    Challenges

    Effective outage management.
    Whether caused by aging assets, extreme weather, or growing energy demand, outages are increasingly challenging to manage. As the market grows more competitive and regulations intensify, outages are also becoming more costly. To best serve your customers, it’s more important than ever for electric utilities to minimize the disruption and costs of outages while improving network reliability, safety and customer satisfaction.
    • Solutions

      Schneider Electric’s OMS is a comprehensive, cost-effective outage management system that helps you reduce outage duration by locating outages faster and giving you better information for directing your response. OMS uses the most current network state and an advanced prediction engine to help you predict and respond to outages in a more informed and efficient manner. Now, dispatchers have real-time network information for accurately evaluating how an outage impacts customers, how to prioritize responses, effectively assign crews and better determine possibilities for backfeeding power.
