Die TBW schafft mit Adaptricity.Mon im GIS Bereich einen grossen Mehrwert!

Project period: August 2020 - November 2021 August 2020 – November 2021

 

Functions:

The entire network model of Technische Betriebe Wil (TBW) is exported daily from GEONIS (GIS) and checked for topology, completeness and computational capability. This is imported into Adaptricity.Mon together with the SmartMeter measurement data from the MDM (esolva) using, among other things, a customer list (is-e). There, the complete network operation can be monitored daily, up-to-date and automatically. Based on the actual operation, any connection requests, network calculations, analyses, planning, and scenarios can be carried out easily and efficiently.

 

Milestones:

·       Topologically maintained distribution network in GIS with successful network model conversion

·       First monitoring setup with initial SmartMeter mapping via address designations

 

Challenges:

For the TBW, the rapid increase in decentralized feed-in (PVA) and electro mobility is making the acquisition and evaluation of accurate network data increasingly essential. The effort involved is considerable. In addition, the load and flow direction in the power grid is changing, which is why a detailed insight into the real load flows is becoming increasingly important.

 

Solution:

The implementation of Adaptricity.Mon. This enables TBW to have full transparency over the operating resources in network operation. This results in accurate, simple and conceptually meaningful connection request evaluations and network planning. Thus, through the expanded know-how of the network effects, various analyses will be carried out in House and the network will be expanded and maintained in a targeted manner.

 

Result:

Information that used to require an additional power meter to be installed in the network can now be filtered out directly in Adaptricity.Mon. New connection requests can thus be easily processed and any information on load profiles, energy flows and power quality data can be read out. 

The software solution also has positive effects for the TBW team and the TBW's end customers: For the team, the power grid is presented transparently and clearly on one platform. "Adaptricity.Mon has increased the importance of the GIS area. Also for other departments in TBW. It is thus an important element in EV network calculation." Andreas Gnos, Head of Grid and Technology. For TBW's customers, this means that their questions related to PVA, charging infrastructure and other loads can be answered more easily and quickly.

 

With the rollout of Adaptricity.Mon, the TBW is drawing on Long-term added value: He gains in-depth knowledge of the power grids and is thus able to provide accurate information about bottlenecks. Furthermore, he can carry out various analyses independently and expand and maintain the network in a more targeted manner without having to call in external engineering services. 

Andreas Gnos, Head of Network and Technology concludes "The implementation was an instructive time with new insights for the GIS team."
