ATLANTA, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Control Systems (ACS™), a global provider of smart grid automation technology, shipped the largest ADMS in the world and is the first to include SCADA, Distribution Management System (DMS), Outage Management System (OMS), mobile solutions-- together with new substation automation, communication network and two new control rooms capable of managing 10,000 substations.
This is another ACS first and a first in the energy industry where a turnkey ACS PRISM™ has designed a new full SCADA, DMS and OMS functionality installed in a purpose-built advanced control center, and communication system. This state-of-the art system with a full backup site, is architected as an integrated multi-node networked system which includes topology processing/network colorization, three-phase unbalanced distribution load flow, fault detection isolation and restoration (FDIR), integrated Volt/VAR control (IVVC), intelligent switch order creation, load forecasting with integrated OMS, GridVu™ system visualization.
"We are proud to deliver such an Advanced Control System that has been designed, developed and tested in the United States with a team of the best and brightest U.S. developers and engineers. The rich functionality provided with ACS's PRISM system forms the basis of a "smart grid" infrastructure that will ensure that new requirements and consumer growth can be managed well into the future," said ACS CEO Kevin Sullivan.
The utility benefits include more than automating the 11 kV distribution network to ensure uninterrupted power supply. ACS designed, field-tested and implemented innovative technology which will be minimizing sustained outages, increasing energy sales, improving the reliability of power supply, enhancing the quality of service and important to the utility-- improving consumer customer satisfaction.
According to ACS Chief Technology Officer Gary Ockwell, "The PRISM system will integrate all IT related activities into a single ADMS while optimizing network visualization and control."
