Prairie Power selects OSI to implement cooperative SCADA system
November 4, 2016 - Open Systems International, Inc. (OSI) has been selected by Prairie Power, Inc. (PPI) to implement a new centralized member cooperative distribution SCADA system capable of collecting data and sharing it between their main and backup control centers, as well as between member distribution cooperatives. PPI has been a user of OSI SCADA technology since 2012.
This SCADA system is based on OSI's monarch platform and is delivered from private servers hosted by PPI. Its features include the advanced functionality presented by OSI's SCADA and Alarm Management System. It will feature a flexible Graphical User Interface, Advanced Calculation Subsystem, Real-time and Historical Trending, Data Engineering and Maintenance Subsystem, Advanced Alarm Management System, Dynamic Tabular Display Subsystem, Advanced Tabular Builder, Communications Front-End Processor, Inter-Control Center Communications Protocol, Open Database Connectivity Interface, and Load Management.
Unlike traditional SCADA system deployments, PPI's system will utilize PPI's secure, private network architecture to deliver a high-performance hosted application suite to Member Cooperatives from a centralized system. This design significantly reduces overall maintenance for both PPI and its members by providing the functionality in a central hosted environment and eliminating the additional administrative overhead of multiple traditional systems.
"Our members are looking forward to having access to this state-of-the-art OSI system without the burden of having to individually maintain their own systems," said Robert Reynolds, PPI's vice president of member cooperative services. "Our members have worked closely with us on the design and implementation of this new OSI system and associated communications equipment. We all look forward to this centralized system being in service in mid-November."
