This paper discusses present data availability for distribution networks and how increasingly this is inadequate for future management requirements of assets and operations, particularly as SmartGrids become a reality. The concept of a third generation distribution monitoring system (3GMS) that will satisfy both operational and asset management needs simultaneously is presented followed by the description of an actual 3GMS based on optical sensors and a smart communications front end. The paper concludes with a summary of an actual installation.
