GRIDDATA DIGITALTWIN

At the scene of the green transformation

Regional electricity distribution grids are central to the energy transition. Due to the dynamic growth of renewable energies, they often reach the limits of their hosting capacity. That is why operators of low and medium voltage networks are faced with the task of making their infrastructure fit for a constantly growing number of new producers and consumers, for example for photovoltaic systems and EV-charging stations. This can be achieved either through investments or through the optimal use of the existing infra-structure. A combination of both will be required for the fast realization of the energy transition.

In fact, investments in the expansion of power distribution networks cause considerable and often unnecessary costs. The latter occur especially if investements are carried out without knowledge of the real operating conditions in the grid, i.e. without knowledge of its bottlenecks. The good news is: The GridData DigitalTwin provides you with precise information about all that is happening on the grid and also the ability to foresee future scenarios. Based on real measurements, you automatically receive the accurate state of the grid, in real-time.

GRID TRANSPARENCY SOLUTION

Your assistant for the energy transition

With DigitalTwin, GridData transfers the concept of a digital twin to regional electricity distribution grids. In other words: The GridData DigitalTwin digitally maps your physical medium and/or low-voltage grid and ensures full grid transparency with the help of intelligent algorithms using real data from smart meters, transformer stations, inverters, etc.. Important: The GridData DigitalTwin is much more than a simulation tool. It is a solution model that works with real measurement data and replaces the usual operation and expansion of networks based on conventional consumption and generation profiles. This allows you to focus the construction of the power grid on actual bottlenecks, integrate more green electricity and reduce grid expansion costs. Grid efficiency and grid reliability increase.

SMART. TRANSPARENT. RELIABLE
