    The challenge

    The data and topology models for the grids of power supply companies have grown over the past decades. Today, they can contain up to several million pieces of interlinked information. Furthermore, the need for data exchange is continually increasing, and, in Smart Grids, even more additional data has to be incorporated.

    High-quality network data models are therefore crucial for stable grid operation and of considerable value for the company. The challenge is to integrate the new open-access information requirements into existing operational and business infrastructures.
