PSI Demonstrates Integrated Software Solutions at the E-world 2020

  • Optimized gas transport and storage

  • Cloud-based network control and integration of electromobility

  • Mapping long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)

Berlin, 15 January 2020 – PSI is presenting its latest integrated software solutions for the energy industry at the E-world energy & water in Essen from 11 to 13 February 2020 (Hall 3, new Stand 314). Based on the PSI technology platform, new and expanded functions for optimised gas transport and storage, intelligent network control, load and charge management, field force management, energy trading and sales, optimisation and cloud-based applications will be presented.

Extensions for energy trading

The energy trading system PSImarket supports the integration of renewable energies and the associated volatile fluctuations. This is done, for example, by mapping complex long-term electricity supply contracts (so-called PPAs-Power Purchase Agreements) and integrating functions for automation and short-term trading.

In addition, extensive functional enhancements will be presented, including new interfaces to trading platforms, a new module for defining procurement strategies and improvements in operation and performance. The system can be operated entirely in the cloud. The user interface will be provided via a web GUI or a rich client. Here, PSI will show current developments in click design technology and the WORA principle (Write Once Run Anywhere).

Also the preconfigured PSImarket system for small and medium-sized municipal utilities, which is specifically tailored to the needs of municipal utilities will be displayed. This offers a compact and economical mapping of all energy management processes with a high degree of automation.

Furthermore, the PSIrwin revision and calibration system will be presented with newly available measured value import and functionalities for scheduling and document storage. Thus, the system can be integrated even easier into existing corporate processes.

Software optimized gas transport and storage

PSI is presenting the current version of the PSIgassuite with new and expanded functions for transport dispatching, regional distributors and storage operators. The master data management with functions such as branching (dedicated working environment for system managers), merging (merging of work results) and staging (deployment of selected work results) will be presented as a new module. The new component is based on the group-wide PSI platform and seamlessly integrated into the PSIgassuite.

The new PSIgasguide supports dispatching in the determination and optimization of current and future network operations. PSIgasguide uses Qualicision, a PSI solution for multi-criteria optimization and decision support based on AI procedures and can be integrated or used as a stand-alone.

New complex functions and enhancements for online simulation, gas composition reconstruction, compressor optimization and timetable management will be presented. Services such as the application software upgrade service and the hosting of PSIgassuite in the cloud round out the offer.

Intelligent network control and integration of electromobility

Other key exhibits include new software solutions for intelligent network management and the first cloud-based applications for integrating electromobility via smart grid apps and load management for the charging infrastructure.

In addition, applications for network monitoring with IoT data-stream methods as well as network operation management, area network automation and operation optimization through decentralized network controllers with field force management will be demonstrated. Grid security will demonstrate the secure connection and reliable protection of telecontrol lines in companies.

Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs almost 2,000 persons worldwide.
