Ellevio, Sweden’s second largest grid company, has contracted Siemens Smart Infrastructure in Norway to deliver a new grid control system for its distribution network.

The new grid control system based on Spectrum Power 7 will improve handling of increased network complexities, abnormalities, and security threats, whilst enabling improved ease and use for operators. Ellevio's control center in Karlstad is responsible for providing a reliable energy supply for 965,000 citizens in Sweden. The grid control is set up in a flexible multi-site operation with a main control center in Karlstad and a supporting control center in Stockholm for back-up.

 "In this case, Siemens is providing our new advanced grid control center solution Spectrum Power 7, which is made to enhance the operator effectiveness in ensuring a high level of real-time grid operation in addition to a high-security platform that meets the needs of the future", said Nils Klippenberg, Nordic Managing Director at Siemens Smart Infrastructure and CEO at Siemens AS in Norway.

Siemens Spectrum Power 7 is expected to better monitor and control Ellevio's high, medium and low voltage power grid. Also, the new system will improve the process for decision-making through 2D/3D situational awareness and visualization. Integration to current and future Enterprise IT systems is ensured through proven service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Web Service capabilities and Common Information Model CIM (IEC 61968) compatibility. The new control system is expected to be operational in 2022.

 "With the fast-changing energy landscape, we have seen the need to upgrade our control center to meet the increasing grid complexities to ensure a stable and reliable power supply for our customers. With Spectrum Power 7, we want to make a technological leap into the latest distribution grid operation generation. We need a secure platform to stay ahead of cybersecurity threats, and we need more transparency with the advent of more and more renewables, storage, and electromobility", said Niklas Eklund of Ellevio.
