- The software allows students to learn about power system planning and gives students the analytical experience they will need in the future career.
- ITB will use this software on a daily basis as an educational tool in mastering power system.
Siemens Indonesia granted Power System Simulator for Engineering (PSS®E) and PSS®SINCAL licenses to the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) in order to prepare the graduates in the complex and competitive market of power systems.
“Siemens is working with ITB to provide students with the capability to perform power system studies with the world-leading PSS®E and PSS®SINCAL software tools. With the powerful PSS®E and PSS®SINCAL series software installed in the laboratory and also supported by Siemens experts, ITB can expect a deeper knowledge in the power system concepts for its students and researchers to master in power system study cases, especially in the Indonesian power grid,” stated Gerald Quaas, Head of Digital Grid Business Unit PT Siemens Indonesia.
The grant will allow ITB students to advance in the topic of power system planning and analysis. These topics have now become a necessity for both utilities and industries as there is an increasing complexity in the modern power generations, transmission and distribution systems especially due to the high penetration of renewable energy system. PSS®E and PSS®SINCAL can provide students the fundamentals experience in using the standard tools used at the power system planning at both utilities and industries. Real cases can be introduced to the students and the assessment can be simulated using these tools, therefore these tools will also be suitable not only for laboratory but also for bachelor thesis, master thesis and even dissertations.
“We appreciate Siemens Indonesia’s initiative in providing the opportunities for our engineering students to develop skills on power system planning through an early adoption of state-of-the-art software for electric power industry. By combining our research expertise with Siemens’ experience in power systems, we believe we can capitalize both PSS®E and PSS®SINCAL to provide the best technological solution for the Indonesian electricity sector.” Said Dr. Ir Nanang Hariyanto, MT, Head of Electrical Power Department from School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics ITB.
In this joint collaboration, Siemens will also provide ITB the necessary supports to install, configure and use the software which eventually will facilitate the rapid utilization of PSS®E and PSS®SINCAL within ITB.
