Efficiently plan, design, and operate electricity grids 

PSS SINCAL for Electricity

PSS®SINCAL supports your entire engineering workflow

For over 20 years, PSS®SINCAL has enabled engineers to tackle different challenges of the changing distribution, transmission, and industrial power systems, including maintaining high reliability of supply and efficiently integrating Distributed Energy Resources. With the modular platform of PSS®SINCAL, power system planning and operation engineers are supported with their entire workflow from the initial data import and network modeling (considering past, current and future conditions), to basic and extended calculations, all the way to extensive protection simulations and analysis as well as other methods in time and frequency domains.

Efficiently automate sizing and placement of Energy Storage!

With the Energy Storage Sizing and Positioning Module, simplify simulation of Non-Wired Alternatives (NWA) to mitigate reliability concerns within your volatile network. By using a simple workflow support wizard, this new feature will automatically generate the required location and size of energy storage. No longer rely on a time-consuming trial and error approach when modeling batteries.
