This video displays the functionality of the Distance Protection Module which allows the user to enter relays with their settings or characteristics and get all voltage, current and impedance values seen by the relay.
This video displays the functionality of the Load Flow module in asymmetrical networks.
This video displays the functionality of the Optimal Capacitor Placement module which identifies the locations in the radial primary feeders of a distribution network, where the placement of shunt capacitors minimizes the MW losses.
This video displays the functionality of Optimal Separation Points module which eliminates all network meshes by changing the network topology. From the possible topology states, the procedure selects the one that minimizes network losses, considering all activated constraints and without isolated sub-systems.
This video displays the functionality of the NEPLAN Programming Library, a C/C++ API library, which allows user to access NEPLAN data and calculation engines to develop customized calculation algorithms through a C/C++ program. The compiler used for creating the C/C++ program, which is a dynamic link library (dll), is MS Visual Studio 2008 and later.
This module performs Load Flow studies for 3-, 2- and 1-phase AC and DC systems for meshed, looped and radial networks from HV to LV. It includes disperse generation models such as wind power, photovoltaic, small hydro, geothermic, etc. and provides a wide variety of calculation options to address specific applications for symmetrical and asymmetrical systems.

Due to incentive-based regulation and in particular the amendment from 2016, distribution system operators in Germany face increasing cost pressures. Structured asset management can be used as the foundation for a cost efficient use of the grid equipment. As part of this paper, a methodology will be presented for combination of strategic and operative elements of asset management in a holistic investment schedule. On the one hand, the main building block is strategic network planning for identifying the need for action based on future supply tasks, and on the other a structured assessment of the condition of current network equipment. This paper focuses on the methodology and results of the strategic network planning. The methodology for deriving an investment schedule based on status and strategy indices was applied to the distribution grid of Stadtwerke Ratingen GmbH.
Seit der Liberalisierung des Energiesektors und der Einführung der Anreizregulierung ist der Kostendruck auf die Netzbetreiber enorm gestiegen. Netzbetreiber müssen sich widersprechenden Zielen gerecht werden: die Kosten senken und eine hohe Versorgungssicherheit gewährleisten. Der Aufsatz zeigt anhand eines fiktiven Mittelspannungsnetzes die Vorteile einer Assetmanagementsoftware auf.
