Georgia Power Company Distribution Viewer
Georgia Power Company (a Southern Company subsidiary) uses NaviGate to display maps about facilities, customers, outages, and network status. Data from the GIS is automatically loaded into a high-performance Oracle database for data management and display. The system also links to data about customers directly from the corporate Customer Information System and the two Outage Management Systems from Oracle Corporation. In addition to distribution facilities data, data about transmission facilities (from the GPC Transmission Department) is displayed, together with substation one-line diagrams and aerial photos of every transmission structure in the GPC system. Users can search for objects using dozens of different search criteria, including facility numbers (e.g., switch number or transformer number), customer name or address, substation names, districts, intersections, and many more.
The system supports hundreds of users, including distribution engineers, reliability engineers, outage managers, joint use managers, and many other people. Users can not only view maps and diagrams on the screen, but also print high-quality engineering drawings using the NaviGate Printing Module. Engineers and system operators can also use DistView to conveniently retrieve AutoCAD drawings (in either DWG or DWF format) and PDF format schematics of substations and circuits. Facilities managers and GIS personnel are also using the powerful NaviGate database to improve the quality of the company's GIS data.
