I think this will work and says about $10K for an HMC...
Find the default AMSI/HMC port IP addresses for your system
Attach a laptop to which ever HMC port you choose using the same IP subnet
as the port you are attaching to
Open a browser session and log in to AMSI
Set the other HMC port to an address that is compatible with your local
network including Gateway address
Cable up that port up to the local network and access AMSI
In there I believe you can Power Up the Managed System.

Short of an HMC, is there any way to remotely power up a System i 520?

I have LAN Console and Remote Control Panel on my desktop at work. Due to
power issues last week (low voltage from utility) after a power outage, I
changed QPWRRSTIPL to 0 for no power up when power is restored.

In a future outage that results in my power handling program shutting down
the system, I have no recourse to power it up other than 1) drive in to
work, or 2) get an HMC, correct?

I can remote from home to my work desktop, but since the System i is
powered off, there ain't not no Remote Control Panel.
