The City of Anaheim Public Utilities Department's smart grid project involved a limited deployment of advanced metering infrastructure and an expansion of distribution automation capabilities. Distribution automation devices included circuit switches, remote fault indicators, and smart relays. In addition, an enterprise service bus was installed to provide the interface to the meter data management system, customer information system, and the outage management system.
