Advanced Distribution Management Systems (ADMS) Deployment

Advanced Distribution Management Systems (ADMS) Deployment

Complimentary Web Series

October 19-20, 2021 | Online :: Central Time

Overview

“EUCI does a great job brining the experience of the industry to the classroom in a very interactive way. The presenters tell you the truth! You will be able to start and advance your project and inject benchmarks into your own utility to deliver great results”, SCADA/EMS Manager, Jamaica Public Service

“Hearing from the Vendors and the Peer presentations were extremely useful”, Manager, DTE

“Great topics and presentations, speakers were especially knowledgeable“, IT Manager, Exelon

The utility industry is experiencing a period of unprecedented change. Demand for customer centricity, the rise of consumers demanding electricity flows from and to the grid, technology advancements, digitalization, and the requirements for more reliability plus, control and supply of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) has forced this change.  Across the globe, Advanced Distribution Management Systems (ADMS) have been implemented successfully and are now operating, ready to cope with and analyze the increased data and need for higher-level analytics to make their distribution systems more efficient, responsive, and ready to include DER levels never seen before.

But getting high quality information on…, “From Where I Stand, to Where I need to Go?” is not easily accessible. 

This series of webinars, each co-presented with a Utility, will focus on technology, deployment and the do’s and don’ts of such ADMS implementation.   A “Vendor Panel” will complete the series.  Fully interactive, the reason for this unique event is to allow electric utilities from across the globe to access, in the most efficient manner possible, and for free, the best of the best vendors and their client case studies.  Utilities will be able to see into their future with the ability to access the most complete ADMS solutions available.

Utilities who have realized the need for an ADMS, no matter their number of meters and their legacy SCADA/DMS/OMS systems, will realize in two days the universe of what is possible and how each different vendor accommodates their performance requirements.

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Hear from the Top ADMS Software Vendor from across the globe
  • Examine their software characteristics and benefits
  • Explain how the Vendor’s worked with their client Utilities to design the ADMS software specific to their Utility and Legacy software systems
  • Discuss how to implement such software, “all at once” or “over time”
  • Explain how leveraging technology improves their grid modernization efforts including how to incorporate increased DERs coming into their own grids, known or unknown
  • Participate in a fully interactive Panel Discussion featuring our Vendors in a fast paced environment allowing each to differentiate their ADMS

Leveraging DER and Advanced Inverters to Support Grid Operations via Advanced Distribution Management Systems (ADMS)

Due to a range of economic, regulatory and environmental drivers, DER such as solar PV and electric vehicles are being interconnected to the distribution grid at a fast pace. If passively managed, DER can present unique challenges to electric power utilities. GE Digital will share how DER and advanced inverters can be integrated into Grid Operations via an ADMS.

Jesse Gantz, Senior Product Manager, Renewables and DER Orchestration, GE Digital’s Grid Software

2:00 – 3:00 p.m. :: Grid of the Future in the Era of Extremes; Sponsored by Oracle

With the increasingly rapid onset and growing frequency of extreme weather, utilities are adjusting their Grid Modernization vision to incorporate even greater reliability, resilience and adaptability. Brad Williams, VP Industry Strategy and Innovation Engineering will be joined by a utility customer of Oracle Utilities to describe how the Grid of the Future has changed in an era of extremes.
