While many utilities today have yet to realize the full benefits of a DMS implementation, Minsait ACS is solving this challenge by delivering true ROI with our Onesait Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS). Based on our more than 40 years of experience delivering “mission critical” real-time systems, Onesait ADMS features advanced analysis applications to optimize network operations, combined with field-proven SCADA for monitoring and control and integrated Outage Management for tracking, analyzing and restoring outages – all resulting in improved network resiliency, reliability and power quality.
Onesait ADMS is a DER-enabled solution with a flexible, distributed architecture design that helps utilities effectively integrate DER assets and grid-edge devices into a future-ready platform, providing a holistic view of network dynamics and enabling autonomous operation and optimization of the grid.
Delivering a common user experience, data model, and integration framework across applications – Onesait ADMS transcends the traditional monolithic, centralized approach to DMS, providing unique extensibility in support of enhanced grid management, optimization and analysis. And supported with a full suite of mobile applications and enterprise integrations, Onesait ADMS is the solution for utilities today looking to improve performance and maximize reliable, resilient, and safe power delivery.
The Optimal Switching application generates recommended switch plans for the operator to reconfigure the distribution system to meet a specified optimization objectives such as minimizing losses or voltage drops. Optimal Switching enforces selected operational constraints such as voltage/current limits, minimizing switch operations, no customer interruptions, and more.
GridVu Network is a mobile application used by utility crews and remotely-located utility personnel to visualize situational awareness of the network status, outages, work orders and planned switching—all overlaid on the network topology with Google Maps. GridVu Network is tightly integrated with the Onesait ADMS and displays dynamic network information including topology (colorization), power flow, switch status, tags, outages, work orders and crews.
The Onesait ADMS is DER-ready, providing flexible solutions that utilize Volt-VAr Optimization (VVO), load forecasting, and dynamic system reconfiguration to help mitigate these issues and improve the visibility and integrated operation of grid-connected DERs.
