Electric utilities are facing a multitude of challenges: growing regulatory and customer pressure for increased reliability and reduced carbon emissions, adoption of distributed renewable generation and energy storage, increase in severe weather patterns and network outages, and the inevitability of both an aging workforce and infrastructure.
Schneider Electric’s ADMS is an industry benchmark used by 75 utility companies that serve 70 million end-customers around the world. Gartner recognized Schneider Electric as a leader in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for ADMS, with the highest scores for all three targeted use cases: improved outage response, optimized grid operations and distributed energy resource (DER) management.
Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™ ADMS - a unified DMS, SCADA, OMS, and EMS solution - provides utilities with a modular and flexible platform within a common user experience, data model, integration framework and secure infrastructure.
EcoStruxure™ ADMS enables advanced monitoring, analysis, control, optimization, planning, and training functions allowing utility companies to provide more reliable, safe, and efficient power.
Creating a Reliable and Secure Advanced Distribution Management System
Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) solutions integrate supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technology with other information management to enable greater automated control for more efficient distribution. This paper discusses the security criteria for making SCADA systems secure and reliable.
