PSS®ODMS for European TSOs / CGMES

What is PSS®ODMS (for European TSOs)?

PSS®ODMS is a data conversion + modeling product that supports European TSOs (particularly PSS®E users) at every stage of their CGMES compliance process.  It comes in three progressively more powerful editions that align with a typical TSO’s CGMES journey path.

European TSOs CGMES compliance

Entry point for CGMES data conversion
- Entry point for European TSO to comply with CGMES data format requirements
- Basic PSS®E <-> CGMES Data Conversion (import/export)

Solution for TYNDP and Forecast Case Creation
- “Project Modeling” function allows effortless maintenance of globally unique & persistent RDF:ID’s within planning models, per ENTSO-E regulations
- Easiest way for PSS®E users to support the TYNDP process & achieve compliance with new RDF:ID regulations
- Optional CGMES Forecast Case Creation Module generates solved D-1, D-2, W-1, etc. cases in CGMES format for compliance with new ENTSO-E regulations

Fully integrated model management solution across multiple systems
- Provides a single platform to manage all network model data across multiple systems (EMS, Planning Software, Asset Management System, GIS, etc. – or any combination thereof)
- Achieve globally unique & persistent RDF:IDs across your entire enterprise (including across Operations and Planning models)
- Vendor-neutral.  Uses industry standard open CIM interfaces
- Powerful GUI and model maintenance functions make it effortless to keep model data synchronized and up to date

Certified bu ENTSO-E


Typical reasons why a European TSO would need PSS®ODMS

  • ENTSO-E requires TSOs to comply with new CGMES requirements for data formatting
         - Achieving compliance requires a tool that can convert between PSS®E and CGMES format

  • ENTSO-E requires TSOs to comply with new CGMES requirements for RDF:ID persistence & uniqueness
         - Achieving compliance requires a means of achieving globally unique and persistent RDF:IDs – this is something that is made substantially easier with PSS®ODMS vs. manual process

  • New European Network Codes require TSOs to produce forecast (e.g. D-1, D-2, W-1, etc.) cases in CGMES format
         - Achieving compliance requires a tool that can produce these cases without introducing errors (due to data conversion and mapping), and without substantial manual overhead
         - PSS®ODMS allows effortless, automated, repeatable, and accurate production of solved forecast cases in CGMES format, giving you a turnkey compliance solution


Mapping of Market Problems to Features to Benefits

Market Problem

As a European TSO, I’m required by ENTSO-E to produce planning models in CGMES format (for example to support the biannual TYNDP process), but  my planning software only produces models in proprietary format.

As a European TSO, I’m required by ENTSO-E to maintain persistent and unique RDF:IDs in my planning models.

As a European TSO, I’m required by ENTSO-E to produce forecast (e.g. D-1, D-2, W-1, etc.) cases in CGMES format

As a European TSO, I’m required by ENTSO-E to maintain persistent and unique RDF:IDs across my entire enterprise (including across operations and planning).  These models are traditionally maintained in separate systems by separate owners.
