Asset Management Fundamentals, December 7, 2020

Substation Asset Management Fundamentals, December 9, 2020

Amidst aging transmission and distribution infrastructure, digitally forward asset managers, equipped with advanced analytics tools are realizing significant gain from using data analytics to improve asset health. Data analytics can be used to monitor T&D assets to gauge their performance, predict and prevent failures, and prioritize asset renewal. Newer technologies are being used in the collection of data to be analyzed while grid components such as energy storage can cause issues but also assist in the planning of system upgrades and replacements. As a result, improved decisions can be made on asset strategy and O&M budget spending on aging T&D infrastructure.

At EUCI’s Transmission & Distribution Asset Analytics Summit, participants will gain strategic insights on how data analytics is playing a key role in their asset investment decisions. The summit also provides beneficial best practices from leading utilities on how to utilize data to optimize asset performance and make ‘maintain or replace’ decisions.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify issues with battery storage busbar monitoring and analytics
  • Discuss the results of an asset performance management (APM) system implementation
  • Explore the relationship between asset management, risk management, resiliency, and sustainability
  • Examine how a variety of data plays a role in reducing the potential for wildfires and enhancing response when they occur
  • Discuss the benefits of incorporating degradation curves in health indexing
  • Review the components of long-term risk-based asset plans
  • Identify various performance metrics and their applications for use
  • Examine capital prioritization using risk matrix and business values
  • Review the APM tool system requirements
  • Engage in a visualization demonstration

Aging assets and limited resources, combined with external forces of nature, are challenging utilities like never before.  Risk management capabilities are critical for responding to storms, wildfires, earthquakes and other stresses and shocks to utility infrastructure.  Successfully managing these risks is key to long-term sustainable operations.

This session will explore the relationship between asset management, risk management, resiliency, and sustainability.  Case studies and examples will be used to provide guidance on navigating this uncertain future.

  • Managing aging assets
  • Responding to external stresses and shocks such as climate change
  • Risk management principles and techniques
  • Achieving sustainability

Tom Myers, Principal Asset Management Consultant, HDR

2:35 – 2:40 p.m. :: Break


2:40 – 3:25 p.m. :: APM Implementation

Asset performance management (APM) is still an emerging field of technologies and strategies that aims to improve and optimize asset management by centralizing asset information. It builds a bridge between software such as enterprise asset management systems, workforce management systems and other relevant sources of data that pertain to assets. With consolidating of this information, analytics can translate data into meaningful insights that cut costs and improve the safety and reliability of the grid. This presentation will cover what was learned during and since Newmarket-Tay Power implanted their APM system.

Alex Braletic, Manager of Engineering, Newmarket-Tay Power Distribution Ltd
