Efacec ACS, a provider of smart grid solutions, has been selected to install a complete turn-key PRISM SCADA system to Cleveland Public Power. The new system will be used for control of CPP's sub-transmission, as well as the utility's distribution system.
The server-based SCADA system will be deployed using a distributed architecture, providing CPP with full redundancy for both primary and backup systems. Efacec ACS will also supply and install new operator consoles in the utility control center. Software applications to be delivered with the PRISM SCADA system include the advanced graphical operator interface, enterprise historian, automatic generation control, short term load forecasting and interchange transaction scheduling.
CPP's electrical footprint extends throughout the city of Cleveland, providing service to the nearly 80,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers.
