Substation Communications Design Legacy to IEC 61850 Best Practices

03/25/2014

Two trends, the migration of the electrical grid to the “Smart Grid” and the adoption of Ethernet networking technologies are causing many utilities to re-evaluate their substation communications infrastructure.   As operations move from “islands of automation” to systems that tie all the “islands” together many engineers, field technicians, managers, IT professionals and others do not know where to begin.   

To help, Belden has consolidated its learning and experience from helping hundreds of customers around the world design robust substation communications networks.  The result is an easy-to-follow process that incorporates the 10 best practices described in this white paper.  It provides guidance on segmenting Ethernet communications into groups, adding remote access, implementing security and more.

How to Mitigate Risk and Ensure Compliance: Govern Your Documents Accordingly

03/20/2014

Too often, organizations hear “information governance” and think “records management” and “compliance.” In today’s information-rich—sometimes information-saturated—business environments, information governance must do more, helping to also manage risk, reduce costs, drive operational excellence and provide strategic and decision-making value. In this paper, OpenText and PennEnergy take a collaborative look at the changing role of information governance as well as its evolving value proposition. The paper first examines the factors shaping the current information governance environment as they pertain to the energy industry. It then looks at key information governance trends in energy, discusses what advanced information governance can do for today’s organizations, reviews a range of achievable benefits and outlines some examples of successful industry implementations.

Managing Assets for Maximum Performance and Value

02/21/2014

Investments in asset management software can provide benefits that far exceed the costs and technical challenges. A key to success is to manage assets on a lifecycle basis, tracking all relevant data from concept and commissioning through end of life and disposal. An asset lifecycle information management (ALIM) strategy can optimize visibility into current operations and create a solid foundation for master data management, business intelligence, and analytics.

This whitepaper describes the current state of asset management and explains why companies adopting ALIM report strong benefits and satisfaction. It also provides recommendations that will give you an edge and a competitive advantage when adopting ALIM.
