ABB software solution to underpin Polandís national electricity market

ABB Abilityô Network Manager Market Management System to strengthen Polish power network and enable reliable supply of electricity


Zurich, Switzerland – WEBWIRE

ABB has been selected by Polandís national transmission system operator Polskie Sieci Elektronergetyczne SA (PSE) to deliver its ABB Ability Market Management System (MMS), a state-of-the-art software solution. This is the first installation in Continental Europe to provide a detailed network model which will support the safe, reliable and efficient operation of PSEís national power network and its interface within the European energy market. The initiative is part of Polandís efforts to upgrade and modernize the countryís grid.

Polandís transmission network is currently interconnected with most of its European neighbors. These connections enable Poland to participate in the European electricity market. But they also expose the countryís national power system to variable electricity flows between countries, which can result in power irregularities, disruptions and outages.†

PSE SA ís decision to upgrade its systems by implementing the advanced MMS solution from ABB will facilitate the utilityís efforts to integrate with the European electricity network and better manage its domestic electricity market. ABBís MMS will help to balance national electricity demand and supply in real time while maximizing capacity utilization of the countryís transmission network. These new capabilities can help ensure greater energy security across the entire power supply chain and facilitate energy exchange within Europe.

ďWe are pleased to build on our longstanding partnership with PSE SA with our latest ABB Ability Market Manager software solution,ď said Massimo Danieli, head of ABBís Grid Automation business, within the companyís Power Grids division. ďWe look forward to continue supporting the digital transformation of Polandís power network and bringing reliable power supply to millions, reinforcing our position as a partner of choice for enabling a stronger, smarter and greener grid.Ē

ABB has worked with PSE S.A. for many years, supporting the extension and modernization of the Polish power grid. These upgrade needs are driven by increasing demand for energy in urban areas, integration of new sources of renewable energy and the development of interconnections like the ABB installed LitPol high-voltage direct current (HVDC) link, which enables power trading between Lithuania and Poland. ABB also has a major transformers manufacturing presence in Lodz with locally manufactured units contributing significantly to the countryís power infrastructure.
