Applications - SIPROTEC DigitalTwin


Testing of the energy automation system within minutes, without hardware and without additional effort.

·      Faster energization of new systems thanks to shorter project lifetimes

·      Reduced OPEX with shorter outages for higher availability thanks to better pre-testing (incl. patches)

·      Reduced CAPEX in test equipment

·      Fast and remote support and fault analysis by easily reproducing the behavior of products and systems

·      Flexible, continuous, and personalized training in virtual test environment based on real system conditions
