We build our Spectrum Power solutions on one real-time, high-performance technology platform, with one common user interface, one common network model and a powerful set of applications.
With Spectrum Power, you’ll gain the greatest possible return on investment through
Flexibility – easily adaptable to emerging and continually changing regulatory requirements through modularity and step-by-step extensions
Openness – to new Smart Grid business cases and to easy interoperability with any enterprise IT
- Siemens Adapter Framework (SAF)
- Proven SOA and web service capabilities
- CIM (IEC 61968) compatibility
Efficiency – eliminate redundant data modeling and reduce data maintenance efforts through central data management based on CIM (IEC 61970). The automatic generation of network displays significantly minimizes the workload associated with manually building displays.
Cybersecurity – always up-to-date and in conformance with international IT security standards
Smart data management in intelligent grids
Are you facing the need to cost-effectively manage more and more data and exchange that data with growing numbers of other systems as a result of evolving business requirements? Are you looking for a proven, best-of-class engineering tool for efficient data modeling, maintenance and exchange?
Spectrum Power™ Information Model Management (IMM) is the answer for supporting grid operators in their efforts to manage power grids in an intelligent, safe and efficient manner – today and tomorrow.
- High cost efficiency – As a central repository, IMM efficiently manages data compliant with the Common Information Model (CIM) IEC 61970 – eliminating redundant model and data maintenance efforts.
- Optimized interoperability – Control systems based on CIM and its extensions in line with IEC 61968 (DMS) and IEC 62325 (energy market) provide optimal interoperability for any IT integration. The database based on CIM allows easy incorporation of future information and is highly effective in ensuring long-term system reliability.
- Increased awareness – Time-based models reflect the evolutionary nature of work, providing access to the right data at any time. Retrieving a past model for any point in time enables accurate conclusions to be derived from post-mortem analyses.
User Group Conferences
We encourage our customers to join one of our international Spectrum Power User Groups holding several conferences per year on different continents.
During these events, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss and share best practices, hear about the latest product developments and emerging industry trends, and network with an international audience of Spectrum Power users. These User Groups are an important forum for an open dialogue and exchange of experiences, ideas and suggestions for further improving our Spectrum Power applications.
The first virtual Spectrum Power User Conference International was held from November 23-27, 2020. We are planning to organize the next Spectrum Power User Conference in October or November 2021.
Spectrum Power meets every demandWe offer solutions for transmission and distribution, for municipalities or multi-utilities and the industry, for energy generation, portfolio optimization, rail electrification, and market management. Whatever you need, Spectrum Power has the solution.
Digitalization is changing our world. Modern societies depend on a set of critical infrastructures, and none is more crucial than our energy supply, which keeps all other elements running. Because cyberattacks have become more prevalent due to digitalization, cybersecurity training is becoming an essential part of securing and protecting assets. Locked Shields is the world’s largest and most complex international technical cyberdefense exercise. The cyberdefense drill is annually set up and organized by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO CCDCOE). More than 1,000 experts from nearly 30 nations were involved in Locked Shields 2019, practicing protection with 4,000 virtualized systems and more than 2,500 simulated attacks.

As a leading company in cybersecurity, we at Siemens aim at continuously improving both the safety of our products and the quality of our consulting services for making our customers’ infrastructures even safer. Firsthand experience from the Locked Shields exercise gives us better insight on how to improve all levels of cybersecurity. Siemens Digital Grid participated successfully in this strategy game, which dealt with a simulated massive cyberattack on a power grid. Siemens contributed to the exercise with Spectrum Power, the software platform for efficient and secure power grid operations, as well as the Remote Terminal Units SICAM A8000 commonly used in substations.
