Westar Energy’s SmartStar Lawrence project deploys advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), meter data management system (MDMS), and distribution automation equipment. AMI and MDMS systems are expected to reduce operating costs, improve reliability, and enhance customer services by improving enterprise systems, including billing, outage management, and load research. The AMI and MDMS also support a customer Web portal that provides energy usage and billing information for customers. Distribution automation assets include automated reclosers, capacitor automation equipment, and fault indicators to speed up restoration of service following outages and reduce energy losses through improved management of circuit voltages.
