Creating a reliable and secure Advanced Distribution Management SystemAdvanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) solutions integrate supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technology with other information management to enable greater automated control for more efficient distribution. This paper discusses the security criteria for making SCADA systems secure and reliable.
Find out how to leverage ADMS to maximize renewable benefitsWhether distributed solar plays a large role on your grid now or is expected to in the future, it’s important to determine now how it will impact your electrical distribution system so you can ensure reliable planning, adequate generation and efficient dispatch.
How the convergence of IT and OT enables smart grid developmentThe goal for any utility that invests in smart grid technology is to attain higher efficiency and reliable performance. A smart grid platform implies the convergence of Operations Technology (OT) – the grid physical infrastructure assets and applications–and Information Technology (IT) – the human interface that enables rapid and informed decision making. This paper describes best practices for migrating to a scalable, adaptable, smart grid network.
Leveraging EcoStruxure™ ADMS to maximize renewable benefitsSolar is the most abundant renewable energy source available, but the ability to harness and distribute it alongside existing sources of energy is new territory for many utilities and ISOs. Accurate forecasting of this variable resource is critical for maintaining an efficient and reliable network. This paper will discuss how innovations such as advanced distribution management systems (ADMS) combined with weather forecasting can provide visibility and modeling tools to maximize the benefits of distributed generation.
Enhancing utility outage management system (OMS) performanceTraditional grid outage management systems suffer from two fundamental flaws: they lack an accurate, current representation of the grid network model and they typically do not integrate with the systems that monitor and control the actual grid. These shortcomings result in longer outages, higher costs, and in lower levels of customer service. This whitepaper outlines the evolution of utility outage management and describes how new Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) tools address these two gaps.
