Siemens upgrades control centers for 50Hertz

23.06.2015

Siemens will supply its latest network control technology for the main control center in Berlin, the backup control center as well as seven regional control rooms owned by the transmission grid operator 50Hertz.

Siemens will replace the previous control technology with its latest Spectrum Power 7 network control system by 2017. In taking this step, 50Hertz is responding to increased demands on the grids and their control systems.

Among other things, these demands have been generated by the growing number of renewable energy sources in the grids of northern and eastern Germany, especially of wind energy.

By implementing the new network control technology, the transmission grid operator also intends to standardize the landscape of its network control systems and prepare for future requirements arising from the European Electricity Network Codes.

"Our new network control system Spectrum Power 7 helps grid operators manage current and future challenges in their control rooms. The system is already being used successfully in the United States, India and Columbia, and will now become firmly established in Germany and Europe," said Jan Mrosik, CEO of the Siemens Energy Management Division.

With Spectrum Power 7, the Berlin grid operator will be able to safely integrate renewable energy sources, further develop the European energy market and ensure a high standard of supply safety into the future.

These developments are supported by a user interface that is tailored to the individual workflows of control center operators, and focuses their attention and ability to take action on the essentials when critical grid states occur.

New IT tools that Siemens has integrated into its control system, such as a Remedial Action Dispatching System (RADS), will also support the operator.

SCADA functions that have been field-tested for many years as well as higher-end functions for operating a transmission grid are available. Online calculation of the power infeed from renewable energy sources as well as high IT security round out the range of services in the Siemens grid control system.
