Cambridge and North Dumfries Hydro (CND) has chosen Advanced Control Systems (ACS) to supply an outage management system (OMS) and distribution management system (DMS) to the utility.

The OMS/DMS will integrate into the utility's existing PRISM supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system from ACS to enable CND to operate more efficiently and provide better outage information and more reliable power to their 52,500 customers.

First, the OMS will be integrated with the SCADA system, enabling Cambridge's system control operators to operate both systems on a common platform using a single-source database. Viewing OMS data in real-time will more efficiently identify, predict and address outage situations.

The second phase of the project will deliver advanced DMS functionality, such as three-phase unbalanced load-flow modeling of the system to support advanced analysis and automation applications (e.g., integrated volt/VAR control, and fault detection, isolation and restoration (FDIR), as well as a distribution system simulator for operator training and planning scenarios.
