Summary:

The Atlantic City Electric Company’s (ACE) SGIG Distribution Automation project is deploying distribution automation assets, direct load control devices, and a wireless communications network. Direct load control devices are being offered that provide financial incentives for customers for allowing ACE to cycle air-conditioners or control thermostats during peak periods. Distribution automation devices, which include substation smart devices, equipment condition monitors, and automated feeder reclosers/switches and capacitors, improve the reliability and power quality of the distribution system. These systems also reduce operation and maintenance costs as well as distribution line losses.
