Feb 06, 2023
29A, Upper Level
Utility University




This course will provide information on 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. 


  • 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 

Attendees should acquire:

  • System integration guidelines and challenges 
  • Current vendor offerings 
  • Implementation strategy
