CYME Gateway -
Creating the Network Model for CYME
As utilities progress toward the era of smart grid with the implementation of smart meters, devices and systems, a growing amount of detailed information becomes available to allow operating the distribution network more effectively than ever before. The CYME Gateway solution is the bridge between your traditional or smart grid data and the CYME power engineering analysis software.
Smart Network Model for Distribution System Analysis
The CYME Gateway solution extracts all necessary information from your GIS and other enterprise systems to automatically generate up-to-date and accurate distribution network models, ready for planning and operational studies executed with the CYME software.
Extraction from GIS… and more
One of the biggest challenges for distribution system engineers is to have a complete, up-to-date network model to work with. The CYME Gateway solution eases the technical complexity that distribution system engineers have to face in gathering and integrating relevant system data into a single network model. It extracts the required information and builds the most complete network possible for the CYME software, on demand or automatically.
By combining and bringing the smart grid data into a distribution system analysis tool, DG penetration can be assessed, demand growth and network capacity can be optimized and power engineering planning can be done more efficiently.
Powerful and User-Friendly
The CYME Gateway solution interfaces with systems such as:
- GIS – Network topology
- AMI/AMR/MDM, CIS – Load information
- SCADA – Feeder demand
- DMS – Dynamic setting, IED readings
- OMS – Actual switch status, failure history
- Protective device data: relays, fuses, reclosers
As the network evolves from a traditional grid to a smarter grid, the CYME Gateway solution always provides an updated network model for the CYME analysis software, which can represent accurately operation conditions of the distribution network for improved support for operation engineers. It can furthermore automate network calculations to allow more accurate network studies.
Your Network, Your Gateway
Through its intuitive interface, users can select the feeders, substations and any complementary information they want to extract and import into the CYME network model.
The CYME Gateway solution can be customized to perform operations such as:
- Advanced electrical data validation
- Network calculations in batch mode using CYME/Python®
- Automated load allocation
- Protective device coordination verification
Other available add-on functionalities include:
- Identification of GIS data discrepancies
- Quality control via a staging database
- User-friendly web-based reporting
With all its functionalities, the CYME Gateway solution is without a doubt the perfect link between your enterprise systems and the CYME power engineering software.
