Mastering the digital transformation in the distribution network
Master change. The modern challenges in grid management, such as the expansion of renewable energies, the requirements of growing electric mobility, the (over-) ageing of operating resources and efficiency requirements from the regulatory authorities can only be mastered on the basis of an up-to-date, reliable information base. More and more complex decisions have to be made and the time windows are becoming tighter. The digitalisation of distribution networks and the interactions of the network operator with many new players further increase the pressure.
Therefore, new processes for network data quality and visualization, network calculation, regulation and asset management must be established and increasingly large amounts of data must be processed efficiently. The IT infrastructures of many network operators are only suitable for these tasks to a limited extent because they usually consist of many proprietary individual solutions.
With Fichtner Digital Grid, the challenges of technical-economic network management described above can be met flexibly, transparently, system-oriented and digitally on the basis of an information-centric, modern consolidation platform.
Digitizing distribution networks. Smart integration creates a digital image of the network, including the linking of technical, commercial and geographical data. Inconsistencies and gaps in the data and network topology are optimally supplemented by intelligent data migration.
This resource information is available to a wide range of users in a centralized and up-to-date manner, for example via our data-centric Fichtner EDDIE platform. As a proven industry specialist, Fichtner supports you in setting up a modular, scalable solution as the platform for your digitization strategy.
Supporting processes. Fichtner Digital Grid supports distribution network operators in meeting current challenges with a unique, flexibly scalable solution package. In doing so, we focus on company-wide use with functions specifically designed for different work processes:
- Cross-divisional and multidisciplinary, low-barrier views of plants as well as analysis functions for network calculation, Regulation and asset management
- Task-specific expert workplaces with a low entry hurdle to optimize regular processes
From the provision of a reliable, resource-oriented information base to cloud-based BPO (Business Process Outsourcing), we offer a tailored set of services and integrative software modules that can be individually adapted to business objectives.
