Enhancement list status the numbers

Enhancement List Status – The Numbers

  • List developed at 2006 Focus Group

  • List prioritized via e-mail votes

  • Input received from 17 utilities

  • Votes received from 11 utilities

  • List contains 49 enhancements

  • Top 10 contains 13 items (ties for 4th, 6th and 9th place)

  • ABB has reviewed list

  • ABB plans to implement 14 features this year (Release 3), and 2 more next year (Release 4)

Planned Enhancement Details


Drag outage symbol

Drag Outage Symbol

  • Currently, partially restored outages show the outage symbol at location of original outage

  • Confusing when outage is not shown at isolation point

  • Was originally done by design, because there could be multiple isolation points


Initial outage

Initial Outage

Outage at Open Switch


Partial restore with two open fuses

Close Switch – Outage Partially Restored

Open fuses before closing switch

Partial Restore With Two Open Fuses


Move outage symbol

Move Outage Symbol

  • Enhancement will allow outage to be moved to either of the two open fuses

  • Outage will still show in outage history as being at switch

  • OMI locate from outage status will locate to new location

  • Entry in Outage Log should show which user performed the operation


Move outage symbol1

Move Outage Symbol

  • Different ways being considered:

    • Drag outage symbol in Ormap

    • Use standard device selection to allow user to pick:


Move outage symbol2

Move Outage Symbol

  • Different ways being considered:

    • Use something similar to candidate outages list (comes up when removing jumper)

    • User would select one isolation device from list, determined by tracing:


Customers that will be affected by an outage

Customers That Will Be Affected by an Outage

  • Existing operation confirmation dialog shows list of affected transformers

  • Could be modified to show customers in a separate tab


Customers that will be affected by an outage1

Customers That Will Be Affected by an Outage

  • Existing operation confirmation dialog shows list of affected transformers

  • Could be modified to show customers in a separate tab

  • Tab would allow list to be saved to an Oracle table

  • Free format text field allows planned outage to be specified

  • Would like a process to be executed afterwards – Oracle stored procedure

Tab Here


Customers that will be affected by an outage2

Customers That Will Be Affected by an Outage

  • Or, could create a switching plan in simulation mode

  • Execute switching plan

  • Generate list of customers

  • Switching plan approach currently planned for Release 4, could be copied back to Release 3


Landbase performance

Landbase Performance

  • Allow the loading of specific landbase layers into memory

  • Used for layers that will be on all the time, such as county or state outlines.

  • New database settings will be added to specify which layers are in memory


Show all crews in outage status dialog

Show All Crews in Outage Status Dialog

  • If more than one crew assigned to an outage, outage status dialog currently shows earliest crew in most advanced state, e.g.:

    • Crew Martin is Arrived at 10:00 am

    • Crew Bill is Enroute at 9:00 am

    • Dialog will show crew Martin, because he is Arrived


Show all crews in outage status dialog1

Show All Crews in Outage Status Dialog

  • Outage status dialog will be modified to show a tree of crews

    • Implement an 'Expand' function to show multiple entries for the same outage so that assigned crews can be shown

    • Expanded list should allow operations on crews to be performed, such as ETA, status change, etc

    • An indicator should show whether the outage has multiple crews assigned so that the user doesn’t have to expand


Device category in outage status

Device Category in Outage Status

  • Display additional device category information in outage status - fuse, recloser, circuit breaker

  • Additional column will be added

  • Existing column, showing ‘DEVICE’, ‘SERVICE TRANSFORMER’, ‘CUSTOMER’, ‘SOURCE’ will remain, but can be turned off


Dscada freeze time window

DSCADA Freeze Time Window

  • Current ASCII SCADA interface causes existing downstream outages to be frozen when an open operation is received

  • Intent is to prevent loss of nested outage information


Separate outages before scada operation

Separate Outages Before SCADA Operation


Frozen outages after scada operation

Frozen Outages after SCADA Operation


Dscada freeze time window1

DSCADA Freeze Time Window

  • Additional calls received after SCADA operation, but with a timestamp earlier than SCADA operation are also made part of frozen outage

  • However, if the SCADA clock is behind DMS time, calls do not freeze as they should

  • Solution: Add a time window to apply to calls so that they freeze


Default exact match in ormap locate to unchecked

Default 'Exact Match' in Ormap Locate to Unchecked

  • Currently box defaults to Exact Match being checked

  • Add preference to default to unchecked, as many searches are not exact

  • Enter should initiate the search

  • If the search yields only one result, Ormap should locate automatically


Remove 1st 100 limit in affected customers

Remove 1st 100 Limit in Affected Customers

  • Initial list will show 100

  • Count still needed

  • Scrolling down would automatically fetch the next 100

  • Also add a ‘next page’ button

  • And a ‘fetch all’ button


Blank out operation confirmation field time

Blank Out Operation Confirmation Field Time

  • Blank out field time stamp in operation confirmation dialog, rather than defaulting to current time/date

  • Operator is required to enter field time/date (e.g. gray out OK button until field is populated).

  • Time entry should allow calendar dialog for time entry or keyboard

  • Keyboard entry should be configurable to not require entry of seconds.

  • Colon should be optional

  • Behavior controlled by a user preference


Bulk etr updates via outage status dialog

Bulk ETR updates via Outage Status Dialog

  • Outage Completion Dialog can be used to restore multiple outages and assign bulk ETR updates

  • However, duplication of functionality between newer Outage Detail dialog and Outage Completion Dialog

  • Confusing for operators to use two different dialogs for same (or similar) purpose

  • Solution:

    • Allow multiple outages to be selected

    • Support ETR dialog display/entry for selected outages


Bulk etr updates via outage status dialog1

Bulk ETR updates via Outage Status Dialog

Need to enable ETOR button for multi-select


Isolated kva to exclude abandoned xfmrs

Isolated kVA to Exclude Abandoned Xfmrs

  • Isolated kVA dialog in Ormap shows transformers that are not electrically connected

  • Used for data debugging

  • Add checkbox and filter out transformers with the abandoned attribute set in the load table (new attribute)

  • Add second checkbox to filter out transformers that have zero (or negative!) number of customers

  • Should not show planned additions. If it does, add a checkbox to filter them out

  • The dialog will be resizable


Percent kva downstream

Percent kVA Downstream

  • Relic from 3.0 UNIX version

  • For old version, click on a line device to get connected kVA information per traced feeder

    • Total kVA

    • Downstream kVA

    • Percent kVA

  • Solution:

    • Add traced kVA information Right Mouse menu option


  • Login
