Hybrid display with Christie projection increases Idaho Power's situational awareness
Servicing over 500,000 customers over a 24,000 square mile area – with 24 generation facilities, including 17 hydroelectric generation facilities – Idaho Power ensures that its constituents have the hydroelectric power to run their homes and businesses without interruption. When Idaho Power was transitioning facilities, it took this opportunity to upgrade its existing control center’s monitoring system.
Gary Felton, Chief Dispatcher, Load Serving Operations, remembers the fi rst demonstration they saw of a new control room display concept, “When we saw the Scadaboard solution in action, we were intrigued by its capabilities and thought it would be a good fi t for our new operations center. We wanted to maintain a mapboard design, and could see a benefi t in projecting additional, dynamic content onto the static information for even greater situational understanding and awareness.”
