Leading European Utility Adopts Ventyx-Powered Smart Grid Control Center in Sweden

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 17 April 2013 Release date- 16042013 - ATLANTA - Ventyx, an ABB company, today announced that world-leading energy service provider E.ON has selected a comprehensive set of Ventyx software solutions to underpin its new smart grid control center in Sweden.


E.ON is one of the world's largest investor-owned power and gas companies, serving more than 26 million customers in over 30 countries.

Representing the next step in a strategic research and development initiative between E.ON and ABB to define next-generation smart grid solutions, the new control center will provide a best-practices model for global utilities to ensure greater operational efficiency in the face of increasingly complex power networks worldwide.

'Ultimately, smart grid is about optimizing power delivery to ensure customer satisfaction,' said Peter Sigenstam, vice president and head of E.ON Innovation Centre Distribution. 'To support this goal, the next generation of smart grid control centers will need to handle unprecedented operational demands. We are pleased to partner with Ventyx, whose proven software solutions are essential to the success of our smart grid initiative.' Building upon its existing deployment of Ventyx's SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system, the following IT solutions from the Ventyx portfolio will be implemented, developed and tested: business analytics, network optimization, load forecasting, demand response and distributed resource management.

Combining information (IT) and operational technologies (OT) in E.ON's smart grid control center will deliver a higher degree of grid automation, sensing and visibility; achieve greater control of distributed generation and further support regulatory compliance.

'The control center model being implemented at E.ON's smart grid control center represents a significant advance in smart grid innovation. We believe it will serve as a guide for utilities around the world as they move to stay on top of increasing variations in generation and consumption,' said Andy Bane, executive vice president product management, Ventyx.

'We're pleased to expand our existing partnership with E.ON, and further advance this exciting smart grid initiative. Ventyx is the only software vendor that can deliver the breadth and depth of IT and OT solutions required to solve some of our customers' biggest challenges.' E.ON is developing its new smart grid control center for a variety of advanced use cases, including: Greater awareness of the state of the network through improved forecasting using real-time and near-real time operational data, weather data and neural network algorithms; Optimized reactive power flow and voltages helped by more accurate forecasts of load, and distributed resources, combined with network switching analytics; More accurate monitoring and control of power flows between the transmission and distribution systems through load control/demand response and Greater prediction of congestion caused by production from renewable generation, mainly wind farms, based on weather forecasts.

The new smart grid control center will be installed in Malmo, Sweden, and is anticipated to be operational in early 2014 for test and development purposes.
