Utility owners all recognize the importance of maintaining a strategic plan for their EMS and DMS systems, but are often so busy with maintaining the reliable operation of their current system that they don’t have the time or resources to perform a careful assessment of their current and future needs. PSC solves this problem by working with key stakeholders to capture an all-encompassing view of the utility perspective, before applying our neutral and holistic understanding of EMS system operations derived from supporting numerous utilities around the world.

ATCO Canada knew their own transmission system well – but they wanted to get the whole picture. Because they were familiar with PSC’s expertise in EMS assessment and strategic planning for other utilities in Canada and around the world, including AltaLink in Calgary, ATCO selected PSC to perform a review of ATCO’s transmission system tools and capabilities in order to assess how well the tools were meeting business goals and regulatory and security mandates.

PSC interviewed key stakeholders and compared the ATCO system with peers in the industry and with alternative EMS vendor capabilities to identify current needs and requirements of the EMS and determine whether they were being met by the current systems and tools. The product of this assessment was a 5-year strategy roadmap for the EMS that provided ATCO with the framework they needed to position their EMS for the future.
