Siemens Introduces New Distribution Management System For Smart Grids In North America

Siemens Smart Grid has introduced a comprehensive distribution management system specifically developed for enhancing and expanding smarter 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 within a consolidated user environment, the first of its kind in North America. This simplifies workflows and facilitates efficient data management. The system also allows network operators to not only control and monitor their distribution network more reliably, but also track and restore outages and carry out maintenance and repair work more efficiently.

By suggesting remedial actions and restoration processes, the system assists grid operators in isolating and restoring the affected network sections as quickly as possible after a fault. The system also leverages the intelligent use of smart meter data for outage prediction, fault detection and clearance, and for managing distributed energy sources making Spectrum Power ADMS a key component for enhancing and expanding smart grids.

“Energy systems worldwide are facing a growing range of challenges, especially in power distribution management,” said Dr. Jan Mrosik, CEO of Siemens’ Smart Grid Division. “Siemens has developed its ADMS solution for North America to specifically address these challenges and achieve wide-spread build out of the smart grid. Utilities will now be able to make data more actionable, increasing operational efficiency for the utility itself and improving power reliability for end users.”

Since it was developed for integration in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), the system can make use of services and data from other IT systems, such as network data from geographic information 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. The SOA focused design concept allows Spectrum Power ADMS to be integrated efficiently in the user's IT environment, promoting business process optimization and work process automation.
