Siemens launches new platform to create customer-specific apps for distribution grids

The apps serve different purposes. For example, the first one analyzes weather data. The second app controls wind turbines based on these analyses, while the third is used to optimize the storage of the energy generated. The shared database with the remote terminal unit (RTU) supports consistent, distributed data processing and simultaneously reduces the number of hardware interfaces needed. As a result, it is possible to operate three completely independent applications on a single hardware component, keeping control cabinets compact. This saves space, reduces installation costs as well as spare parts inventory expenses. The devices can be serviced quickly and easily via remote access.
“The new Siapp application enables customers to create their own functions and adapt global products to local requirements. They can also develop their own dashboard,” said Robert Klaffus, CEO Digital Grid at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “It’s now possible to combine different access-protected functions on a single, reliable processor module, as if the hardware were proprietary. With this easy-to-implement distributed solution, we are once again at the forefront of energy automation. Our first customer is already running Siapp successfully.”
