Solving Operational Technology (OT) System Integration Challenges

 

Series: Grid Modernization and Energy Storage
Date: 01-21-2021
Time: 10:30 AM – 11:15 AM CST

Every day, the number of devices and applications connecting to the grid grows exponentially. Each new class of devices and systems brings its own requirements, further compounding the complexity and challenge of ensuring reliable and safe power. Advancements in technologies, trends in customer distributed energy resource (DER) adoption and expanding clean energy goals are prompting reevaluation of current distribution planning practices. They all point to an increasingly complex distribution grid; as well as bring electric and technical considerations to light when considering the traditional distribution grid’s capabilities and planning processes. This panel will share grid operators’ real-world examples of OT system integration approaches designed to meet these operational challenges while planning for the grid of tomorrow.

In this session you will learn about designing your OT architecture to:

  1. Simplify integration
  2. Futureproof your system
  3. Mix and match best-in-class applications
