Advanced Control Systems™ (ACS™) employees, for the last 40 years, have started each day thinking about the needs of their electric power customers. For the last several years, the electric industry has been and is in transition. Along with increasing competitiveness, extreme weather conditions, system security and resiliency requirements, ACS provides utilities with real-time, on-time solutions with leading edge technology for the modern grid.
“We believe at ACS that energy is foundational to our civilization and our utility customers trust us as the go-to real-time energy management solution provider of innovative products and services,” CEO Kevin Sullivan says. “Within energy providers, the control center is the brain allowing utilities intelligent control to increase customer satisfaction, improve reliability with outage restoration while meeting demand with asset optimization.” Sullivan says utilities today ask for an ACS roadmap to help them with safety and reliability, as well as improving communications with consumers. He is a problem solver as he answers questions on how ACS technology can deliver as demand requires, how to help consumers make choices and how utilities can minimize negative impacts while optimizing service and power flow. Utilities trust ACS as a leading manufacturer of advanced automation technology to the global electric power industry, focusing on control center solutions which include supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), advanced distribution management (ADMS), outage management (OMS), energy management (EMS), network simulation and optimization, network display strategies and ergonomic design.
