Low-voltage geographic power system with iso-area for voltages
With PSS®SINCAL we offer a comprehensive, high-end power system analysis software solution for all of your power system planning needs. PSS SINCAL provides a full unbalanced power system model for high, medium, and low-voltage grids and supports you in the design, modeling and analysis of electrical power systems as well as pipe networks, such as water, gas, and district heating/cooling systems.
Through its modular and fully integrated design
PSS SINCAL enables a high level of customization according to individual needs, making it the optimal solution for all planning tasks in the areas of generation, transmission, distribution and industrial grids.
PSS SINCAL also provides the capability of solving a full range of tasks with its high-quality algorithms optimized for both accuracy and performance. User-defined applications can easily be developed with its object-oriented data model. Sophisticated case and data management facilitate the handling of complex projects including multi-user projects. PSS SINCAL can be easily integrated into systems such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), SCADA and Meter Data Management Systems (MDMS).
With the release of PSS®SINCAL V13.5, the new Integrated Capacity Analysis (ICA) module provides valuable decision support for integrating renewable power generation into your distribution system.

The GIS-like GUI is particularly beneficial for small companies without a GIS system
Handles large networks (e.g. > 50.000 nodes) with graphical display without delay
The complexity of data handling is adapted to the task to be solved
GUI icons behave like common Microsoft® Office® products
Interactive connection to internet for online and offline background maps
Integrated network editor and report generator (List & Label)
Topology / model - features like tracing, feeder evaluation etc. are possible
Different views of the same network model (synchronized)
Allows color coding of input data and results (theme maps) – ISO areas
Supports a “multi-dimensional” network model (views, layers, variants)
Embedding active diagrams
Offers a complete set of calculation modules based on a single database “all-in-one”, see Details
Optimized GUI for specific tasks
Re-uses components for a common look and feel
Use PSS SINCAL for the complete simulation of all kinds of networks (Gas, Water, Heating, Cooling, Electricity) and easy evaluation based on commercial databases
Use PSS NETOMAC for real time simulation e.g. in DSA or relay testing or for expert studies
Use PSS PDMS for the management of protection devices including provision of setting files for DIGSI
Workflow-driven system planning
Model management based on different databases (Microsoft® Access®, ORACLE®, SQL Server) - access from outside
Multi-project management – maintaining models of different users in one data base system (ORACLE® Database)
Multi-view of the same network model (e.g. schematic, geographical, network levels or areas, theme-based)
Variants (tree structure) support planning activities and offer comparison across all scenarios (input data, results, diagrams etc.)
“Include networks” allow temporary network linkage and re-configuration
Multi-user project management - parallel access of authorized (login, user roles) users to the same master model with administration and trouble shooting
“Database application” with fully open structure
Based on COM-server technology
Interfaces (Adaptors) for import and export are free of charge – “open system”. This allows integration into other systems without depending on Siemens integrators
“Engines” solution offered
Programming can be done extensively and with standards languages (VBA, VBS, C++, .net, Python, Java,…) and no special programming language has to be learned
The commercial database allows enhanced evaluation of results without the usage of an additional software
Interfaces to Smart Meter Systems (MDMS) are available
One single network model - from simple Bus-Branch model to full substation model that adapts during simulation
Different network models
- impedance model
- cost model
- routing model
Object oriented models support modeling from easy to very enhanced
- simple balanced model
- unbalanced model up to full 4-wire systems
- detailed user-defined models, e.g. for smart grids
- frequency-dependent enhancements
- dynamic enhancements
- equipment like breakers, meters, etc.
Can be configured for planning by time stamps, variants, include networks
No limitations in modeling (network structure, phase modeling or frequency)
