Atlanta – April 4, 2017 — Advanced Control Systems (ACS) announced today that they have successfully commissioned two state of the art distribution control centers which will manage network operations for a city of more than 18 million people and more than 4.5 million metered electricity customers. Located in Bangalore in southern India, the distribution utility has embarked on an ambitious smart grid modernization program designed to elevate customer service by leveraging automation technology throughout its asset base.  Central to the success of this multi-year project is the deployment of ACS’ leading PRISM real-time software platform, including SCADA, an Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS), and an Outage Management System (OMS).
