David Bogen started his career in the utility industry in 1981 with Texas Power and Light after graduating from Kansas State University with a degree in Electrical engineering. David’s icurrent position is Manager Transmission and Distribution Services – System Modeling. David is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Texas.
During his thirty-six plus years of working of working in the electric utility industry, David has spent most of his time doing some type of transmission network modeling. Starting with Transmission Planning and then moving into modeling for dynamic studies. When Oncor’s Electric Delivery decided it was time to upgrade it real-time operations systems to include advance network applications, such as State Estimation, Real-Time Contingency Analysis, and Operational Training Simulator, David was selected to develop the Transmission Network Model. Since the deployment of these advance applications into the Control Room David has also been responsible for supporting these applications in the real-time including the development and updating of the transmission network model required by these applications.
David started studying the EPRI CIM in the early 2000s when he started to support multiple systems that required the same network model but had different data entry requirements.
In 2005 David joined the CIM User group and got involved in the annual CPSM interoperation testing and has participated in nearly all Interoperability Testing (IOP) events since then including the first European CIM IOP sponsored by UCTE. David has also participated in the EPRI projects to extend the CIM standards to include planning and dynamic modeling.
David was Oncor’s Electric Delivery lead person in working with ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas) on redesigning the electric market for the current implementation to nodal Location Marginal Pricing methodology. One of the major activities that David was instrumental was the designing and development of the new ERCOT transmission network model which was the first large scale implementation based on the IEC standards for Common Information Modeling that includes both reliability and market modeling data modeling requirements merged into a single master database. David acted as a liaison between ERCOT, the Texas Stake Holders, the CIM Standards Committees and User groups during this development activity. The implementation of this new data management supported many changes to the CIM standards.
David is also supporting the CIM Harmonization activities with IEC 61850 by providing a utility view.
John Moseley is the Principal Engineer for Network Model Architecture and Integration at the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). He is responsible for ERCOT CIM model, network model data interfaces, and integration of company business processes as associated to the gathering, validation, testing, and use of data as related to the Network Model. He has been with ERCOT for the past 14 years.
John Moseley served as the Business and Technical lead for the development of ERCOT’s Network Model Management System (NMMS) as part of the ERCOT nodal market redesign becoming operational in 2009. He recently completed an upgrade to the NMMS that included a full change of the technological stack and a redesign of the business process.
