UT Smart Apps: Automated Planning for New Grid Connections

UT Smart Apps by AED-SICAD SSP Partner

What if One Tool Helped You Save Millions in Planning? 

Enter, UT Smart Apps  

You've been in this situation before. A request comes in to connect an electricity source to your network. You send it over to your engineers, who assess the feasibility of the installation. Days later, you have your answer.  What if an app could do all your calculations in a half hour, and free up two days for your engineers — every time?  Meet the UT Smart Apps from AED-SICAD.

What are the UT Smart Apps? 

The UT Smart Apps are a set of web-based tools that automates the electrical engineering tasks associated with assessing new grid connections. The apps are already saving utilities millions of dollars in reduced planning hours.  

Made by German Esri Platinum Partner AED-SICAD, these apps shave on average 15 hours off every new grid connection assessment. The apps are becoming popular as consumers demand more renewable energy sources, such as home solar panels. 

With the UT Smart Apps, you can:  

  • Reduce the time it takes to perform electrical engineering assessments 
  • Automate the repetitive, manual planning process  
  • Simulate grid installations for renewables and regular power connections 
  • Take into account ALL GIS considerations, every time  
  • Understand the full impact and potential dangers of an installation to your low-voltage network  
  • Free your engineers from a cumbersome, manual analytical process to perform other work
