Machine learning - WG 2021-4



Machine learning, AI, AR and Advanced Analytics are some of the most frequently used buzzwords associated with Advanced Distribution Management Solutions (ADMSs). These digital technologies will make an important contribution to address the several challenges that DSOs will face, such as the integration of renewable energies, decarbonization, e-mobility, skill renewal, safety, customer relation, asset optimization, equipment maintenance, etc. 

DSO road to digital is also a reality to foster
1. Enhanced observability using New Generation of IoT (NG-IoT);
2. Distributed smart protection & control;
3. Condition & Risk Based Maintenance using:
 Analytical models, based on asset data, to predict the behaviour of assets over time and support optimal maintenance process decisions;
 Digital Twin in asset Lifecycle, which allows creation of digital replica of technical asset to pave the way to data acquisition and their conversion into knowledge.
4. Network’s operation and maintenance efficiency (e.g., Smart Alarms, WFM, NG-IoT).
5. Network’s smart management functions (e.g., Smart Alarms, ADMS, EMI, etc.);


The Working Group will cover:
 Augmented Reality (AR) solutions identification to improve field operation (MWM - Mobile Workforce Management e WFM - Work Force Management) and training solutions to increase network’s operation and maintenance efficiency;
 Assess Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Advanced Analytics to improve:
   - network management functions;
   - asset condition monitoring and health evaluation;
   - adopting predictive models in terms of modernization (replacement) and maintenance strategies, assuming an ownership strategy more focused on reliability, cost and risk;
   - predictive models, assessing which are the best methodologies and sensing requirements;
 To Identify asset Digital Twin performance with real impact on asset management, using Machine learning, AI, AR and Advanced Analytics
 Benchmarking of new and existing demonstration projects using Machine learning, AI, AR and Advanced Analytics
