Total Integration of GIS in the Electric Distribution Industry
Track: Electric and Gas
Author(s): Poul Westmose
NESA, Denmark's largest electric distribution utility, has over the past couple of years integrated GIS in all of its business processes.
- GIS is used for facility planning, design and construction, fully integrated with SAP.
- NESA's call center uses GIS for tracking outages and dispatching crews, fully integrated with SAP and MDSI (Mobile Dispatch System).
- NESA's distribution network (containing about 7,000 transformer stations) is monitored using GIS integrated with the SCADA system.
- GIS is used in NESA's service trucks for localizing the distribution network.
Business processes and system integration will be treated in detail in the presentation.
