Is there a way to change the lowest level of Outage Prediction to Transformer Level?
Posted on Jul 6, 2016
 

One of the most common errors continuing in the field is completing transformer level outages at the service level.  I have been asked to present a formal request from several managers.   They have proposed we change the lowest level of outage prediction to the transformer level rather than at the service level.  The justification is that we have more transformer level outages than we do service level outages, excepting customer problems.  For customer problems, the issue is of no concern because they take care of themselves.  The managers would like justification as to why we operate InService as we do and why we haven’t change it to the transformer level.


Can anyone please explain in further detail as to why Inservice operates outages the way they do? And how we might go about making this change?

 

Thanks,

Service level outages allow for single outages with a single customer count (and a single call). And, if configured, SingleCustXfmrEvt allows a xfmr level outage to be created if there is truly only one customer associated with the xfmr. Overall, it would be more inaccurate from a count standpoint to have a single call be treated as xfmr level outage if there were more than one customer associated with that xfmr.
