301:Prediction of Cold Load Pickup using AMI and SCADA Data

Usually when a distribution circuit is restored after an extended outage, the load demand is greater than before the outage as a result of loss of diversity in the system. As all the loads are brought online at the same time and the state of the equipment is “cold”, a very high load demand is … Continued

401: Calculating SAIDI from AMI Data and the Progression from Raw Data to Usable Insight

SAIDI is an important metric used by all electric utilities and has historically been reported through customer calls and field workers. The outages may be recorded as longer or shorter than the actual duration due to delays in reporting lights-out events and restoration progress. Outage records may also erroneously include or exclude customers due to … Continued
