360˚ Situational Awareness for the Network Control Centre
Go360™ LiveOps brings planned and unplanned outage management, power restoration management, and distribution management into one comprehensive solution.
It allows system operators to analyze and visualize data in multiple ways while optimizing reliability, safety, day-to-day operations, and incident management response.
Go360 LiveOps integrates traditional systems (CIS, GIS, IVR, etc.) with advanced Smart Grid capabilities (AMI, Substation Automation, Self-Healing Devices, etc.). It aggregates data from multiple sources providing network operators an intuitive heads-up display with advanced functionality, such as preferred switching operations based on real-time network conditions.
Go360 LiveOps enables organizations to look at network data in multiple ways. By integrating Smart Grid technology such as SCADA and AMI, Go360 LiveOps can calculate and display asset load, predicted and confirmed outages, impact of planned work, and much more.
Go360 LiveOps’ real-time integration with live network estimation and optimization tools can significantly enhance network reliability by providing on-the-fly switch operations. Review asset and network stress by combining load point data (SCADA, AMI, Distributed Generation Metering, etc.) and current network operating status for real-time decision-making.
Go360 software provides operators, call takers / dispatchers, supervisors, and field crews with a unified interface for live operational monitoring, coordination, decision-making, dispatch, and control.
Network intelligence is sustained by its capabilities to instantaneously analyze outage information from a variety of sources. LiveOps then quickly identifies a potential fault location and determines the optimum isolation and restoration switching order.
The software provides robust operations and reliability reporting functionality and visualization. This includes IEEE compliant outage statistics, all current and historic network operations, loading, asset performance, and interactive time-based geospatial playback of network events.
Web Services, IEC Common Information Model, and MultiSpeak Interface Compliance
Go360 LiveOps’ technology has been developed utilizing an open architecture founded on web services, Oracle©, and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) spatial feature types. LiveOps’ electric network connectivity model is based on the IEC Common Information Model (CIM), an accurate and complete electric model that also incorporates complex Smart Grid features such as embedded generation (wind, solar etc.), energy storage and much more. This enables LiveOps to provide a single platform for an integrated Outage Management System (OMS) and Smart Grid ready advanced Distribution Management System (DMS).
Go360 LiveOps also has adapters for both CIM and MultiSpeak interfaces and is also easily configurable for any web service API or traditional in / outs such as DNP 3.0. The LiveOps application solves the problem of managing big data generated by the Smart Grid in real-time. LiveOps resides on an Oracle / Oracle Spatial platform, thereby leveraging the world’s number one real-time transactional database for managing “big data” with high performance.
LiveOps also incorporates integration of data streams from multiple systems, in real-time, to provide operators with rapid situational awareness. Go360 LiveOps open architecture ensures ease of integration, on-going system management, and scalability.
