OSI to help Alliant Energy enhance distribution management

August 8, 2019 — Open Systems International, Inc. (OSI) has been selected by Alliant Energy to supply an Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) built on OSI’s operational technology (OT) OpenXphere enterprise architecture. Alliant Energy has been using OSI technology for several years for various OT applications. This project expands the distribution management capabilities of the OSI platform to create an grid management system facilitating distribution operations and system reliability.

As part of their grid modernization plans, Alliant Energy foresaw a need to operate and maintain the electric distribution system supported by an enterprise-level strategic initiative to enable consumer grid and market access. Alliant Energy engaged OSI in a design and discovery phase to develop a long-term strategic roadmap for an enterprise OT platform that provides all distribution grid automation capabilities and leverages renewable resources to optimize distribution operations. The OSI ADMS project is the cornerstone of Alliant Energy’s strategic roadmap for grid modernization.

Built on OSI’s secure real-time monarch platform, this ADMS implementation will feature a full complement of Advanced Distribution Management applications, Switching Order Management, an Outage Management System, Mobile Crew Application, Distributed Energy Resource Management, Distribution Operator Training Simulator, and integration with other Alliant Energy enterprise applications.
