Abstract

This article uses a Geographical Information System (GIS) platform to create an on-line monitoring system in order to display real-time operational data measured at different points of an electricity network. The network with all its assets will be displayed on a geographical map. This provides the electricity utilities with a tool for monitoring, control, asset management, and demand side management in a smart grid. The system is tested as a pilot using the low-voltage network at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU), Oman. The article illustrates the pilot implementation of an enterprise GIS for application in smart grids, where the technical procedures of development phases of GIS data model and GIS web application have been described in details. The developed system produces spatial representation of the electricity network and its assets including renewable energy systems with their operational data on the map of existing electrical distribution network. It provides the utilities the ability to monitor the system components and their operation performance in real time with their location on a map.
