New dispositions in the field of energy production
01.12.2023 – DSO INFORMATION REPORT PROJECT OMIMUM-OBSERVABILITY MEASURE PLANTS >1 MEGAWATT
With Resolution 540/2021/R/eel, ARERA defined the responsibilities for the development and maintenance of the technological solutions necessary for data exchange between Terna (TSO), distribution companies (DSO) and electricity production plants with a capacity equal to or greater than 1 MW (SGU Significant Grid User) connected or to be connected to the Medium Voltage grids for the safe operation of the national electricity system, the timing of implementation of data exchange and the necessary adjustments by producers, and the methods for covering costs.
According to the new regulation, the operators of production plants with a power output equal to or greater than 1 MW are responsible for the installation and maintenance of the field equipment called “Central Plant Controller” (CCI) and the related communication system, necessary for data exchange in accordance with Terna’s Grid Code, according to the modalities indicated in the updated Annexes “O” and “T” to the CEI 0-16 standard.
Consequently, DSOs are obliged to adapt their instruments and systems for the implementation of Observability. Adaptation to the standard therefore means managing a new TLC, hardware and system infrastructure capable of collecting CCI measurements and sending them to Terna.
With the aim of creating new and more high-performance solutions, to be included in its services to be offered to electricity distributors also with the aim of reducing the per-capita costs of individuals, psaier.energies has worked to identify an innovative and highly technological solution for the centralised management of communications from several CCIs to TERNA.
Without territorial and/or geographical limits, in full compliance with the standard and using secure protocols, psaier.energies is now able to make available to DSOs who request it, the first complete solution capable of enabling observability in accordance with ARERA resolution 540/2021/R/EEL.
psaier.energies‘s proposal to DSOs falls within the context of the CEI 0-16 standard, annexes O and T, and requires that all production plants connected to medium voltage above 1MW, where the CCI equipment is present, be able to communicate with the competent DSO through the IEC61850 protocol secure according to IEC62351, and then redirect this measurement to Terna.

Psaier.energies buys utilities software from Terranova
“With the signing of the agreement with Terranova, Psaier.energies is the first service company in Italy to launch a project capable of making systems available to small and medium-sized utilities that by their nature would have been economically inaccessible,” said CEO, Eugen Psaier.
07.08.2023 – Psaier.energies recently signed an agreement with Terranova, a company that produces telemetry equipment and software solutions for the utility, water and environmental sectors.
The company acquired Terranova’s software suite to offer small and medium-sized utilities a high-level digital solution to manage their electricity distribution network. A digital suite that would have been economically unaffordable for this target audience.
These software tools manage all processes in the energy distribution sector, thus ensuring the Meter to Cash process. Metering, billing and payments are in fact a fundamental part of the activities carried out by utilities in the Gas & Power market and it is therefore essential that they are managed using comprehensive tools.
Meter to Cash applications generally include everything needed for customer management, from master data and billing to collections and regulatory reports.
The Terranova suite acquired by Psaier.energies includes:
- RETIENERGY: Legacy for the management of all electricity distribution
- TAMM-MDM: Measurement Management System – daily time curves and period readings
- TWFA: modules and apps for managing and automatically assigning work orders to and from your Legacy systems
- TAMM-MOBILE: app for the management of Android devices for the configuration of field devices and synchronisation with the central AMI system.
Psaier.energies already has a project underway with Enel-Gridspertise to provide its customers with an advanced AMI (Advanced Meter Infrastructure) whose main system, the Beat Suite, is responsible for managing and configuring the devices installed in the field, performing utility management work, and collecting metering data. And Psaier.energies completes the integration of its systems.
