Patent
Consolidated Edison Company of New York and Green Charge Networks | Date: 2012-02-23

A computer-implemented method and system of providing utility service network information for a utility service network. The method includes obtaining utility service network information from a plurality of external sources, integrally combining the utility service network information obtained from each of the plurality of external sources into and displaying the utility service network information in real-time in a global positioning map to a user via a graphical user interface, selecting, via the user, specific utility service network information of the utility service network information, to be displayed, and automatically reconfiguring the system or manually reconfiguring the utility service network via the user, as needed based on the specific utility service network information selected.

Techniques for managing one or more buildings, including collecting historical building data, real-time building data, historical exogenous data, and real-time exogenous data and receiving the collected data at an adaptive stochastic controller. The adaptive stochastic controller can generate at least one predicted condition with a predictive model. The adaptive stochastic controller can generate one or more executable recommendations based on at least the predicted conditions and one or more performance measurements corresponding to the executable recommendations.


Patent
Consolidated Edison Company of New York and Columbia University | Date: 2012-10-08

A capital asset planning system for selecting assets for improvement within an infrastructure that includes one or more data sources descriptive of the infrastructure, one or more databases, coupled to the one or more data sources, to compile the one or more data sources, one or more processors, each coupled to and having respective communication interfaces to receive data from the one or more databases. The processor includes a predictor to generate a first metric of estimated infrastructure effectiveness based, at least in part, on a current status of the infrastructure, a second metric of estimated infrastructure effectiveness based, at least in part, on a user-selected, proposed changed configuration of the infrastructure, and a net metric of infrastructure effectiveness based, at least in part, on said first metric and said second metric. The system also includes a display, coupled to have the one or more processors, for visually presenting the net metric of infrastructure effectiveness, in which the assets for improvement are selected based, at least in part, on the net metric of infrastructure effectiveness.


Patent
Consolidated Edison Company of New York and Columbia University | Date: 2013-01-15

A machine learning system for ranking a collection of filtered propensity to failure metrics of like components within an electrical grid that includes a raw data assembly to provide raw data representative of the like components within the electrical grid; (b) a data processor, operatively coupled to the raw data assembly, to convert the raw data to more uniform data via one or more data processing techniques; (c) a database, operatively coupled to the data processor, to store the more uniform data; (d) a machine learning engine, operatively coupled to the database, to provide a collection of propensity to failure metrics for the like components; (e) an evaluation engine, operatively coupled to the machine learning engine, to detect and remove non-complying metrics from the collection of propensity to failure metrics and to provide the collection of filtered propensity to failure metrics; and (f) a decision support application, operatively coupled to the evaluation engine, configured to display a ranking of the collection of filtered propensity to failure metrics of like components within the electrical grid.

Patent
Consolidated Edison Company of New York | Date: 2012-12-14

Devices for and methods of connecting a buried tracer wire to a buried utility pipe are described. The devices and methods include providing a tracer wire connector connected to a clamp, attaching the clamp to a metal portion of the buried utility pipe, and placing an end of the buried tracer wire in the tracer wire connector so that a conductor in the tracer wire is in electrical communication with the buried utility pipe. A sacrificial anode may be conductively attached to the tracer wire connector.


Patent
Consolidated Edison Company of New York | Date: 2012-06-21

A device for interrupting the flow of electrical power in an electrical distribution system is provided. The device includes a sensor operably coupled to the electrical distribution system. A switching mechanism is coupled to the electrical distribution system, the switching mechanism movable between an open position and a closed position. A controller operably coupled to the sensor and the switching mechanism, the controller having a processor that is responsive to executable computer instructions when executed on the processor incrementing a first counter in a first mode of operation and a second counter in a second mode of operation. Wherein the processor is further responsive to executable computer instructions for switching from the first mode to the second mode in response to a signal from the sensor.


Patent
