12/18/2013 – Today marked a BIG DAY in the operation of Loup Valleys electric distribution system – SCADA made it’s debut! For the first time since the utilities inception “windshield time” was not required to know the status of systems within the substation. Using SCADA Nexus each company employee with proper credentials could now securely view and know the status via web pages on any mobile device, laptop, PC or tablet.
Start up of the first substation system occurred on 12/18 and the first operational one-line dashboards went “live” today. Befitting a modern utility deploying SMART GRID and using Cloud Server technology even the one-lines have a new look and feel compared to the old concepts. Check out a representative Substation Dashboard from Loup Valleys below. Contact Ron Sandoz at Loup Valleys RPPD for feedback on his experiences so far with SCADA Nexus and RAI.
1/24/2014 – Update – Today the second substation went “Live” for Loup Valleys. One more is “Under Construction” and should start up shortly and plans are in place for adding substations over the next few years.
