Grid management software for 100% renewable energy
The framework to combine all the solutions you need to master progressively renewable energy generation.Download AEMS overview
As utilities digitize their operations, their network assets need to be reliably mobilized to ensure energy transmission from multiple sources is maximized. High renewable energy penetration, intermittency and low inertia generate an increased level of threats. All of which requires a full understanding of real-time and future network status to enable a rapid response as changes occur.
GE’s Advanced EMS integrates the power of EMS, Renewables and WAMS to enable operators to better operate, optimize and analyze while minimizing risk and increasing flexibility.
CIM is a leap forward in traditional modeling of electric networks.
This new application helps to manage time-based models across multiple enterprise-wide business domains (Operations, Planning, Protection) and with neighboring utilities. It provides a complete business process automation for importing, aggregating, validating, and exporting models in different formats, including CIM-16/CGMES. The models are validated for wide areas from a network security or market perspective, for the short and mid-term, and for multiple points in time.
Network Model Manager benefits:
Power systems monitoring increasingly involves managing millions of data points. These data points come from a variety of sources, at different times, each with their own resolution and quality. GE AEMS SCADA is fully prepared to receive data using traditional protocols, and more recent ones such as IEC 61850 and IEEE C37.118 (PMUs). SCADA collects all this information in real time to:
In order to overcome the growing challenge with alarm floods overwhelming control room operators, GE AEMS now offers Intelligent Alarm Processor (IAP). IAP is a powerful application capable of:
These core generation applications of an energy management system operate in regulated or non-regulated markets. The applications are renewable-ready to manage a wind farm, PV injection, and storage (batteries):
Generation Control and Optimization benefits:
At the Heart of the Advanced EMS solution, Network Security and Optimization ensures the network will not collapse while optimizing the operations. Key applications includes:
Network Security and Optimization Benefits:
GE Forecasting models and monitors renewable and distributed energy resources, forecasting energy production for look-ahead analysis.
AEMS Real-Time Multipoint Analysis (look-ahead) forecasts potential risks and AEMS Security Enhancements provides recommendations for remedial actions to operators, to optimize generation dispatch and control, and for overall improvement in grid security.
Renewable Energy solution benefits:
AEMS now embeds WAMS as an integral component. Network security and efficiency is augmented as a result of data resolution provided by phasor data and associated analysis. Coupled with a model approach, hybrid EMS-WAMS can provide powerful insights for operators.
Renewable generation has led to a massive displacement of system inertia, requiring enhanced system visibility, and understanding to deliver fast-acting response services. Effective inertia measures the combined inertia-like effects of rotating machines, passive load responses, and active generator controls. GE Effective Inertia metering is nonintrusive, with no injection of forced stimulation into the network. WAMS data and analytics measures effective inertia. Coupled with WAMS control, fast frequency response provides full set application.
Effective Inertia benefits:
Real-Time System Restoration Manager benefits:
The Dispatch Training Simulator (DTS) is a perfect replication of a real power grid. It can be initialized from a real time and historian snapshot. The Dynamic Dispatch Training Simulator (Dynamic DTS) captures transient behavior of the power system following a disturbance or switching action. It provides sub-second simulated phasor data in the DTS environment. Dynamic DTS is a fundamental solution to enable the training of WAMS applications to facilitate operator adoption.
DTS and Dynamic DTS benefits:
GE AEMS is available with both options: DTS (standalone) and Dynamic DTS integrated with DTS.
AEMS provides a unified intelligent platform to manage data and provide operational intelligence from analytics.
