development in smart grid technology and rise in global energy demand.
