Taking Advantage of Smart Meters with InService OMS

Session ID 7206



Smart grid and smart meters have become synonymous terminology. The
deployment of the next generation of smart meters can provide many benefits for a
utility by lowering the cost of meter operations, including turn on and turn offs. The
use of smart meters to improve operating performance is still a new and largely
untapped area of potential benefit. This presentation will explore the business
benefits and technical approaches of integration between AMI/MDM and outage
management and case studies provided by the Intergraph AMI partner, eMeter.
Intergraph will also provide a brief update on the I/AMI product for version 8.3 and
discuss potential future enhancements.

§
Find outages before your
customers call

§
Challenge for the business:

Massive amounts of
unfiltered storm data
can overwhelm OMS
§
Benefits for the business:

Delivers fast, accurate
storm data to the OMS

Filters data relevant to the
storm outage only

Simultaneously monitors
multiple AMI systems
Use Case 1: Faster Time to Resolution
Slide

6/9/2011
§
Challenge for the business

Without ability to filter data
coming from AMI, the
OMS is overwhelmed
with data that is difficult
to diagnose.
§
Benefits to the business:

Provides accurate,
summarized data to OMS
to diagnose outage
quickly

Runs diagnostics only on
circuits involved in outage

Handles multiple AMI
systems

Tests individual points or
specific circuit sections
Use Case 2: Map Outage & Dispatch Crews
Slide

6/9/2011
§
Challenge for the business:

Crews don’t have ability to
verify100% restoration
§
Benefits to the business:

Enables fast and accurate
tracking of outages and
verification of restorations

Provides restoration
verification by meter,
circuit, or distribution node

Delivers circuit data
requested by outage
management and work
management systems

Enables the monitoring of
system status, circuit
repairs, and meters

Supports multiple AMI
systems
Use Case 3: Certainty of Outage Recovery
Slide

§
Don’t send technicians if
there isn’t a problem they
can solve

§
Challenge for the business:

Your call center can’t tell if
an outage affects a
single customer, a block
or a neighborhood
§
Benefits to the business:

Verifies meter power status
quickly and accurately

Differentiates between
customer premise
issues and grid outages

Supports customer issue
resolution in one phone
call

Eliminates unnecessary
service visits
Use Case 4: Better Info / Less Frustration
6/9/2011
EnergyIP Real-time Event Notifications

Outage Support Services for OMS Integration
§
Events received from the AMI system are processed
immediately by EnergyIP.
§
Filtering logic can be applied to ensure positive outage
reporting and exclude momentary or aged outage
events.
§
Notifications are sent to OMS / NMS using web services
interface.
§
Unique outage filtering services can be setup for different
customer types.
6/9/2011
EnergyIP Event Filtering Options
§
Event Reporting Latency Threshold

Filters events where messages from the AMI system have
been delayed.
§
Momentary outages

Outage events are held and filtered if a restoration event is
received within a configurable timeframe.
§
Regional Storm Mode

Used when large outages are expected, filters outage and
restoration events from all meters except specially
designated service delivery points (“bellwether meters”).
§
Open Service Requests / Field Orders

Filters events if they occur when a field service crew is
expected to be on location.

6/9/2011
EnergyIP Power Status Verification Processing
§
Power verification requests can be initiated from an
external system or from EnergyIP.
§
Requests can be for a single meter, list of meters, or all
service delivery points associated to a distribution
network node.
§
Response can include individual meter statuses, as well
as summarized power status of the distribution node
(transformer).

Automatic Verification
§
Automatic Outage Verification

Dispatcher is able to verify that a customer is out of power for single
customer/transformer outages before a crew is dispatched.
§
At service level outage creation, if the meter is ping-able, the system
will automatically ping the meter or a sample of all meters on the
transformer.
§
The results of the ping will be displayed in the Meter Ping Results
dialog for all dispatchers monitoring the agency/dgroup of the
outage.
§
The system will automatically ping on event creation when there is
only one call on an outage – whether service level or transformer
event type.
§
Automatic Restoration Verification

The system will verify if the power is back on when an outage is
closed.
§
Configured by feature types (breaker, switch, etc.) that will generate
the automatic outage restoration verification ping upon outage
event closure
§
When an outage event is closed, the system will automatically ping a
selected sample of meters including all customers that called in.
§
The results of the ping will be displayed in the Meter Ping Results
dialog for all dispatchers monitoring the agency/dgroup of the
outage.
§
Slide
27
6/9/2011
Unsolicited Meter Status Messages
§
The system provides the ability to take an unsolicited meter status
message from the AMI system and create a meter status message

Displays in the Meter Ping Results dialog for all users.
§
If an unsolicited meter out message comes in and there is also an
associated outage call for this meter, the Call Number will be included
with the record in the Meter Ping Results dialog.
§
Supervisors can suspend processing of incoming unsolicited AMI
messages.

Unsolicited messages are ignored (not written to the database or
displayed in the Meter Results Dialog).

The system discards all unsolicited meter messages from the queue
during the suspension.

The suspension is for the entire system and this setting will be persisted
between sessions
.

§
Unique Symbol for AMI Calls on the Map

Users will be able to distinguish customer notifications (call or AMI)
from manually created calls from the Meter Ping Results dialog.

Users can turn the display of AMI symbols off and on in the map as
needed.

§
Display Outage Calls Dialog

Each call displayed will have additional information
§
Call: Yes if a customer called, empty if not.
§
Meter: Yes if the call has an AMI message associated, empty if not.
§
Meter Status Date/Time
§
Call Date/Time

There will only be one row for each call
§
The customer call and the meter information will be combined in one
row.

Communication & Message Formats

Communication to AMI is through Websphere.

IEC 61970-301 (Edition 2.0, 2009-04), “Energy management system
application program interface (EMS-API) – Part 301: Common
information model (CIM) base”

IEC 61968-9 (Edition 1.0, 2009-09), “Application integration at electric
utilities – System interfaces for distribution management – Part 9:
Interfaces for meter reading and control”
§
The system administrator can provide timeout values for the following:

Ignore ping responses after X amount of time (how long to wait for a
ping response before ignoring the response)

Suppress sending a ping request if I/Callback processes the request
after X amount of time.
§
If Callback is down, it will ignore old ping requests

TA will not generate ping requests after X amount of time.
§
If TA is down, it will ignore old ping requests
