This Learning Lab provides information electric utilities need to plan, integrate, and commission an advanced distribution management system (ADMS) that includes functions for electrical optimization, outage management, DER Management, and other advanced applications.

Learning Objectives
•    Key terms and definitions
•    Basic and advanced functionality of the latest ADMS (DMS, OMS, DERMS) including the concept of a “DER-Enabled” ADMS
•    OMS, ADMS, and DERMS architecture alternatives 
•    Effective implementation strategies and internal resource requirements
•    ADMS business case

Knowledge, skills and/or capabilities that attendees should acquire through this course.  
•    System integration guidelines and challenges
•    Current vendor offerings
•    Implementation strategy

Who should attend this course?
•    Electric utility operators, engineers and managers involved in the operation, design and optimization of electric distribution systems
•    Representatives of electric distribution companies that are implementing or planning to implement ADMS and DERMS functionality
•    Information technology and business process personnel responsible for system integration and transitioning to modern distribution control centers
•    Financial personnel interested in the business case for deploying ADMS/DERMS

Prerequisite skills, knowledge, certifications
•    Knowledge of electric distribution operations
•    Business processes for managing customer outages
•    General knowledge of communication media for remote monitoring and control of electric power apparatus

Key Takeaways
•    Insights on the importance of ADMS/DERMS for optimal distribution system efficiency, reliability, an overall performance
