Hitachi Energy launches digital twin for power grids

Hitachi Energy has announced the launch of IdentiQ, a digital twin solution for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) converter stations, STATCOMs, and other power quality assets.

IdentiQ clusters all the relevant asset information, analytics, and operational data into one digital location.

The twin includes 3D interactive visualisation of the complete asset, combined with one-click access to all the associated plant and equipment information, including engineering documentation, operational and maintenance procedures, safety training and live operational data for monitoring and analytics.

IdentiQ aims to make HVDC and power quality assets more:

  • Sustainable and eco-efficient – by enabling comprehensive remote analysis and support and by digitalising paper-based information on older installations
  • Flexible – by adapting to continuously changing asset performance needs over the entire life cycle
  • Secure – by complying with industry-leading cybersecurity standards and protecting all asset data and information from being misplaced or destroyed; and safer, by providing virtual training on on-site procedures, required clothing and evacuation routes before visiting a site.

IdentiQ integrates with a range of enterprise business systems, including Hitachi’s Lumada platform and the Lumada suite of Asset and Work Management software, and together they provide system-wide visibility – from the site to the boardroom.

Dr Mostafa AlGuezeri, managing director of Hitachi Energy for the UAE, Gulf, Near East and Pakistan, said: “IdentiQ is a game-changing digital twin solution built on our unique domain expertise and leadership in power grid technologies and innovation.

“It is a significant addition to Hitachi Energy’s digital offering and supports our customers’ efforts to continuously enhance the efficiency and reliability of their grid investments.”
