ComEd/Exelon has been working with PowerWorld Corp. for about two years to integrate PI into PowerWorld and to create new displays utilizing the capability. The result is a special version of the PowerWorld software called PowerWorld Retriever. The first Retriever displays went on-line in ComEd's control room a year ago, and ComEd's transmission planners have recently started using the displays for their own purposes. A description of this work was recently presented at the 2002 Power Systems Computing Conference in Seville, Spain.
