Key features and highlights at a glance

The platform

  • Interactive visualization of network models in schematic, geographic or multi-layer diagrams
  • Extensive data modeling of all types of equipment including smart grid data models
  • Open architecture for easy data exchange and IT integration including: Geographic Information Systems (GIS), SCADA, Distribution Management Systems (DMS), and Meter Data Management Systems (MDMS)
  • Advanced algorithms with multiple modules i.e. Power Flow and Fault Analysis, Contingency Analysis/Probabilistic Reliability, Network Optimization, Transient Stability, EMT and Eigenvalues, Harmonics and Flicker evaluation, Protection simulation & coordination, Grid Code Compliance

Graphical user interface

  • Geographical visualization capability that reflects the interactiveness of a GIS application
  • Interactive web-based overlay of online and offline background maps
  • Integrated network editor and report generator (List & Label) to simplify the presentation of data / analysis
  • Network models can be maintained in multi-dimensional view (schematic, geographic) for different tasks with comparison options

Network model

  • From a simple bus-branch to a full substation model PSS®SINCAL can run various co-simulations off of a single network model
  • Network modeling can be done within a simple balanced up to a full four wire system or complete transposed system
  • Large network model can be simulated with timestamps, variants, scenarios, and can be split into separate models via the “include network” option

Simulation engine

  • High-level algorithms that are optimized for precision and performance
  • As the complexity of the data is adapted to the task, the program works targeted-oriented, with high-speed including parallel processing
  • Modeling options are not limited in network structure, phases or frequency
  • Fully integrated modular structure allows users to customize their license according to their needs

Project management

  • Model management is based on standard databases (i.e., Microsoft® Access®, ORACLE® or SQL Server)
  • Users can perform and track various analysis by working off a single master database
  • Changes can be tracked and users can reference the initial case
  • Distributed databases can be temporarily linked together and reconfigured via “include networks”
