Survalent Helps Mid-Ohio Energy Achieve 64% Reduction in Outage Time

December 13, 2017 -- Survalent, a leading provider of advanced distribution management systems (ADMS), recenty announced that Mid-Ohio Energy Cooperative has reduced outage time by almost two-thirds since adopting SurvalentONE SCADA and OMS applications. Mid-Ohio Energy is a not-for-profit, customer-owned electric utility serving residential and commercial customers throughout central Ohio.

'In recent years, Mid-Ohio has been consistently recognized as one of the five utilities in the state with the lowest annual outage times,' said Mark Terrill, Director of Operations at Mid-Ohio. 'Our System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) dropped from 128 minutes in 2009 to just 46 minutes in 2016, a 64% decrease.'

Mid-Ohio Energy has also earned an 87 rating on the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), the utility's highest-ever score on this important metric.

Terrill attributes Mid-Ohio's success to a sharp increase in operational efficiency driven by SurvalentONE SCADA and OMS. The utility uses Survalent's SCADA system to remotely monitor and operate devices across its 1300-mile network, allowing field crews to pinpoint and fix problems faster than before. Mid-Ohio Energy has integrated SurvalentONE OMS with its smart meter network, customer information system (CIS), and trouble call system (TCS), so customers can now report power outages and receive real-time status updates online or via an app on their mobile phone. The OMS automatically processes outage reports by customers and uses them to quickly determine the location and extent of each outage, speeding up service restoration.
