DIgSILENT GmbH at Cigré 2002, Paris

Dr. Markus Pöller and his colleague Dr. Walter Sattinger have made more than 50 full scale PowerFactory software presentations at the DIgSILENT booth at Cigré 2002 in Paris. They said "we were very much surprised on the specific interest on complex applications in modern transmission and distribution system analysis. Obviously, the leading position of the PowerFactory software, especially in modern wind power analysis and design is making our software the first choice". They received also a very positive response on it's integrated capabilities allowing to analyze all relevant steady state and transient effects within the same software environment. As modern wind power offshore applications – especially when considering latest generation unit technology with unit sizes of up to 5 MW per unit – are calling for high precision modeling and analysis capabilities, PowerFactory is the most efficient and cost-effective tool to cover all relevant aspects such as:
