Established 2015 in Brisbane Queensland, Applied Power Technologies is a power system engineering consulting firm and the Australian Pacific representative for a range of the Siemens power system analysis software applications including PSS®CAPE and PSS®E and associated data management applications such as PSS®ODMS and PSS®MOD.
The PSS®CAPE Computer Aided Protection Engineering simulation software was developed by Siemens Industry Inc., formally Electrocon International Incorporated (Electrocon), a company operating in the USA since 1981 which developed an international presence servicing over 200 companies in 50 countries.
PSS®E is a power system simulation and analysis tool for power transmission operations and planning. PSS®E has achieved “industry standard” status being one of the leading analysis tools for HV steady state and dynamic analysis. It is used in over 145 countries around the world by utilities and consultants.
Applied Power Technologies aligns with the forward-looking focus of Siemens Industry Inc. It provides consulting and training services, using the Siemens software, that address the emerging needs of today’s power system engineers. These services extend far beyond conventional steady state analysis, protection grading and dynamic simulations. They provide exceptional efficiencies for the detailed modelling and sophisticated analysis required to ensure system security and the stability and the sensitivity and coordination of complete protection systems across wide area networks under power system steady state conditions and post fault system dynamic responses characterized by fluctuating frequency, voltages and power transfers.
Applied Power Technologies is staffed by professional engineers, with years of electricity industry experience in utilities and consulting firms, who understand the real world protection space, the dynamic behavior of power systems and embedded and renewable generation and the mandates from government and regulatory agencies governing the interrelationships between these quantities.
