DIgSILENT has set standards and trends in power system modeling, analysis, and simulation for more than 25 years. The proven advantages of the PowerFactory software are its overall functional integration, its applicability to the modeling of generation-, transmission-, distribution- and industrial grids, and the analysis of these grids’ interactions. With PowerFactory Version 15, DIgSILENT presents a further step towards seamless integration of functionality and data management within a multi-user environment.

DIgSILENT PowerFactory is the most economical solution, as data handling, modeling capabilities, and overall functionality replace a set of other software systems, thereby minimizing project execution costs and training requirements. The all-in-one PowerFactory solution promotes a highly-optimized workflow. DIgSILENT PowerFactory is easy to use and caters to all standard power system analysis needs, including high-end applications in new technologies such as wind power and distributed generation and the handling of very large power systems. In addition to the stand-alone solution, the PowerFactory engine can be smoothly integrated into GIS, DMS, and EMS supporting open system standards.

Here are some key features of “DIgSILENT PowerFactory”:

  • Geographic Diagrams and enhanced tools for visualizing topological network structures
  • Optimal Power Supply Restoration functions
  • Enhanced Reliability Assessment for balanced and unbalanced networks
  • Voltage Profile optimization for bi-directional power flows
