Two More Smartgrid-Related Patents

EDSA Power Analytics recently received two smartgrid-related patents:

  • 7,729,808  System for comparing real-time data and modeling engine data to predict arc flash events; and
  • 7,693,608  Systems and methods for alarm filtering and management within a real-time data acquisition and monitoring environment 

Claim 1 of the '808 patent recites:

1.  A system for making real-time predictions about an arc flash event on an electrical system, comprising:

  • a data acquisition component communicatively connected to a sensor configured to acquire real-time data output from the electrical system;
  • an analytics server communicatively connected to the data acquisition component, comprising, a virtual system modeling engine configured to generate predicted data output for the electrical system utilizing a virtual system model of the electrical system, an analytics engine configured to monitor the real-time data output and the predicted data output of the electrical system, the analytics engine further configured to initiate a calibration and synchronization operation to update the virtual system model when a difference between the real-time data output and the predicted data output exceeds a threshold, a decision engine configured to compare the real-time data output against the predicted data output to filter out and interpret indicia of electrical system health and performance; and
  • an arc flash simulation engine configured to utilize the virtual system model to forecast an aspect of the arc flash event; and a client terminal communicatively connected to the analytics server and configured to communicate the forecasted aspect.

 Claim 1 of the '608 patent recites:

1. A system for filtering and interpreting real-time sensory data from an electrical system, comprising:

  • a data acquisition component communicatively connected to a sensor configured to acquire real-time data output from the electrical system;
  • a power analytics server communicatively connected to the data acquisition components, comprising, a virtual system modeling engine configured to generate predicted data output for the electrical system utilizing a virtual system model of the electrical system, an analytics engine configured to monitor the real-time data output and the predicted data output of the electrical system, the analytics engine further configured to initiate a calibration and synchronization operation to update the virtual system model when a difference between the real-time data output and the predicted data output exceeds a threshold, and a decision engine configured to compare the real-time data output against the predicted data output to filter out and interpret indicia of electrical system health and performance; and
  • a client terminal communicatively connected to the power analytics server and configured to display the filtered and interpreted indicia.
