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.Follow us on Twitter at: www.twitter.com/siemens_sg
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

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
