GE Intelligent Platforms provides a full complement of practical solutions for:
Many cooperatives provide services to the most rural areas, and the large distances between customers and substations can increase restoration times and routine maintenance cycles. GE’s Proficy Grid Manager increases visibility and control of these remote assets through an easy-to-configure SCADA system that interfaces with many other systems and can provide event notification via email or text messaging to foremen and supervisors who are “on the go.”
Proficy Grid Manager enables a common SCADA platform that has industry-specific software for each utility yet standardized servers and software platforms—allowing for better use of IT staff by eliminating the complexity of different types of SCADA systems.
As federal utilities intertie the bulk transmission to hydro and other resources, and have facilities usually large enough to warrant local SCADA controls that communicate back to a central control center, Proficy Grid Manager provides local and control room solutions as well as monitoring of substation transformers for effective lifecycle management.
For operations such as hospitals, universities, military bases, industrial facilities, and ports, Proficy Grid Manager provides the ability to centrally monitor the electric system and receive alarms at the control center or through email—providing busy engineers with convenient anywhere, anytime access to the information they need.
