A LEADING UTILITY ANALYTICS COMPANY
We deliver Actionable Data and Pragmatic Insights via our cutting edge Software Solutions to Industries Navigating Climate Change and Energy Transition Impacts. Our applications are born out of our deep expertise in data science and modeling and years of collected insights working with utilities and other infrastructure intensive companies.
Our software applications deliver advanced statistical modeling of big data, leveraging both AI and Machine Learning techniques, while still offering user friendly interfaces and easy access to critical insights for employees at all levels within the organization. We help strengthen situational awareness, enable real time asset management, improve reliability, safety, quality, productivity, & response time, and, ultimately, lower costs.
Leading Family of Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics Products
Our most advanced model-driven software, DRˣ, focuses on delivering predictive and prescriptive analytics to enhance investment decisions and planning, reduce O&M, upgrade grid reliability and resiliency, advance storm response, and improve lineman safety.
InfraShield Labs has been working with clients from across the US for more than 5 years to develop, install and enhance the DRˣ platform. DRˣ is a modular based software application that seamlessly integrates data from previously siloed application databases (OMS, GIS, WMS, CYME, SAP, etc.) with various external data sources (e.g., weather forecast, climate, environment, state forestry, municipal, political boundaries, etc.) and applies machine-learning predictive analytics and optimization algorithms to identify opportunities for improved results in operations, investments and prioritization of work/initiatives.
DRˣ Weather Guard© Highlights
Recent client tests have suggested DRˣ can predict with around 70% accuracy which service centers/areas are likely to experience an outage as a result of a particular storm with incoming sustained wind speed and wind gust, wind direction, precipitation, humidity, and lightning forecast data.
- Cut overtime costs, reduce truck rolls and improve storm CAIDI
- Automate damage model simulations
- Generate automatic text and email alerts based on projected outages
- Reduce SAIFI and SAIDI through heuristic learning on historical storm impacts and resiliency analyses
DRˣ EV / DER Prophet© Highlights
Plan at the feeder level with EV count & load added by month
Our model has an R² value (“goodness-of-fit”) of the data to the regression line) of almost 70% compared to 13% for public data and 30% for self proclaimed industry “experts”.
Our EV / DER Prophet© application is being piloted at several utilities in Asia, the U.S. and Canada.
“DRˣ has enabled us to automate the process of monitoring incoming weather and projecting damage and outage activity. Their platform accurately forecasts number of outages and resource requirements, which has allowed us to take much of the guesswork out of storm management and has cut our storm overtime significantly.”
– Manager Reliability Strategy, Large Midwestern Utility
“The sophisticated customer demographic/psychographic modeling of DRˣ revealed that early adopters of EVs would be clustered on our distribution system. In our case, 85-90% of the first 20% of EVs would be on 1/6th of our feeders. This meant that significant system reinforcements will be needed 6 to 8 years earlier than we thought.”
