A real-time, integrated, visual response system
Wide area situational awareness helps utilities and ISOs understand the complex interaction between the network of distributed assets, vegetation, state-estimation results, synchrophasor data, transmission line status, and other data collected.
Operators use Space-Time Insight’s WASA Composite to visualize the grid, determining the risk to infrastructure of approaching weather, and monitoring unresponsive telemetry and points of communication failures.
By providing a thorough understanding of the situation, the WASA Composite prepares operators to take the appropriate actions, be they deactivating assets, performing triage, or taking other remedial actions. Operators are presented with screens to ensure they follow regulatory procedures and meet compliance reporting requirements.
When assets fail or start to fail, operators need to know immediately. The WASA Composite uses alerts and real-time analysis of key data such as voltage instability and phase-angle differences to keep operators current. They also have the information on hand to assess the impact of a disaster on safety and the operation as a whole.
