Efficient grid expansion

image

A combination of robust technology and digital innovations leads to increased efficiency

Maintaining or even increasing grid performance is becoming ever more challenging. With growing efforts, expenses grow as well. Innovative technologies and smart data usage can help municipalities and DSOs to master these challenges and to increase their competitiveness. 

CAPEX savings

Get the most out of your grid

Economical operation of power grids depends upon spending investments in a smart way. Siemens offers a comprehensive portfolio of products, solutions, and services to thoroughly analyze a grid’s status, prevent asset failures, optimize maintenance of assets, and economically integrate the growing amount of energy from renewable sources.

Data makes your life easier

SCADA and OMS systems support the operators in the control center during a grid fault.

When faults occur in the grid, control center personnel must respond rapidly and effectively in a targeted manner – despite the highly complex failure situation. The objective is to quickly restore power in the grid. Doing so means that personnel must collect and analyze all necessary information in order to undertake appropriate countermeasures. Profound knowledge of the grid – based on in-depth analysis – helps by reducing effort, increasing availability, and optimizing operational performance.
