Enabling critical infrastructure operators to effectively communicate and coordinate is vital to the reliability and resiliency of the bulk power system. Building a common relevant operational picture between these entities ensures they have the right tools and habits for effectiveness across all situations.
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is a not-for-profit international regulatory authority whose mission is to assure the effective and efficient reduction of risks to the reliability and security of the grid.
NERC has recently selected the ResilientGrid OS software platform for implementation of Version 3 of the software tool for Situational Awareness for SAFNR v3 initiative, which will cover the North American bulk power system.
The solution monitors the entire grid system from a single screen. It allows operators to understand the full grid system, by integrating data streams from the growing number of grid systems so that everything can be monitored in a single place.
Software and training implementation is currently underway in participating control rooms across North America and the system is expected to be operational and online over the summer.
The move will facilitate important shared situational awareness, providing a geospatial view of the bulk power system, and improved communications capabilities among those entities responsible for the reliability and resiliency of the bulk power system.
The software and training solutions have been specifically designed basing on a human-centered approach that positions operators for success across normal operations and extreme occurrences, so that they can keep critical bulk power system infrastructure effectively operating, according to prnewswire.com.
CEO and founder Michael Legatt noted, “The most important components on the grid are the human beings in control rooms and in the field.” The new product is designed “to set these people for success.”
