DistribuTECH 2015

BRIDGE Energy Group presented at DistribuTECh 2015 to highlight expertise on AMI-OMS Integration, NERC CIP and Reforming the Energy Vision in New York

You may Email BRIDGE to request a copy of the any of the presentations listed below.

1.  NERC CIP v5 Strategies and Approaches
Presented by IT Director, Exelon and VP Cybersecurity, BRIDGE Energy Group

NERC CIP V5 brings a tenfold increase on the number of critical assets utilities now need to classify within scope – including such assets as control centers, substations, and generation facilities. With time, resources, and a “roadmap” in short supply, discussion will offer real-world NERC CIP insights from ComEd and BRIDGE Energy Group to help your utility to move forward.

2.  Reforming the Energy Vision in New York
Moderated by VP Grid Optimization, BRIDGE Energy Group, with panelists from
ConEd, National Grid, NYISO and more

The distributed system platform provider (DSPP) is a new business model for the distribution utility and is at the heart of REV. The DSPP fulfills dual roles as dynamic and distributed grid operator, and as an enabler of a retail level energy market for distributed resources and third party solutions. REV calls for the DSPP to “animate a distribution level market” making distributed energy resources (DER) central to system planning and as a robust consumer driven market.

3.  Integrating AMI and OMS:  A Case Study with BC Hydro
Presented by Meter Data & Operations Integration Manager, BC Hydro and
VP Grid Optimization, BRIDGE Energy Group

Outage messages from smart meters and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) can increase the effectiveness of outage management systems. However, ensuring that the messages are accurate and useful for operators can be challenging. The integration solution between AMI and OMS can make all the difference in achieving the business benefits that a utility seeks.


The Utility University course can be prepared as a 1 day workshop for your utility.  Email BRIDGE to learn more.

UU 203*: AMI-OMS Integration: Overcoming the Hurdles
Instructor, Principal Integration Consultant, BRIDGE Energy Group

How can something that sounds simple be so difficult? Outage messages from smart meters and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) can increase the effectiveness of outage management systems (OMS) significantly, yet ensuring accurate, useful information for operators is challenging. The integration solution between AMI and OMS can make all the difference in achieving the business benefits. Participants will learn the capabilities and limitations of AMI and OMS systems and will examine successful integration approaches of two major North American utilities. Presentations include: techniques for advanced filtering of power down and power up messages; near real-time interrogation of meter status; leveraging elements of the distribution network topology model; and a BC Hydro case study.
