PCI’s Outage Management solution is an integrated set of applications that streamline work processes and improve communications between field and operations personnel. It allows generation and transmission asset owners (and operators) the ability to comprehensively manage all outages and their lifecycles, from planning and operations all the way through reporting to ISO scheduling entities, NERC, etc.
Forced events to minor derates are supported and their detailed information is shared with market operators and regulatory authorities before outages occur and after-the-fact. PCI’s system also tracks the status of requests during different outage phases and allows for quick review and approval. Further, analytics are included every step of the way for all events. On the transmission side, PCI provides a comprehensive tool kit to manage all grid outages while meeting all NERC requirements.
Log and track any asset issues. Record chronologies of daily business events, perform regulatory compliance, and track internal workflows.
Automate the scheduling process so users can import, review and modify schedule data using PCI’s system or other applications (if desired). Users can verify schedule consistency with outages or derates.
