More renewable energy in the grids lead to more diverse electricity flows. To monitor these flows, DNO and DSO companies are installing more sensors to keep track of the electricity (flows). Problems which may occur with a lot of decentralized renewable energy are power quality issues and congestion for example.
The open smart grid platform can be a part of the IT/OT solutions for distribution automation. The Open Smart Grid Platform distribution automation domain will be an addition to existing SCADA systems to get other data witch are not available via classic SCADA systems. Think of switching times, high frequency measurements (comtrade files) etc.
Technical information can be found in the documentation.
