Join Siemens South Africa at Enlit Africa 2022

Africa's premier meeting place for the entire power, energy and water value chain. This year we're excited to engage with you on how we can collaboratively accelerate the African energy transition.

Accelerating the African energy transition

The challenges and opportunities of energy systems require a new smart, more adaptive grid infrastructure. Operating power grids today is a complex task: Volatile power generation and multidirectional power flows from distributed, increasingly renewable sources and prosumers call for a smarter approach. With digital solutions that connect the physical and digital worlds, we are integrating intelligence into the energy value chain, in systems and operations.


Find out how you can boost the African energy transition along these three core topics:

Grid stability and resilience

The reliability of power supply is more important than ever - at all voltage levels, from the grid infeed all the way to the consumer. Above all, the management of a growing number of prosumers brings new challenges. More and more households, buildings and industries are feeding electricity into the distribution system. IT-supported solutions create the necessary transparency for active load management and make it easier to balance the grid. Our solutions help ensure grid stability and create highly resilient power systems that recover immediately from disruptive events and adapt to impending threats and hazards.

SIPROTEC Function Point Manager

The energy sector requires for flexible, efficient and cost saving solutions. SIPROTEC Function Point Manager is a cloud-based application which enables SIPROTEC customers to centrally manage their function point budgets and assign function points to SIPROTEC 5 and SIPROTEC 5 Compact devices in order to extend their software functionality.

Customer benefits:

  • Independent – SIPROTEC function point budget usable for all SIPROTEC 5 device types 
  • Fast – Add and activate functionality quickly and easily using ad-hoc generated license files (DAF)
  • Flexibility – Specify SIPROTEC 5 and SIPROTEC 5 Compact functions late in the engineering process
  • Free cash – Order now, pay later: Function points will be invoiced only when you download license files
  • Reduced capital employed – Order and stock SIPROTEC universal protection relays devices independently from functions 

Economic Efficiency

Distribution system operators and municipal utilities are under considerable cost pressure. They need solutions that increase efficiency and save costs at the same time in order to improve investments and operating costs. Consistent use of the possibilities offered by digitalization and the Internet of Things over the entire life cycle, from planning to maintenance, can sustainably reduce this pressure. System operation becomes more efficient, processes become significantly more efficient, and new value streams and business models can emerge.

  • Retrofit and enhancement services
  • Virtual testing and simulation
  • IoT-applications for asset and grid monitoring
  • Intelligent, digital and sustainable switchgear

  • Easy adaptation to changing grid conditions
  • Fast monitoring of asset and system status and fault analysis
  • Increased cost efficiency and availability of smart grids
  • Better service quality through predictive maintenance

Transparency increases efficiency

Energy markets are becoming increasingly complex and require intelligent solutions and actions. The IoT applications of the Grid Diagnostic Suite help grid operators to manage the increasing complexity of their power grids. The collected data from the installed field devices is stored and analyzed in the central cloud. Users can easily consolidate, visualize and evaluate the data with the applications:

  • SIPROTEC Dashboard - Monitors status of protection relays
  • SICAM Navigator - Monitors the operational status of transformer stations (cable network)
  • SICAM Localizer - Monitors overhead lines
  • PQ Advisor Premium – Monitors PQ characteristics of grids

Customer benefits:

  • Fast monitoring of energy automation system status
  • Increases cost efficiency and availability of smart grids
  • Enables predictive maintenance and increases service quality
