White Paper - Enhancing Utility Outage Management System (OMS) Performance

Version 1

    Traditional grid outage management systems suffer from two fundamental flaws: they lack an accurate, current representation of the grid network model and they typically don‟t integrate with the systems that monitor and control the actual grid. These shortcomings result in longer outages, higher costs, and in lower levels of customer service. This white paper outlines the evolution of utility outage management and describes how new Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) tools address these two gaps.
