Whether from drone cameras or smart meters, field data is rich with opportunity for maintenance improvements. Utilities can monitor assets at scale by feeding cloud-based field data into machine learning algorithms.
Machine learning can analyze field data at scale to identify patterns and outliers, proactively indicating when assets are near failure or at risk of environmental damage. When historical environmental data is added, analytics tools can also predict how assets will respond to future events like fires, floods, storms, and earthquakes.
When outages occur, artificial intelligence can instantaneously reroute electricity, shortening the time customers are without power. Machine learning can also help prioritize incident response crews so that they handle outages more efficiently. With real-time data and intelligent predictions easily available, you can be proactive about asset management—before outages and/or damage occur. Replacing equipment, reducing nearby risks, or even temporarily turning off power can keep customers safe.
