OSI Supplies Volt/VAR Control Systems to North Carolina Electric Memberships

Open Systems International (OSI) was selected by three members of the North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation (NCEMC) to implement a new Volt/VAR control (VVC) system for each member including: Union Power Cooperative, Randolph EMC and Cape Hatteras EMC. These new VVC systems are based on the OSI Spectra Advanced Distribution Management System platform and fully integrate with their existing OSI monarch SCADA systems. The VVC implementation supports traditional Volt/VAR Control as well as Conservation Voltage Reduction. The solution interfaces various systems including the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) using the MultiSpeak standard.
