Utility digital transformation requires energy management operations from control rooms to expand largely outside to field teams, to planning and analysts as well as utility management - in a safe, reliable and no cost of deployment.
Having a read-only EMS web interface from GE allowed all transmission operations support personnel normally stationed in the control room to work from home. Without it, social distancing and minimizing cross-contact with the 24x7 operations staff would have been almost impossible without major degradation to our workflow.
GridIQ allows us to easily provide select EMS displays to corporate users without the need to install and maintain desktop client software.
GIX is a rapid enabler for Master Station users and will help us securely expand our reach and oversight of the network status, particularly in times where remote working is required.
