System Integration – Approach and Considerations

Distribution Management System (DMS) is the primary system used by distribution center controllers to operate the distribution network efficiently while improving safety, reliability, asset protection and service quality. With the evolution of Smart Grid technologies the traditional scenario of managing the network is undergoing a rapid change. A large number of electric distribution utilities are evaluating the business case for integrating their three main operational systems, SCADA, OMS and DMS. The integration of these systems is now referred to as an Integrated Distribution Management System (IDMS).

This brochure gives an overview on the role of SI in IDMS and how to take IDMS to a cloud.
