Managing Real-Time generation, transmission, and distribution outages is a complicated task, with numerous requests, duplicate data processes, and strict requirements. As a result of these complexities, entities, such as Black Hills Corporation, are turning to OATI webOMS to streamline operations and administer outage events.
Following the successful implementation of OATI webOMS at Black Hills Corporation, OATI is offering a detailed case study to aid other companies who are struggling with their Outage Management issues. This case study supplies a model for other organizations to follow as they pursue maximum control and command over their outages.
As detailed in the case study, Black Hills Corporation now has an Outage Management Solution that clearly defines the actions required for a successful outage, identify responsibilities, and keep all stakeholders informed.
“Black Hills Corporation is now equipped with a one-stop-shop solution for gaining full control over transmission outages,” said Sasan Mokhtari, Ph.D., President and CEO of OATI. “This case study provides a blueprint for other utilities looking to take the necessary steps to total Outage Management.”
