Vattenfall and TAURON Power Companies Achieve Success with STATISTICA
Two European electric power companies have announced successful results of STATISTICA integrations for purposes of data mining, forecasting, and consulting.
Vattenfall Distribution Poland S.A. in Gliwice, a subsidiary of Swedish-owned Vattenfall A.B., commissioned StatSoft Polska Sp. z o.o. to perform statistical and empirical analysis on representative data describing multiple parameters of a low voltage power nework. Use of representative data, collected via a SONET system, allowed for extrapolation of analytics results across the entire network. According to Vattenfall’s Deputy Director of Network Maintenance, Miroslaw Janik, this approach made it “possible to reduce considerably the costs and time of this project…without the need to check all our network appliances on location.” READ MORE >>
