PSI Awarded Contract for New Network Calculation System of Swissgrid

Proven software solutions increase safety in the transmission grid

Berlin, September 26, 2023 - PSI Software SE has been awarded the contract for the implementation of a new network calculation system (EMS Core) based on PSIcontrol 4.10 by the Swiss transmission system operator Swissgrid AG.

With the help of the "EMS Core System", complex network calculations, including dynamic stability calculations, can be carried out in the future in the transmission grid of the whole of Switzerland in order to evaluate and, if necessary, optimize grid security.

In addition, the system calculates grid situations that can be defined as possible variants up to 72 hours into the future. If a critical grid situation is identified, corrective measures are developed and proposed to the operating staff. This enables Swissgrid to avoid possible critical grid situations in advance.

Swissgrid decided in favor of PSI's proven software solutions, among other things, due to the extensive updateable and upgradeable functions and the existing references with leading transmission system operators (TSO).

With the current order from Swissgrid, PSI wins another important European transmission system operator and thus consolidates its leading position in the DACH region. The project duration is expected to be 27 months.

The PSI Group develops software products for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy grids, energy trading, public transport) and industrial companies (metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). As an independent software producer, PSI has been a technology leader since 1969 for process control systems that ensure sustainable energy supply, mobility and production by combining AI methods with industrially proven optimization methods. The innovative industry products are sold both directly and via the cloud-based PSI App Store. In fiscal year 2022, PSI generated annual sales of just under 250 million euros with more than 2,200 employees in 17 countries.
