Our client’s executive managers viewed power generation forecast data based on a series of daily emails and spreadsheets. The information presented was used to base sound judgements regarding generation/load positions, but was difficult to interpret.
Our client had a large amount of generation unit data in silos. Unfortunately, there was not any integration in place to review the status of a generation unit over its lifetime.
Our client viewed a web dashboard that displayed real time readings of transmission and generation information on a public website. The information was presented graphically to the user through dials and linear gauges.
Our client had recently started participating in MISO South having previously been participating in Entergy pre-merger. Since joining MISO South, Unit Commitment and Economic Dispatch were producing less than optimal results.
