Survalent Developing Distribution State Estimation Software for Electric Utilities

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO — August 29, 2017 —Survalent, a leading provider of advanced distribution management systems (ADMS), today announced that it is developing an innovative, new data analytics tool that will more accurately predict the state of an electric grid based on detailed network connectivity modelling and telemetry from field devices. Funded in part by a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Energy’s Smart Grid Fund, Survalent’s Distribution State Estimation (DSE) engine will be tested at Oakville Hydro where it will be used in conjunction with Survalent FLISR to establish a self-healing network in the utility’s service territory.

“This project presents a tremendous opportunity for us to accelerate the development of a competitive, state-of-the-art distribution management system application for the electric utility market,” said Steve Mueller, president and chief executive officer of Survalent. “Utilities like Oakville Hydro will soon be able to leverage our advanced DSE engine to improve FLISR load transfer calculations, resulting in less outage time, increased network reliability, and greater customer satisfaction.”

The new DSE tool will extend the functionality of Survalent’s existing Distribution Power Flow (DPF) application to deliver a more accurate estimate of the network state in any given switching configuration, while taking into account smart-grid technologies. By providing more detailed insight into power flows and power quality, DSE will increase grid situational awareness and make it possible for fault location, isolation and service restoration (FLISR) systems to improve self-healing outcomes.

“We do our best to prepare for different load and outage scenarios, but we’re still very reactive when it comes to day-to-day load management,” said Jeff Mocha, Director of Smart Grid and Asset Management at Oakville Hydro. “With this application, we’ll be able to fine-tune our switching practices in advance, and maintain optimal voltage and load. From a systems perspective, it will be an enhanced level of capability.”

Oakville Hydro currently operates a progressive 24/7 Control Room correlating smart meter information with automated distribution equipment to drive efficient system operation. Driving towards additional system enhancement, Oakville Hydro is in the process of gathering detailed information about network components and augmenting Geographic Information System records, all of which will be used to generate a high-quality network connectivity model that the DSE and FLISR applications can reference. The real-time grid automation enabled by DSE and FLISR will provide a foundation for additional smart-grid strategies at Oakville Hydro, such as the integration of renewable energy solutions into their network.

According to Mocha, “This is a transition from a ‘wires company’ philosophy, where we just connect supply and demand and restore when there’s a problem, to actively taking part in energy management within our system.”

Oakville Hydro’s implementation of Survalent FLISR with the DSE application is expected to reduce the duration and extent of power outages, a significant benefit for customers – especially those with large commercial and industrial operations.

Like SurvalentONE SCADA and OMS, applications which Oakville Hydro currently operates, the new DSE application will be fully integrated within Survalent’s ADMS platform, allowing utilities around the world to operate the new system using their existing database and familiar graphical interface.

Survalent expects to wrap up the DSE pilot project at Oakville Hydro by June of 2018.

May 2017 – Important Notice on Ransomware Outbreak Targeting Windows SMB Flaw

Update

Last week, a new ransomware was detected by Microsoft that spreads by leveraging vulnerabilities that have been previously fixed. The ransomware identified as WannaCrypt (also known as WannaCry, WanaCrypt0r, WCrypt, or WCRY) used publicly available exploit code for the patched SMB “EternalBlue” vulnerability, CVE-2017-0145, which can be triggered by sending a specially crafted packet to a targeted SMBv1 server.

While security updates are automatically applied in most computers, some users and enterprises may delay deployment of patches. The ransomware appears to have affected computers that have not applied the patch for these vulnerabilities. Microsoft reminds users to install MS17-010 if they have not already done so.

What to Do

Make sure that you have installed the correct Windows updates related to MS17-010 to address this security concern for the version of your operating system. There are no known issues with running Survalent’s software with these Windows updates.

If you wish to disable SMB as an added measure of security, Survalent recommends testing the impact this would have on your SCADA/ADMS environment. Depending on your network setup, you may lose access to certain devices such as shared drives or network printers.

For more information on the ransomware, visit Microsoft’s TechNet Blog.

Huntsville Utilities Completes Smooth Transition to SurvalentONE SCADA

Electricity, gas, and water systems controlled through a single, economical ADMS platform

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO — May 24, 2017 —Survalent, a leading provider of advanced distribution management systems (ADMS), today announced that Huntsville Utilities has successfully deployed the SurvalentONE supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for its electric, gas, and water systems. Huntsville Utilities is a municipal utility in Huntsville, Alabama, with approximately 180,000 electricity customers, 51,000 gas customers, and 93,000 water customers.The adoption of SurvalentONE SCADA is just the first step in Huntsville’s multi-year plan to modernize their distribution networks.

“Huntsville Utilities is working hard to position themselves for the future,” commented Steve Mueller, president and chief executive officer at Survalent. “Our modular SurvalentONE ADMS platform has given them the tools and flexibility they need to realize their smart-grid vision in manageable stages, while at the same time maximizing operational efficiency with a single control system for electricity, gas, and water.”

Huntsville’s old SCADA system was at the end of its lifecycle and lacked many features that operators in modern control rooms take for granted. In contrast to the outgoing system, SurvalentONE SCADA offered rich functionality including support for online database edits with no downtime, no failovers, and no scanning delays.

“This was our biggest upgrade in 30 years,” said Manuel Nin, communications supervisor at Huntsville Utilities. “With workers at three different utilities, plus contractors, the IT department, and the management of each utility, a significant amount of coordination was required.” From start to finish, the SCADA changeover took about 6 months to complete.

To ensure a successful transition, Survalent spent six weeks onsite at Huntsville Utilities ironing out every detail with stakeholders in the electric, gas, and water divisions. The engineering team worked offsite over the course of several months to complete the database and graphics conversion. Survalent then provided training to operators, dispatchers, and engineers.

Since the changeover, Huntsville has reported higher productivity, citing several reasons:

  • SurvalentONE is both user-friendly and interoperable with Windows-based applications such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, simplifying report creation and other communications activities. As an example, users no longer need to call the IT department every time they want to reproduce a network diagram.
  • Management, operations, and field personnel can now monitor network status from anywhere via the Internet.
  • A new naming convention implemented by Survalent has made it easier for novice and experienced users alike to identify network elements.

In the near future, Huntsville Utilities plans to build on the new SCADA system by implementing a GIS-based connectivity model of the electric network. This model will enable Huntsville to roll out other ADMS applications for real-time load flow management, Volt/VAR optimization, FLISR, and outage management, all in concert with AMI technology upgrades.
