It covers magnitudes from major forced outages to minor temperature derates and communicates with ISOs to provide them with detailed outage information, before and after-the-fact. Tracks the status of outage requests during their different phases and quickly see the approval status. PCI Outage Management also includes analytics at every stage for any event.

Of course, PCI Outage Management also includes analysis at every stage and magnitude. PCI GSMS can communicate to ISOs to provide them with outage information, either before or after the fact. The ISO Interface also keeps track of the status of the outage request during the different phases of an outage, including the approval status.

The PCI Outage Management solution supports Outage Scheduling with CAISO, ERCOT, MISO, PJM and SPP and plans to extend this capability to other markets in coming future.
