The Georgia System Operations Corporation’s (GSOC) Energy Management Infrastructure project involves upgrades to the transmission operations communications and control system, along with new analysis tools for grid operators. GSOC is upgrading the software and hardware platform for their energy control system, which is used to manage the operation of their transmission system and the dispatch of generation resources. Advanced analysis software is also being implemented for improved monitoring, planning, and electricity cost analysis. GSOC expects enhanced transmission planning to reduce the need for ancillary services. GSOC also expects greater accuracy in allocating costs for transmission services. Reductions in generation costs are expected as a result of more efficient dispatch of resources.
