Create Switching Operation
Available in ArcMap.
The Create Switching Operation tool allows you to create switching operations for scheduled outages. In short, a switching operation is the same as a step in a switching order, or a step within the set of steps that operate the selected device. The Create Switching Operation tool creates restoration steps and adds to it the switching operation that operates the selected device. It also creates an incident to which the restoration steps are assigned. Use the Edit Restoration Steps tool to add or remove steps.
- In ArcMap, locate the feature on the map.
- Click the Create Switching Operation button on the Responder toolbar.
- Click the feature to operate.
- The Create Switching Operation window allows the operator
to provide an outage time and the name of the person who operated
the device. You can modify the Planned Status. This field lists the
phases and phase combinations that can be operated on the device.If the device's normal status is closed, the Planned field displays the phases that can be opened. If the device's normal status is opened, the Planned field displays the phases that can be closed.
- Click OK.
A switching operation symbol is placed on the feature in the map, and a confirmed incident with restoration steps is created in Responder Explorer. Use the Edit Restoration Steps tool to modify the restoration steps in Responder Explorer.
