Advanced Distribution Automation Workforce Management Project 2011 Oracle Corporation Proprietary and Confidential Page 5 6. 2. Intermittent Renewables and Electricity Storage !Maintaining Safe, Secure, Reliable Supply Protecting todays resources for the next generation Moving to distributed generation and micro grids while satisfying rising demand requires new systems and process to ensure supply is safe and secure Incorporation of intermittent power sources will need more accurate forecasting, more robust sensing equipment and more real time monitoring Management of smart equipment requires new processes to ensure accuracy and reliability in the field with the need to move towards distributed system management 2011 Oracle Corporation Proprietary and ConfidentialPage 6 7. 3. Aging Assets To control costs, many Utilities have deferred asset replacementand maintenance programs Because of the growth booms prior to the 1970s, many utilitiesare operating utility assets nearly at or beyond their designeduseful lives. MaintainOR Fail 2011 Oracle Corporation Proprietary and Confidential Page 7 8. 4. Smart Grid Device Management ! Convergence of IT, OT, & Consumer Energy Technologies drives the need to establish Smart Device Asset Management Regulatory compliance may be requiredSmart Grid is bringing IT and OT closer togetherSmart Grid systems increasingly use modern IT platforms, security, and protocols (IP) Traditional Utility Operations Technology (OT)systems have been outside of the scope of IT andthe CIO The lack of a successful IT/OT governance impedesperformance SG device lifecycle management typically does notexist beyond project implementation NIST guidelines & NERC-CIP regulation 2011 Oracle Corporation Proprietary and ConfidentialPage 8 9. 5.
