Berlin, 20 December 2017 – PSI Software AG has once again received important orders from major energy suppliers in the Electrical Energy business unit. These include both upgrades of existing systems as well as large expansion orders. For all new projects, the current PSIcontrol version 4.5 with the implemented IT security technology based on the BDEW/ÖE rules is used.
Rheinenergie, which has been a PSI customer for more than 30 years, has ordered an upgrade for the integrated system for operation of the sections electricity (medium and low voltage), gas, water and district heating. Parallel to this, in a first stage of the RheinSchiene system is to be implemented, which includes the standardization of the control systems of the network operators of the cities of Cologne, Dusseldorf and Duisburg with the possibility of later redundancy if necessary. The Rheinenergie system is transferred directly to the RheinSchiene system.
The large systems of Westnetz GmbH are facing relevant extensions in the areas of external network connection with CIM, DZE functionality, network and forecast calculations. Thus, the two systems in the network areas north and south are also being sought. All contracted system extensions will be harmonized with the other distribution network operators of the innogy Group as part of a harmonization project.
In addition, PSI offers the GLDPM module (Generation and Load Data Provision Methodology) to be used from 2018, which distribution system operators require for data exchange with the assigned transmission system operator.
On the basis of its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for energy management (energy networks, energy trading), production management (mining, metals, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics) and infrastructure management for transport and safety. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs 1,650 persons worldwide.
