In addition to live webinars, Survalent has a variety of on-demand and pre-recorded webinars that you can watch at your convenience.

WEBINAR REPLAYSaving nearly $1 million with Dynamic Voltage Regulation

One of the biggest expenses of many cooperatives is their monthly power demand. Since 2013, Jackson Purchase Energy Corporation has been using dynamic voltage reduction to reduce that monthly demand. The utility uses the tools available in Survalent software to predict their monthly peak, reduce voltage within specific limits and, in turn, reduce their monthly expenses. Using the Survalent Excel Add-in, Jackson Purchase Energy Corporation estimates a savings of $925,000 since the start of this project seven years ago. Attendees will hear how Jackson Purchase Energy Corporation set up their system for DVR and how DVR has impacted their system. They will also learn about key issues they’ve encountered, how they’ve addressed those issues, and the effect they have on a DVR system.

Survalent’s Offline Environments – Which Are Right For You?

Since the ADMS is one of the most critical platforms in the utility’s ecosystem, there are certain functions/tasks that utilities may want to offload to a non-production system to avoid overloading or adding risk to the ADMS. These include training, testing and editing. Survalent understands these needs and has four different types of offline environments available depending on the utility’s needs. If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between each or thought of adding an offline environment but weren’t sure which was right for your utility, this is the webinar for you.

Watch this replay where Daniel Nechay, Senior Product Manager at Survalent, answers all your questions about Survalent’s offline applications. You’ll learn the objectives of each application, discover their key features, and hear the unique benefits each delivers to utilities. This webinar will discuss:

- Project Development System
- Quality Assurance System
- Operator Training Simulator
- Study Mode

Faults are Unavoidable but Faster Restoration is in your Control

Whether it’s before, during, or after a fault, there are steps you can take to minimize outage impacts and significantly reduce durations.

Watch this webinar replay to learn how SurvalentONE Distribution Contingency Analysis, FLISR and LOV, and Protection Settings Manager can help you improve reliability and customer satisfaction.

In our demo, you’ll learn how FLISR and LOV operate, including the options available for FLISR to handle single-phase faults based on the utility’s preferences. You’ll hear how FLISR can account for hot line tags and neutral-fault detection.

Learn how you can:
- Proactively monitor locations to ensure that there is sufficient contingency available to recover from a fault, and simulate FLISR or LOV events to optimize decision making and fault responses
- Configure FLISR and LOV to either automatically isolate the fault or loss of supply and restore power to customers outside the isolated area within seconds or provide the operator with the recommended switching actions to review, depending on your comfort level
- Ensure your relay protection settings are always correct for the current network configuration

Gain efficiencies and improve situational awareness by leveraging GIS data in your control room

Utility control rooms rely on maps to manage power distribution and quickly restore power to areas affected by outages. In this informative session, you’ll learn why integrating your GIS data into your SurvalentONE SCADA, OMS, and DMS applications can increase situational awareness, improve operational performance, and reduce operational costs.

Our guest speaker, Amy Grice, System Engineering Manager at Peninsula Light Company will share her rationale for importing GIS into the utility’s SCADA system, important implementation issues to consider, and how Peninsula Light has benefitted.

In this webinar you’ll gain practical insights and learn how you can:

-Combine real-time SCADA data with a geographic view of the electrical network enhances control room productivity and performance
-Validate and import your GIS data into your ADMS
-Streamline your GIS integration by evaluating data and visualization errors, and resolving them before they go live
