Gtechnology / GElectric

  1. 1. Gtechnology / GElectric Michael Seah Senior Industry Specialist
  2. 2. Electric Network
  3. 3. Transmission
  4. 4. SubStation 150 / 5 MVA
  5. 5. Distribution Transformer
  6. 6. Some of our customers – Empire Electric – Hawaiian Electric Company – Spectra Energy – Bell Canada – Kitchener Wilmot – London Hydro Hydro – Ottawa – Toronto Hydro – Brantford Power – Enersource – Snohomish County Public Utility District – Sacramento Municipal Utilities District – Central Vermont Public Service – Progress Energy – Detroit Edison – Wisconsin Public Service – Philadelphia Electric Company – Knoxville Utilities Board – Kansas City Power and Light – Wisconsin Public Service – Northern Ireland Electicity – Yunan Power – Oncor – Aroura Energy – Tenaga Nasional – ESTA Utilities
  7. 7. What is Gtechnology / GElectric  Gtechnology is Commercial Off-The-Shelf Software  GElectric is the Industry Ware (Model) built on top of Gtechnology : Metadata (Oracle) and windows DLLs  Microsoft .NET Framework
  8. 8. The Difference  Is a Utilities Solutions  Is not a CAD Application with a Utility Plug-In  Utilities Data Integrity is built in : Rules Based  Fast Display : Dynamic Display Cache  User Geometry and Attribute data are written and stored together in RDBMS  Geometry Data is Open : Oracle Spatial  Strong Integration Capability with Other Systems
  9. 9. The Difference  Unique Identifier : G3E_FID, across ALL data layers  Real World Data, not lines and points, but Electric Cables and Switches  Relationships, Validation and Functional Interfaces ensure real world model – Only connect a cable to a switch – Only mount a Over-Head Transformer to a Pole
  10. 10. Benefits  Closer Collaboration between Departments, especially Operations and Planning, e.g. via redlines  Planning data is Enterprise enabled; everyone can see  Better Integration with Other Systems  Data Integrity  Accurate Costing, e.g. cable length  Accurate Asset Management / Tagging  Increased Productivity at all levels; – Reduce / No Double Entry – Planners workflows can be streamlined – Operations and Planning work on the same data
  11. 11. Life Cycle Management  Manage the Scheme / Job  Job State : Proposed, In-Progress, Completed  Integrates with Inventory / Store, Financial System (SAP)  Features can have different states, e.g. Demolished (manhole), Recovered (cable), In-Service (switch)  Long-Term-Transaction  Different Versions of a Plan, “what if scenarios”  Is not Oracle Workspace; versioning
  12. 12. Schematics  Dynamic generation of schematic.  Schematic diagrams are displayed in a regular interactive map window. This allows window operations, such as tiling or cascading, and view operations, such as zooming in or out. Also the user can control the display of the schematic through the Display Control.
  13. 13. Duct Space Management  Comprehensive  Manhole / Pipe (Conduit) / Duct  Manhole Wall  Lay-down
  14. 14. Simulation and Analysis Software  Data Export to Simulation and Analysis Software  SynerGee Electric  High Quality of data helps to reduce data cleansing needed for Simulation and Analysis.
  15. 15. G/Technology Supported Environments  Windows Server 2008, 32-bit and 64-bit  Windows 7 - SP1  Internet Explorer 8/9 (IE8)  Oracle 11g  Identity and Access Management Services: SSO
  16. 16. G/Technology Latest Features  New functionality in G/Technology is primarily focused on improving memory management. Users who have complex configurations and workflows have exceeded virtual memory (user space limit) after working with the G/Technology desktop for a few hours.  Solutions that reduce memory use are made to the software in the following areas:
  17. 17. G/Technology Latest Features  Changing access to several metadata tables for both the core software and the public API  Removing queries and traces that are no longer used  Attaching large CAD files (DGN and DWG)  Validating job edits  Selecting fenced areas  Editing features  Editing common attributes  NetViewer performance improvement  Internet Explorer 9 (IE9)
  18. 18. G/Technology Latest Features  Translucency of Lines/Areas  Raster Transparent Colors - SP2  Open Geospatial Consortium‘s (OGC) Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Feature Service (WFS)  .NET API Enhancements  Schematics options: – As temporary geometries – Created and displayed as detail graphic components of the features that they represent.
