Smart District Solution

Smart City becomes Reality

A ”smart district“ comprises the total of all smart, digitized and – in terms of energy supply – decentrally organized assets.

Challenges

The central challenge in the implementation of smart districts is the integration of new technologies into existing business processes and their synchronization, and to ensure compliance with the required security standards.

As a rule, organically developed infrastructures must be intelligently exploited as well as redeveloped and digitized in several stages. This requires soft- and hardware that can be flexibly scaled and expanded.

A central database as a single source of truth (SSOT) is elementary for the implementation of these goals, enabling efficient meter/sensor-to-cash processes.

The smart districts of the future are facing the following challenges:

  • Energy management
  • Customer acceptance
  • Submetering
  • Coupling of sectors
  • E-mobility
  • Automation

Our Solutions for You

Capacity Optimization

Power Grid in Motion …

The Internet of Things (IoT) offers many possibilities to synchronize the generation, storage, grid management and consumption of power across one’s own power grid boundaries.

To master the future challenges to power grids, the continuous further development of SCADA systems is absolutely vital. The VIVAVIS Capacity Optimization function ensures reliable power grid operation and optimized grid operation schedules.

Challenges

The challenge is to balance the volatility in low- and medium-voltage grids which arise from the integration of renewable energy producers. Power grids must become even more flexible to balance supply and demand in real time.

Operators must have tools to better see, forecast and control power grids.

The challenges for power grid operation in the future are:

  • Ensure grid stability
  • Visualization and forecast
  • Controlling large data volumes
  • creating new business models
  • Electromobility
  • Integration of systems

Our Solutions for You

  1. Decentralized Power Generation
    Keep your power grid balanced – even if the number of decentralized producers is constantly increasing. To do this, you need to identify potential risks in order to avoid them or intervene quickly in advance. This goal can only be achieved by using suitable hard- and software and through solutions which optimally connect decentralized power generators to the SCADA system and, if necessary, reduce the feed-in power
  2. Electromobility
    With intelligent power grid and charging infrastructure management, you are optimally prepared for mastering the challenges of E-mobility. It enables you to quickly detect and rectify faults and overloads, monitor charging points, maintain the total charging capacity and to identify the status of assets.
  3. Operation and Monitoring of the Low- and Medium-Voltage Grid </ br> SCADA systems, telecontrol and automation systems as well as intelligent metering systems record the necessary process data. To enable you to easily control all power grid sectors from your central control room, consumption and feed-in data are compiled, analysed and validated, both at individual transfer points or across the entire power grid area.
  4. Evaluation of Power Grid Conditions
    Sustainable SCADA systems are capable of evaluating and drawing conclusions. The status of your power grid can be visualized, for instance, in the form of a traffic light model – also for each grid sector or transformer substation, if need be.
  5. Power Grid Cascade
    Owners of power grids are responsible for the system security of the supply network and must cooperate even more closely with other grid operators. The SCADA system organizes the implementation and documentation of feed-in and shut-off measures as well as the necessary exchange of data.
  6. Mobile Handling
    In the event of a fault, the HIGH-LEIT SCADA system emits an alarm via an app and automatically creates an order for technical staff, sending it directly to their mobile terminal. A mobile application in the Asset Management System enables you to quickly identify the relevant systems and eliminate the fault.
  7. Dynamic Data Exchange
    Whether it’s SCADA, metering or GIS systems: In the future, it will be standard for all components to communicate with one another via MessageBus and a specially developed software platform, without the need to develop a special software for that purpose. Furthermore, the software platform also enables the compilation and evaluation of data (Advanced Analytics).

Asset Management

Assets in Transformation

Digitization changes all sectors, including the lifecycle and operation of your systems.

The assets of the future are networked via the Internet of Things. The IoT supplies live data, e.g. data from sensors or measuring systems.

New technologies and methods provide a wide range of tools for mastering the new challenges.

Challenges

The big challenge is to efficiently use huge quantities of live data in order to ensure the highest possible degree of security and cost-effectiveness.

In addition, internal and external regulations, guidelines, standards and requirements must be observed, too.

An Asset Manager must comply with the following requirements:

  • Ensure legal security
  • Achieve the standardization and automation of processes
  • Digitize assets
  • Exloit Big Data
  • Ensure optimum use of resources
  • Create a Single Point of Data
  • Prevent faults and outages
  • Simplify documentation and reporting procedures
  • Simplify documentation and reporting procedures

Our Solutions for You

  1. Library for Asset Management
    An asset library simplifies the inclusion of your assets into the ACOS NMS asset management system, especially if you are dealing with highly complex assets. Amongst others, the library offers component information from the manufacturers. Further information can be integrated and linked with additional values, for instance sensors, documents or plans.
  2. 3D- and Geo-Navigation
    ACOS NMS REAL enables you to take a “tour of inspection in 3D“ and view all assets with their relevant information. It also visualizes linked measured values from sensors and measuring systems. In ACOS NMS GEO, you can view geoinformation from your GIS on a map or in a list, depending on your requirements. Furthermore, NFC tags enable you to determine every asset without ambiguities.
  3. Single Point of Data
    With VIVAVIS, all information about your assets is available in a central database. A clearly structured dashboard presents you all the relevant information at a glance. This transparent structure enables you to determine the optimum time for replacement investments and to make decisions quickly, efficiently and economically.
  4. Intelligent Maintenance
    You can make efficient and intelligent use of the enormous daily data volume using Advanced Analytics methods. This enables the optimization of maintenance works and the planning of short- and medium term measures, thereby increasing efficiency and saving time and money. Information such as usage intensity, age and other features is used for predictive maintenance strategies, which allows you to decide exactly when maintenance of a given asset is needed. For this purpose, orders are created automatically and forwarded to the respective employees.
  5. Outage Management Before A Fault </ br> You can view the status of your assets at any time by means of the connected sensors and actuators. Sensors, for instance, record temperature profiles of assets, warning the operator of imminent overheating. Alarms received in the SCADA system are also recorded by ACOS NMS as faults. Following such occurrences, an automated order is generated for technical staff (also directly on the mobile terminal).
  6. Mobile first
    The necessary knowledge is available to your staff on their mobile terminals at any time, any place and in its most up-to-date form, thereby enabling them to carry out their tasks efficiently. The link to geoinformation helps with navigation. Any changes, activities and images can be directly added on site.
