Data Analytics at American Electric Power Presentation to: SWEDE May 8, 2014 Tom Weaver, PE
Business Analytics is the convergence of three key areas Business Opportunities Working with OpCos, define business opportunities or problems we are trying to solve in 3 areas ‐ Distribution ‐ Meter ‐ Consumer Technical Solutions Define the technical solutions that meet business needs for ‐ Data capture ‐ Data storage ‐ Complex processing ‐ Visualization Commercial Solutions Define the commercial relationships that are required to make this journey successful ‐ Build vs. Buy ‐ Collaboration with others AEP Business Solution Collaboration is vital as considerations are inter-connected
Standard Reports Ad Hoc Reports Query Drilldown Alerts Statistical Analysis Forecasting Predictive Modeling Optimization Degree of Intelligence (Competitive Advantage) Analytic Capabilities Analytic CapabilityAnswers the Questions Standard Reports What happened? When did it happen? Ad Hoc Reports How many? How often? Where? Query Drilldown Or OLAP Where exactly is the problem? How to I find the answers? Alerts/Monitoring When should I react? What actions are needed now? Statistical Analysis Why is this happening? What opportunities am I missing? Forecasting What if the trends continue? How much is needed? When will it be needed? Predictive Modeling What will happen next? How will it affect my business? Optimization How do we do things better? What is the best decision for a complex problem? What does Business Analytics Mean?
S O U R C E D A T A – Conceptual View MACSS (MCS&OPS) AMI(UIQ&LGCC) MDM Operational Data Store TERS DA System(PI) OPERATIONAL PowerOn CES Data PEV Data PeopleSoft GIS Started simple pending maturity of vendor solutions Analytics framework today SWAMI AMIGO Metering Analytics Needs Analytic Capability Availability of Data for Load Research and Development of Detection Reports (Hot Sockets, Etc) Standard Service Order Processing Process/System Monitoring Standard GUI for the integration of meter events and orders Standard SAS
AMI Meter Temperature Monitoring Monitoring 502,310 meters. 85% accurate, 520 Issues out of 612 Field Orders. Next Steps for on-going Improvements: Automate monitoring. Change cutoff per season for more accuracy. Optimize parameters?
Site Genie/Quality of Service Report Use SAS to decode then analyze the vectors. Broken CT and PT on transformer rated meters, poor connections under billing of commercial customers. New customer validation of service, saved Ohio 208 site visits this year. IssuesPopulation Ohio385,7760.66% PSO191,7181.11% I&M0473
Description of IssueNumber Corrected Service Type in Meter8 Bad Cable2 Service Incorrect in MACSS2 Bad PT2 Blown Transformer Fuse1 Theft1 No Issues1 Total Feedback17 Voltage Magnitude Analysis – Transformer Rated Meters Next Step: Create automated programs to analyze.
FUTURE: Energy Diversion Detection – Monitor Load Profile Analyze the Voltage and kWh of Load Profile Flag premises with high voltage drop but low kWh compared to neighbors. Program flagging premises documented on the wrong transformer.
FIRST: Clean Up AEP’s MACSS Data – Correlate Premises to Proper Transformer 2179 South
