Parijat Advance Distribution Management System NGSH-0405

Parijat Advance Distribution Management System, NGSH-0405 enables the user / electrical utility to visualize, analyze and improve the decision making process in the given boundaries of distribution utility areas, based on US DOE sponsored solution. NGSH-0405 platform allows for data integration and application development. It enables users to more easily develop and test software applications for distribution system planning, management, control, and operations. NGSH-0405 standardizes the data exchange interfaces between devices in the field, distributed applications in the systems, and applications in the control room. With this standardization, information can flow between systems that have been siloed in the past. This creates a “data fusion” where an advanced data management system can access all data through a common bus (interface), across multiple applications, and execute command functions, all using a common power system model. Parijat’s extensive list of drivers may enable any SCADA system or control system to interactively exchange real time data with this model. Through a well-defined data model, logical data abstractions, and an exchange mechanism, the NGSH-0405 platform enables the development of portable applications that can be deployed with less time than those custom-built for each system. In this case, portable applications are those that can be deployed easily within any operational environment that supports its programming model, regardless of the utility or vendor system.


NGSH-0405 platform is designed to provide the following capabilities:

  • standardized data models and application programming interfaces to support data needs of other distribution system applications.
  • computational utilities, such as optimizers and power flow calculators, with well-defined interfaces.
  • underlying distribution system simulation.
  • functionality for application development, including tools such as versioning.
  • functionality to test these applications under realistic system, functional, and performance conditions.
  • configure the platform for the application being developed.

Application innovators can use the NGSH-0405 data abstractions and messages to make references to components of the network model, data exchanged between components of the network model, and changes to settings of those components. Distributed management system vendors can use the platform to develop and test their own standards-compliant interfaces.

A novel triple-store technology at the core approach provides the basis for application portability and for improved management of Common Information Model (CIM)–based network models.


A conceptual architecture for the system has five key functional elements as shown in Figure:

At the base of the figure, the distribution simulator provides data that enables developers to evaluate the performance of their applications with ideal or realistic data under various operating and performance conditions.

Peripheral to the NGSH-0405 platform, the figure shows developed applications (green boxes at top), which can be used in any compliant system. The dark orange box shows the relationship to various other commercial distribution system operation tools such as distribution managements systems (DMS), outage management systems (OMS), geographic information management systems (GIS), and energy management systems (EMS).
