About the Book:
The use of GIS in power system has greatly enhanced the efficiency in energy sector. Analysis such as load flow, network planning, conductor reconfiguration, selection of outage areas, optimum path finding, the profile analysis, and the cost estimation can all be done using GIS. Electric utilities are realizing the benefits of GIS technology in the management of facilities for engineering, construction operations, and maintenance and services purposes. Problems of planning in distribution system can be solved by using GIS methods and specific techniques.For maximum value, GIS should become an integrated application at the utility. Many business processes or systems are impacted by and dependent upon a reliable GIS, including field design or staking, outage management systems (OMS), outage management prediction, line personnel maps, system planning, electric system modeling, inventory systems, asset accounting, and others. This book presents GIS application in load flow analysis of electrical distribution sector. The practical case study and data are presented. The book also explain features of GIS software.
