Get ready for future requirementsDistribution 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.
Professional consulting and planning for distribution networks
Handling 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.
Highlighted cases for better distribution networks
eMobility Stress TestThe trend towards electromobility is gaining pace. Distribution system operators are now facing the questions of how their grids will be affected by an increasing penetration of EV charging infrastructure in the future, and if the installed equipment, such as cables and transformers, will have to be adapted to the changing requirements.
Siemens has developed a methodology which allows utilities to assess the impact on their grid based on detailed forecasts of the expected load development for a predefined time frame.
