The Power of Mobility—A Smarter Grid

PRISM mobile applications offer persistence of data even in the event of communication disruption by utilizing crew and public facing tools to support operations.

PRISM mobile tools are offered within two primary product families. The two product families, GridVu and POWR, are mutually exclusive, and may be purchased separately and added to the PRISM DMS or OMS at any time.

POWR and GridVu products function on iPad/Tablet/PCs and Smart Phone using an iOS, Android or Windows OS. Browser support for a single code line is provided for platform agnostic browsers: Chrome 10+, Safari 5 +. Check with ACS prior to using a different version or another browser.

GridVu

Due to a lack of confidence in the dependability of wireless network communications to the server, POWR uses advanced browser technology, such as HTML5, in order to accomplish data persistence. Non-HTML5 supported browsers, such as IE8 and IE9, are loaded with a third-party local database in order to provide persistence.

GridVu solutions are designed to provide general DMS and OMS incident summary and location information via the internet to utility personnel and to the public. The information is presented in icon form, overlaid on a Google map to show their geographic location relative to the network being viewed.

GridVu Public 

GridVu Public Display

GridVu public is a public facing view showing network outages that provides normal restoration information relative to the customer, such as number of outages, number of customers affected, restoration time, etc. This data informs the public and media of utility restoration progress.

GridVu Network 

GridVu Network Display

GridVu network displays general network information overlaid on the Google map. It displays the electrical network topology, as well as the location and status of network information such as tickets, work orders, crews, switch plan steps, and outage reports (e.g., calls or AMI).

POWR


PRISM OMS Workforce Resource (POWR) was designed to provide users with personalized OMS information for outage and non-outage work. Its mobile capabilities make it a useful tool for network switch plan assignments for work crews on the go. POWR is available on iOS, Android, and Windows OS with Chrome 10+ and Safari 5+. For other browsers or versions, check with ACS for compatibility.

POWR Mobile Task List

POWR mobile is a personalized task list of all work that is assigned to each crew. The job types that are supported include:

  • Each outage “Ticket” has an interactive user interface
  • Each non-outage (planned) work order has an interactive user interface
  • Customer call information is available as a view–only mode.
  • Each switch step assigned to the crew is available as a view–only mode.
  • Miscellaneous work forms, not listed here, are available with an interactive user interface

POWR Survey 

POWRsurvey is an application designed to enable the operator to visually manage the complexity of assessing storm damage.  When a network is severely damaged, whether in whole or in part, POWRsurvey enables an operator to dispatch a crew, using the mobile application, to the area of the damaged feeder to perform a manual record or “survey” of the damage. The details of all assessed damage are uploaded to the control center, where the operator visually organizes and manages it for reconstruction and restoration.

POWR Switch 

POWRswitch allows users of PRISM SwitchPlan Manager to employ a mobile viewer that enables them to easily access all the details of any switch procedure in the field.

Power outages leave a 20th century public without access to most items that make their lives run.
