Track: Electric Utilities
Authors: Wayne Atkinson, Shrikant Mate, Brandon Clark
This paper will detail Alabama Power Company’s (APCO) efforts to ensure the spatial integrity of their entire GIS Distribution Network while circumventing the need for a field inventory. We will also highlight how APCO was able to build on the spatial accuracy of their GIS Network model, graphically integrating their entire Customer Database and creating a real-time connection between IDMS that allows for predictive analysis, disaster preparedness, and gains operational efficiency.
