KEY FACTS AND FEATURES

CIM-based Network Model and Topology Management

CIM based Data Repository

Stores individual CIM data (entities, properties and relations) as data (information) points and not files

Microsoft SQL Server is the underlaying RDMS

IMM (Information Model Management) for stored data is done according to CIM and CGMES standards

Multiple Model Repositories allow you to have separate model groups within the same production environment.

Version Control System

The version control concept is far more than a simple data audit trail

Enables branching, merge and rollback operations

The versions are assigned to CIM change sets (not files)

Advance operations in power systems domain based on CGMES and CIM best practices

Information is accessible via several presentation layers:
– graphical layout (connectivity)
– tabular browsing
– Python scripting
– Querying

Enterprise level role based security, user authentication and rights management

Enterprise level role based security, user authentication and rights management

Advanced engineering and integration tools

Validation and rule engine – fully configurable including custom user configurations

Internal Power Flow calculation

Python API interface

RESTful Web API Interface for Integration

TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS

CURRENT SOLUTION: requires running several isolated IT systems, containing and consuming information about Network Models.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS offers a single repository concept for all consumers of the Network Model.
IPS also supports multiple users, model parts, boundary parts, workspaces, and model assemblies.

CURRENT SOLUTION: has difficulties with Network Model Data Set Validation.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS provides Network Model Data Set Import and Export Validation with predefined and customer defined rules.

CURRENT SOLUTION: has difficulties with Integration due to the different system identifiers.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS offers a CIM Model based on the latest standard for Import and Export data that can be integrated to any system.
For users of PSS(r)E V33 and 34, CAPE, SINCAL and other systems capable of using IEC61970 CIM XML Standard, IPS can furnish data exchange and easy integration.

CURRENT SOLUTION: requires considerable engineering time to support network elements and substation single-line diagram management.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS provides time saving Automatic or Semi-Automatic Single Line Diagram Creation based on CIM data.

CURRENT SOLUTION: has an inability to provide a single source of information to the entire IT system.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS will provide integration of the Network Model with Asset Management Data (IT/OT integration).

CURRENT SOLUTION: only tracks current version of the network model.

IPS SOLUTION: IPS offers complete audit trail over each granular change in the network model.
