Smallworld Electric Office
The Smallworld Electric Office™ suite for electric transmission and distribution is a comprehensive platform that provides geospatial support for the electric utility asset management lifecycle, from planning and design through replacement and refurbishing. Built on the proven network technology of GE Energy’s Smallworld™ Product Suite, the Smallworld Electric Office™ suite contains the underlying data models, industry applications, and productivity tools required to support the essential utility operations.
The Smallworld Electric Office suite will lower the total cost of ownership for customers through standard installation, minimal customization, streamlined maintenance, and planned upgrades while improving operational efficiency.
By leveraging the Smallworld Electric Office platform, we deliver integrated geospatial solutions that automate key business processes in the utility. Direct product integration and interfaces to other key systems give Distribution System Operators the ability to support critical utility workflows such as:
- Geospatial network updates for work requests that do not require graphical update
- Complex work orders requiring graphical design and multiple network updates
- Work initiated internally through planning and reliability studies and system analysis
- Network updates resulting from repairs to restore outages identified by the outage management system
Power Flow and Short Circuit Calculations
Interfaces for Outage Management and SCADA Integration
European Specifics and Localization
The system has been customised and configured to better suit the characteristics of the European electricity distribution and transmission. This includes a major redesign of the styles used on the map and in the internal schematics of the substations and cabinets
Technical Conditions for Service Provisioning
by integration with a workflow system, it is possible to plan a new customer connection on the map in terms of the optimum routing and transformer capacity analysis.
planning investment activities in detail, such as network extension or reconstruction & new customer connections.
similarly to Network Inspection, registration of periodic load measurements on LV feeders in substations can be carried out, stored in the database and then analysed.
Network Inspection Support
support for network maintenance activities such as outage reporting and handling, technical inspections, maintenance work orders.
