NM-DMS Enhancements List StatusMartin Bass

ABB

Annual Users’ Group Meeting

August 27 – 31, 2006

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)
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

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
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
