 HARRIS AWARDED $6.4 MILLION CONTRACT
 BY SAN DIEGO UTILITY FOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
 MELBOURNE, Fla., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has been awarded a $6.4 million contract to provide an energy management system to the San Diego Gas and Electric Company.
 Harris Controls and Composition Division will provide an XA/21 (TM) Energy Management System to replace the California utility's existing system. The new Harris system, which is scheduled to be installed by 1993, will provide supervisory, control and other functions. Also included in the contract is a dispatcher training simulator.
 The system includes five computers and 35 work stations that will provide dispatcher load flow, contingency analysis, generation control, unit commitment and optimal power flow.
 The utility, which has more than a million customers, selected Harris over five other vendors "because we were looking for a standard off-the-shelf-system from a company that we felt could meet an extremely aggressive schedule," said Ron Bushner, the utility's EMS operations supervisor. "Harris' EMS has the most forward-looking distributed configuration that we saw," he added.
 Harris Controls and Composition Division, headquartered in Melbourne, Fla., is part of Harris Electronic Systems Sector. The division has extensive background in the design and installation of advanced computer-based control systems, and is a major supplier of these systems to electric utilities, oil and gas pipeline companies, transit authorities, and railroads throughout the U.S. and abroad.
 Harris Corporation, with worldwide sales of more than $3 billion, is focused on four major businesses: electronic systems, communications, semiconductors, and Lanier Worldwide office equipment.
