A pioneering analysis of smart meter events aimed to enhance low-voltage (LV) network operation by the detection of voltage deviations, repetitive incidents or even outage prevention is presented. The main challenge of using smart meters events is the vast amount of data collected: the average of events gathered in an area per day is around 40% higher than the number of smart meters installed. To transform this huge quantity of information in network improvements, a set of strategies have been undertaken. The core purpose of this analysis is to establish a more rational and automated processing of smart meter events, aimed to embrace them as key information for network operation.
