Siemens has been selected by Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) for the implementation of the eMeter EnergyIP, a meter data management system (MDMS), as part of SmartGrid demonstration project.
The project, which is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, will demonstrate standards-based interoperability between the MDMS and other KCP&L SmartGrid systems.
Siemens will provide offer configuration, testing and integration services into KCP&L’s information technology systems.
In addition to the integration of eMeter EnergyIP, KCP&L’s SmartGrid project includes Siemens Smart-Substation controller and Spectrum Power distribution management system (DMS).
The Smart-Substation controller provides an intelligent substation information technology platform to enable real-time substation and feeder automation, Volt/VAr control and demand management.
The Spectrum Power DMS facilitates operations information management and security.
