EPRI OTS Service Center Contract for 2005 focuses on Visualization and Training Scenarios
Monday, August 01, 2005
The 9th renewal of the EPRI-OTS Service Center contract with EPRI has some new challenging features. The first one is the interfacing of EPRI’s CAR (Community Activity Room) visualization software with the OTS via a CIM interface. The work will involve an additional interfacing with the DSI-OPF™ (Interior-Point Method Optimal Power Flow by DSI). The result will be a capability to allow users to visualize the security/reliability level of the system and to quickly determine the type and level of insecurity and the control actions to be undertaken. Furthermore, the contract calls for expanded activities in developing, implementing and testing of various scenarios for dispatcher training. Of course, should additional funding be provided, then more features can be added to an already rich set of capabilities in the EPRI-OTS. For more info on the OTS itself, visit www.epriots.com .
