Abstract: A large electric utility in the Midwest currently estimates that its recently installed digital data system is saving over one thousand dollars a day in generation and tranmission costs. In the East, one of the nations major steel suppliers is keeping a close watch on gas, water and electricity demands and effecting substantial economies by maintaining these items within contract limitations using digital telemetering and solid stale supervisory control. In the West, a water utility has programmed a small general purpose digital computer to control pumping from its widely scattered network of wells in such a fashion as to insiue an adequate supply to its customers and still maintain electricity demand below the contract limit. Communication between the computer and the remote equipment is by a solid state digital telemetering and supervisory control system.
