Xcel Energy has been utilizing the PI System for over a decade. In the past few years the use of the PI System has accelerated through an Enterprise Agreement in Transmission Operations, Commercial Operations and a growing adoption in Generation. This presentation will demonstrate the use of the technology in all three areas, showing how the PI System is critical to strategic initiatives across Xcel Energy including Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics for Energy Supply, Real Time Situational Awareness in Transmission Operations, improved Wind Forecasting and Executive level dashboards. With the value Xcel Energy has realized, a vision is in place to expand the use of the PI System in Generation, and investigation is beginning around a true PI System infrastructure that would enable Xcel Energy to utilize the PI System to manage all operational and asset data across the entire organization.
