An overview of the open architecture for the control center modernization and consolidation project at British Columbia Transmission Corporation (BCTC) is discussed. The design is based on the technology strategy of creating a long-term, cost-effective, sound, and sustainable solution. The integration solution provided allows modular introduction of new applications and upgrading of individual applications without impacting the rest of the system. The approach consists of a pragmatic, real-world decision-making framework that addresses multiple conflicting requirements and constraints. The architecture creates an open and flexible framework for evolving the consolidated control centers into a scalable infrastructure for evolution and implementation of a long-term roadmap.
