Siemens Develops 1st Dynamic Power Grid Control Centre 

Siemens’ DynaGridCenter is capable of visualizing dynamic processes that bring the energy transition to the power grid and provide targeted recommendations for actions to optimize the grids and prevent blackouts.

Leading energy sector player, Siemens, while working alongside researchers, has developed world’s first cutting edge Dynamic Power grid control Centre ‘DynaGridCenter’.

Siemens’ DynaGridCenter is capable of visualizing dynamic processes that bring the energy transition to the power grid and provide targeted recommendations for actions to optimize the grids and prevent blackouts.

Prof Rainer Krebs, Head, Consulting Unit for the Operation and Protection of Power Grids in the Siemens Energy Management Division said, “In the future, we’ll need control centers that can independently regulate the highly dynamic power grid with an autopilot functionality and keep it stable. He added, “The dynamic control centre is therefore an indispensable part of a successful energy transition. It controls the increasing grid dynamics, maintains grid stability, and provides specific recommendations for action to prevent blackouts.”

According to Siemens, the number of decentralized generating plants continues to grow while the capacity of conventional power plants shrinks, the power network is ever-more susceptible to disturbances which calls for a next level transmission regulator.

Further, the DynaGridCenter project looked at ways to visualize dynamic processes triggered by the uneven load distribution in the grid and figuring out how to systematically respond to them.
