The integration of an outage management system (OMS) with an advanced metering system (AMS) can have real benefits that quickly exceed expectations. Attend this live presentation and webinar to learn how Oncor has been able to restore power without customers even knowing there was a problem. By integrating its AMS with Intergraph’s InService OMS, Oncor has been able to restore 20 percent of outages without receiving a customer call. Additionally, the AMS-OMS integration has reduced the process of determining the scope of the outage from an hour to seconds. One unexpected side benefit has been the ability to detect power-quality issues prior to detection by customers. This has allowed Oncor to repair facilities without significant customer disruption. The company is using AMS data on individual premises to detect and correct issues on a scheduled basis prior to having a forced outage. In just six months, Oncor has avoided hundreds of power outages by analyzing and responding to this data.
