Hitachi Energy has launched IdentiQ, its digital twin solutions for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) and power quality solutions. IdentiQ is the digital twin of a HVDC converter station, STATCOM or other power quality solution. It provides all the relevant asset information, analytics and operational data in an intuitive and easy-to-navigate dashboard, which users can customize to match their needs. IdentiQ includes 3D interactive visualization 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 is meant to enable customers to improve the management of power grid assets by clustering all information into one digital location for seamless access by all operational functions.
IdentiQ makes HVDC and power quality assets more:
Sustainable and eco-efficient — by enabling comprehensive remote analysis and support and by digitalizing paper-based information on older installations;
Flexible — by adapting to continuously changing asset performance needs over the entire life cycle;
Secure — by complying with 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.
