PSI Supports Software Development in EUMONIS Research Project


Platform optimises maintenance of systems for regenerative electricity production

PSI subsidiary PSIPENTA Software Systems GmbH, as a partner in the consortium in the EUMONIS (Software and System Platform for Energy and Environmental Monitoring Systems) is assuming the responsibility for the IT-based planning and controlling of the maintenance processes. The research project is being conducted by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF)

The goal of the research project, initiated in Munich on 7 September 2010, is the design and realisation of concepts for the future operation of systems for the generation of renewable energies. The life-cycle costs of renewable energy plants should be reduced and efficient operation allowed, particularly in the field of installation, maintenance and malfunction compensation. To that end, EUMONIS aims to transfer existing processes and software modules for maintenance from the field of industrial production and to develop standard interfaces.

With the participation, PSIPENTA expects important impetus for the further optimisation of existing and future maintenance projects in the field of renewable energies as well. The software company will apply its expertise from mechanical and plant engineering and, in addition, will access know-how from the PSI Group in the field of smart grids, such as the communicative networking and controlling of network components, generators, storage and consumers for an energy- and cost-efficient system operation.

The Siemens AG is heading the consortium; along with PSI partners are, amongst others, RWTH Aachen, the University of Leipzig, Nordex, SKF, Schott Solar and E.ON.
