Automated technical management systems
The creation of network management centers began in 2005. According to the approved action plan we started to create network management centers in our branches. Permenergo center started to operate since 2009, Sverdlovenergo and Chelyabenergo centers followed it next year. Performance of all operating functions by the NMCs improves the quality of technical management of Perm, Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk power grids, ensures optimal repair modes, reduced losses, rapid liquidation of network incidents as well as monitoring of equipment operating modes. All NMCs are equipped with automation devices ensuring successful execution of functions (ATMS, simulators, automated system for exchanging requests for changes in operating equipment status, network mode software packages).
ATMS is developed according to the Company’s strategy in IT, automation and telecommunications approved by the Board of Directors. In terms of ATMS the strategy focuses on the improved efficiency of Company’s operations due to maximum efficiency of personnel via automated processes for collection, processing, storage and transmission of data, decision-taking and implementation of technological management functions based on sophisticated software and hardware automation means, computers and IT.
The most important subsystems are:
|Automated Dispatcher Management System (ADMS)||Information Collection and Transmission System (ICTS)|
|Acquisition of information on operating status of power grids, processing and submission of information to a dispatcher||Acquisition of telemetric information from facilities, transmission to ADMS, exchange of information with regional dispatcher divisions of SO UES and other subjects|
Key target programs are ICTS upgrade program approved with SO UES (prepared and approved in 2010, adjusted in 2014) and ADMS upgrade program. The strategy determines the target model of the Company’s ADMS as a system with a shared information model and distributed infrastructure for branch NMCs and dispatch centers in production units. The model allows combination of advantages, specific for global data storage and processing systems, and high reliability, since it may operate even if the infrastructure is partially destroyed. The ADMS upgrade program facilitates the transition to the model described above.
