Distribution grid planning
Distribution System Operators (DSOs) are in the center of today’s transformation of the energy system towards systems characterized by new loads and fluctuating, bi-directional power flows imposed from massive renewable generation. Despite these developments, the existing principles of an efficient, economic and sustainable energy supply remain as important as ever.
Developing future-proof power distribution systemsHandling the immense amount of data which is available on the low and medium voltage grids creates disruptive opportunities and risks. Existing principles and guidelines have to be reviewed, and innovative and integrated infrastructure planning becomes more and more important. Backed by years of experience from a wide range of projects conducted all over the world, Siemens PTI supports DSOs in all aspects of distribution network planning, development and optimization.

Whitepaper: New planning principles for urban power gridsUrban energy systems are evolving at high speed, and they will need to deliver much higher capacity to consumers than today. We are now starting to understand more clearly how adapting to climate change by electrification of the transport and heating sector will have a transformational impact on power grids. Find out about insights gained together with research partners and in our consulting projects as well as our recommendations for a new approach to urban power grid planning in this whitepaper.
