Efacec to deliver DMS/OMS to Glendale Water and Power

Atlanta, April 3, 2012 — Glendale Water and Power has chosen Efacec ACS to provide its Prism advanced outage management and distribution management solutions as part of the municipal utility's progressive smart grid program.

GWP selected the OMS and DMS from Efacec ACS to be deployed as an extension of the Efacec ACS Prism SCADA system already in place at the utility.

Based on Efacec ACS' scalable and open Prism platform, the GWP system will be delivered with advanced distribution applications such as optimal switching, fault detection isolation and restoration, dispatcher power flow and integrated volt/VAR control.

The solution also includes comprehensive, real-time outage management functionality — using the same network model, database and operator interface — providing GWP personnel with enhanced network visualization and true real-time performance that is crucial to effective operations during outage events.

The OMS applications include: call taking/call management, automatic prediction analysis, incident and outage ticket generation, work order management, crew management, real-time performance indices calculations and a MultiSpeak interface to the existing interactive voice response system.
