Open Systems International to enhance energy management for Tucson power company

January 23, 2020 — Open Systems International (OSI) has been awarded a contract by UNS Energy, the parent company of Tucson Electric Power (TEP), to supply an Energy Management System built on OSI's monarch operational technology (OT) platform to manage TEP’s generation and transmission operations. This will replace TEP’s legacy EMS system in mid-2021. TEP has previously contracted with OSI to implement OSI’s Advanced Distribution Management System with Outage Management capabilities for control of their distribution networks. Following the addition of this EMS, they will have transitioned to a single OT vendor and technology, streamlining their operations, maintenance, and updates for the entirety of their generation, transmission, and distribution operations.

In addition to the Transmission and Generation SCADA functionality of the OSI  monarch platform, this EMS implementation will feature a full complement of generation and energy management applications, including the following: Real-time and Study Network Analysis, Common Information Model Interface, Operator Training Simulator, Reserve Monitoring, Transaction Management System, Dynamic Network Visualizer, Graphical CIM-based Model Editor, OSI Transmission Security Monitor, Generation Control and Dispatch, AGC Performance Monitoring, and Operational Planning and Scheduling.

Tucson Electric Power serves more than 424,000 electrical customers in the Tucson metropolitan area
