Berlin, 20 January 2020 – PSI Transcom GmbH will be presenting the integrated depot and charging management system PSIebus at the VDV Electric Bus Conference and Trade Fair ElekBu at the Estrel Hotel in Berlin (Stand 33) on 4 and 5 February 2020. The AI-based system ensures cost-effective and efficient conversion to alternatively driven bus fleets and extends the optimal use of all drive types from initial parallel operation to full E-bus operation.
When planning the deployment of vehicles, it automatically takes into account the current load conditions and the predicted remaining range of the e-buses. PSI's own optimization software, Qualicision, determines the next required work steps such as cleaning, refuelling, loading and workshop within seconds and assigns the vehicles to the next block in real time.
An integrated load and charging management also takes into account the electrotechnical part and monitors and controls the power supply. It forecasts, controls and regulates energy consumption, develops strategies for the existing charging infrastructure and monitors compliance with charging performance.
The new PSIebus system already reliably controls more than 200 buses at Germany's first E-bus depot, Hamburg Alsterdorf. As part of the conference program, PSI will be represented on 5 February in the Boulevard of Ideas with a presentation on PSIebus.
Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs almost 2,000 persons worldwide.
