My name is Alex, I am a Power System Operator at the New York Independent
System Operator (NYISO). pecifically I work at the Real Time Coordination Desk.
I have been with the NYISO for 4 years and I am relatively competent using PI
displays. I decided this course would be a good idea when my manager asked me
for some data regarding the power system, the information would have only taken
me a few minutes if I knew how to use the PI Data Link in excel, instead I
ended up using a PI process display and getting the exact data needed took me
over an hour. I am hoping that the course will give me the experience and
knowledge I need to complete such tasks much quicker and more efficiently.
I am not new to online learning; I currently hold a BS in Nuclear Engineering
Technologies from Excelsior College and am enrolled in two online college
courses while working for a BS in Electrical Engineering. Before the NYISO I
spent ten years as a Nuclear Reactor Operator in the Navy. I look forward to
learning from everyone else’s experiences.
I'm Peter, an Application Support Analyst at Peak Reliability. I'm fairly new to the PI system, having started creating/modifying PI displays that visualize parts of the Western Interconnection, at the start of this year. I hope to be able to quickly create reports for data requests and to gain an overall better understanding of the PI system.
I wonder if you work in Washington or Colorado? A colleague of mine, Mike Hagen moved from the NYISO out to the Colorado control room late last year, any chance you know him?
I'm working in Colorado. He does work here at Peak in the control room in the same office, but I currently don't interact with him much.
Well if/when you see him again would you be willing to tell him I said hi? I think he'd get a kick out of that.
Greetings, I'm Jeff and I've recently become involved with the PI system. I'm running a little behind, hopefully I can pick up the pace through the next week.
I'm looking to see how I might use DataLink to generate reports and real-time information for end users. Currently the focus will be toward energy management. Anyway, looking forward to the class.
