Ventyx, an ABB company, says energy service provider E.ON will use a suite of Ventyx software solutions as a part of a new smart grid control center in Sweden.

E.ON already uses Ventyx's supervisory control and data acquisition system, and it will now add IT solutions such as business analytics, network optimization, load forecasting, demand response and distributed resource management. The companies say that combining IT and operational technologies will enable E.ON to attain high levels of grid automation, sensing and visibility; achieve greater control of distributed generation; and further support regulatory compliance.

"Ultimately, the smart grid is about optimizing power delivery to ensure customer satisfaction," says Peter Sigenstam, vice president and head of E.ON Innovation Centre Distribution. "To support this goal, the next generation of smart grid control centers will need to handle unprecedented operational demands."

The new control center will be installed in Malmo, Sweden, and is anticipated to be operational in early 2014.
