Strengthen your Smart Grid solution with Schneider Electric’s Responder Outage Management System (OMS).

Whether due to aging assets, extreme weather patterns, or increasing energy demand, efficiently and reliably managing distribution network outages is becoming increasingly difficult. As the market grows more competitive and regulations advance, outages are also becoming more costly. To realize the potential in their Smart Grid solutions, electric utilities must minimize the disruption and costs associated with network outages and crew management.

Schneider Electric’s Responder is a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that will help you reduce the duration of outages by locating them faster — and having better information at hand to direct your response. Since it seamlessly integrates with Schneider Electric’s world-leading ArcFM™, your costs are reduced and you can realize even more power and capabilities from your
GIS software investment (integration with other common GIS products is
also supported).

Responder identifies the likely location of an outage based on input from your call center, field crews, and AMI and SCADA systems. It uses your existing asset and map data, so any changes you make to your GIS database are automatically incorporated into Responder — thus reducing IT expenditures, eliminating redundant updates, and providing one version of the truth.

    • Responder Outage Management System Strengthen your Smart Grid solution with Schneider Electric’s Responder Outage Management System (OMS) Whether due to aging assets, extreme weather patterns, or increasing energy demand, efficiently and reliably managing distribution network outages is becoming increasingly difficult. As the market grows more competitive and regulations advance, outages are also becoming more costly. To realize the potential in their Smart Grid solutions, electric utilities must minimize the disruption and costs associated with network outages and crew management. Schneider Electric’s Responder is a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that will help you reduce the duration of outages by locating them faster — and having better information at hand to direct your response. Since it seamlessly integrates with Schneider Electric’s world-leading ArcFM™ , your costs are reduced and you can realize even more power and capabilities from your GIS software investment (integration with other common GIS products is also supported). Responder identifies the likely location of an outage based on input from your call center, field crews, and AMI and SCADA systems. It uses your existing asset and map data, so any changes you make to your GIS database are automatically incorporated into Responder — thus reducing IT expenditures, eliminating redundant updates, and providing one version of the truth. A quick, intuitive look at your system With its intuitive graphical user interface, Responder represents outages in geographic, tabular, and dashboard views that are easily leveraged by dispatchers. Armed with detailed information about your electrical distribution network — including real-time representation of system switching states — they’ll be able to prioritize work and effectively assign crews, greatly accelerating your response time and reducing inefficient truck roles. 02 | Responder Outage Management System Responder OMS is a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that will help you reduce the duration of outages by locating them faster.
    • Automatic outage and reliability documentation At a fraction of the cost of manual reporting, Responder produces online and historical reports regarding outages and reliability indices. These reports provide auditable network performance documentation for regulators, and enable you to address customer demands for improved response. You’ll find this documentation invaluable for future planning too. With accurate historical outage information from your Responder OMS, you’ll be able to identify system weaknesses and plan strategic investments that increase the reliability of your service. A scalable, flexible solution built on open standards Responder was developed using Microsoft’s industry-leading .NET Framework. Its three-tier architecture is built using open standards and nonproprietary programming languages, enabling smooth integration with other systems such as CIS, SCADA, AMI, Work Management, IVR, etc. With support for Web, mobile, and desktop access, Responder is scalable and flexible, so you can tailor a solution that best fits your organization. Other functionality includes: • Call entry and visualization • Network tracing and prediction analysis • Incident creation and management • Crew dispatch and tracking for planned and unplanned work • Network management (switching, tagging, cuts, jumpers, etc.) • Alarming and event management • System reliability calculations (CAIDI, SAIDI, SAIFI, MAIFI) • AMI integration infrastructure • Seamlessly integrated weather data Take another step into the Smart Grid Responder OMS is just one component in the Schneider Electric ArcFM Solution Suite, a comprehensive toolset created to help you efficiently plan, design, and reliably operate the grid. With capabilities that include network monitoring, event analysis and prediction, crew and switch order management, and the ability to integrate with enterprise software, the Schneider Electric’s ArcFM Solution Suite can help your utility transition into a next generation energy provider.
