Siemens to market new distribution network management system for smart grids

16.10.2013
The Siemens Smart Grid Division is introducing a new distribution network management system onto the market that has been specifically developed for building and expanding smart grids.

Spectrum Power ADMS (Advanced Distribution Management System) combines SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), outage management, and fault and network analysis functions for the first time on a software platform under a common user interface.


The new Siemens distribution network management system Spectrum Power ADMS (Advanced Distribution Management System) combines SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), outage management, and fault and network analysis functions for the first time on a software platform under a common user interface.

This simplifies all work processes and facilitates the entering and updating of data. The system also allows network operators to not only control and monitor their distribution network more reliably, but also carry out maintenance and repair work more efficiently.

"If new energy policies are to succeed, we need to make our distribution networks more intelligent. They must also be capable of being controlled efficiently as smart grids in order to effectively channel the increasing volume of electricity fed in from renewable energy resources. This is exactly what our new system allows power supply companies and utilities to do," explained Jan Mrosik, CEO of Siemens Smart Grid Division.

By suggesting actions to be taken and through automated processes, the system assists operators at the grid control centers in repairing and reconnecting the affected network section as quickly as possible after a fault. Another strength of the system is the intelligent use of smart meter data for fault detection and clearance and for controlling and monitoring distributed energy sources. This makes Spectrum Power ADMS a key component for building and expanding smart grids.

Since it was developed for integration in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), the system can make use of services and data of other IT systems, such as cards and network data from geoinformation systems or load profiles from meter data management systems. In the same way, other IT systems can access services and data in the distribution network management system, like information for customer information systems about downtime in case of a malfunction, or work orders or switching jobs for the workforce management system. Thanks to its SOA design concept, Spectrum Power ADMS can be integrated efficiently in the user's IT environment, thus allowing business processes to be optimized and work processes to be automated.

The system provides the grid operator with the right tools to comply with the requirements of current international reliability standards such as NERC CIP (North American Electric Reliability Corporation – Critical Infrastructure Protection) or those of the US federal agency NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). Interoperability standards such as IEC 61970 (CIM, Common Information Model) and IEC 61968 (system interfaces for distribution networks) have also been taken into account in the development of Spectrum Power ADMS in order to facilitate the IT integration of the system in an existing infrastructure.

Energy-efficient, eco-friendly solutions for setting up intelligent power supply networks (Smart Grids) are is part of Siemens' Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2012, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about 33 billion euros, making Siemens one of the world's largest suppliers of eco-friendly technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by more than 330 million tons, an amount equal to the total annual CO2 emissions of Berlin, Delhi, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo.

The Siemens Smart Grid Division (Nuremberg, Germany) offers power providers, network operators, industrial enterprises and cities an end-to-end portfolio with products and solutions to develop intelligent energy networks. Smart Grids enable a bidirectional flow of energy and information. They are required for the integration of more renewable energy sources in the network. In addition, power providers can run their plants more efficiently with data gained from Smart Grids. Software solutions that analyze data from Smart Grids will continuously gain importance. Thereby, the division uses in-house developments in addition to systems from software partners. For further information please see: http://www.siemens.com/smartgrid

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
