Grid management software

Grid management software refers to a suite of tools designed to monitor, control, and optimize the performance of electrical grids. It allows utilities and energy providers to control and optimize energy distribution using large-scale information systems with high levels of security. Corinex's grid management software, GridValue, provides provisioning, management, and near real-time visibility across utility customers’ electric infrastructure.  

What Is Grid management software

Reliable and efficient energy management for the electric grid

As global decarbonization initiatives accelerate, legislators and utilities are pushing forward the energy digitalization and smartification of the existing electric grid. This newly digitalized grid is enabling prosumers to generate and supply electricity from renewable sources, thereby changing the way electricity is distributed and generated. This new decentralized energy grid creates an urgent need for high levels of network visibility within the energy management system so that all energy-producing assets can operate reliably and efficiently.

As part of our vertically integrated grid modernization solution, Corinex's grid management software, GridValue, provides nationwide provisioning and secure connectivity to millions of IoT devices, allowing near real-time visibility, data aggregation, and processing of energy network information. The modular architecture of the system can be tailored to meet the deployment needs of each energy distributor, allowing a smooth migration path for future expansions.

State-of-the-art energy management system
Flexible, scalable, and secure energy management system

Flexible, Scalable, Secure

Flexible and scalable architecture
with enhanced agility and security

With the full support of the devices and backward compatibility with the first-generation UPA broadband over power lines devices, Corinex grid management software, GridValue, is designed with a horizontally scalable architecture to provide unmatched core performance. It uses microservices architectural approaches based on Docker Enterprise container platform. This architecture enables the rapid, frequent, and reliable delivery of the application with enhanced agility, serviceability, and security.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Understanding your energy data with smart mapping and visualization

Data visualization is one of the most important elements of energy management because it directly impacts the audience’s interpretation of the energy management data collected. Corinex grid management software is integrated with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) which creates maps with compelling data visualizations, enabling utility customers to discover out-of-box analytics, uncover never-before-seen patterns, and reveal unnoticed trends in the grid management software.

Multiple Data Storage Redundancies

Well-managed data redundancy to protect your energy data

Data redundancy is valuable when used for backup or data security. Corinex grid management software features multiple data storage redundancies to create data backups, eliminate single points of failure, ensure data accuracy in the management system, and increase data availability and data security.

Edge Computing and artificial intelligence

It is more than just an grid management software

Corinex GridValue is the first grid management software with enough computational power for utilities to apply edge computing and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities for large-scale smart grid deployments. In a highly distributed grid, edge computing and artificial intelligence can not only enable utilities to better manage distributed energy resources in the electric grid, but maximize their efficiency and deliver cost-effective, reliable, and clear power.
