Event Overview

UMS Substation Best Practices Collaborative's 2022 Annual Conference will focus on utility best practices, tools, and technologies to improve reliability, performance, and carbon footprint.

This conference will provide attendees with a better understanding of advanced condition monitoring, FERC Order No. 2222, Operational Analytics and much more.

As in previous years, the conference will be the Capstone for the program, with participants sharing best practices, networking with their peers, and gaining insights into emergent technologies, tools, and strategies.

Presentation topics

Asset and Risk Management

  • Emergent technologies and use cases

  • Relative ranking of use cases

  • Detailed usage by sub-process

  • Technology solution enablers, decision support, and solution leaders

Impact of Distributed Energy Resources on Substations

  • FERC Order No. 2222: Driving Expansion of Distributed Energy Resources

  • Impact of DER’s on system planning, relay protection, and asset management

  • Grid support energy storage assets and their impacts on substations

  • DER-compatible substation designs

  • Explosion of EV demand vs. local substation capacity

  • Substation readiness for reverse power flows from distributed solar

Data Analytics

  • Operational Analytics - Dashboards for reliability, risk, cost, standards, advanced operational analytics etc.

  • Coordination with UMS Group Asset Analytics Forum - Pooling data across peers (not competitors) in an anonymized and a secure manner to:

    • Create asset make and model performance / failure benchmarks through machine learning based algorithms

    • Improve awareness of vendor performance and reliability

    • Improve analytical capabilities and data utilization by automating high volume / high frequency activities such as data cleansing

    • Develop a standard cross-industry failure taxonomy

Condition Monitoring

  • Communications solutions and capacity to meet demands of escalating data volume from equipment monitoring

  • Emerging solutions and new sensor technology

  • Data structuring and analysis

  • Substation robotics (e.g. Boston Dynamics)

Work & Workforce Management (2022-2023)

  • Managing capital work efficiently

  • Optimum staffing levels and skills mix – (i.e. IEC 61850)

  • Hybrid workforce / combining substation and relay classifications

  • Employee recruitment and retention

  • Affordability and funding for apprenticeship programs

Additional Topics

  • Wildlife outage prevention solutions

  • HV Vacuum (Non-SF6) Breaker Technology – 72kV & Above

  • Touchless vs. Touch-less substations

Who Should Attend?

  • Directors and Managers (Transmission & Substation)
  • Directors and Managers (Utility Technology)
  • Directors and Managers (Asset Management)

Why Participate?

  • Showcase Your Best Practices
  • Learn From Other Utilities
