Power Outage Management

PCI’s Outage Management System (OMS) includes full support for all outages and their lifecycles, from planning, bidding, and operations all the way through to reporting.  Forced events to minor temperature derates are supported, as are communications with ISOs/RTOs in order to provide them with detailed information before outages and after-the-fact.  PCI also tracks the status of requests during different outage phases and allows you to quickly view approval status.  Analytics are included at every stage for all events.

Currently, PCI supports outage scheduling in CAISO, ERCOT, MISO, PJM, as well as SPP, and will incorporate other markets in the near future.
