Analyse, structure and repair

SOPTIM ProFile is a tool for easy and efficient processing of time series data. Time series are the essential in energy industry, especially for forecasts and accounting. The import of load profiles in quarter-hour resolution is the first step of a long process chain in the context of forecasts and accounting.

This first step is sometimes challenging, because market stakeholders and data providers do not send load profiles in MSCONS format, but use Excel and CSV formats with completely arbitrary structures often lacking any description. Errors in the interpretation of this key data generate serious effects and further errors in forecasting and accounting. These could be incorrect units or faulty handling of daylight savings time, for example.

Automation is necessary, in some cases also pre-processing! Usually, sales experts do not know the sender and source. In order to use these files, manual processing with annoying individual analysis and manual correction is required.

SOPTIM ProFile analyses, structures, repairs and speeds up the this process rapidly. With heuristic methods, time series files are scanned for energy data and times and the associated master data such as meter point descriptions and OBIS code are found and recognized. Valid time series can be converted into a common format in one step and can be easily processed further in subsequent processes.

The user interface of SOPTIM ProFile is simple and clear. Time series files are moved into the application by drag & drop, the analysis results and load profile data are clearly displayed, suggestions for corrections are offered, validated data is exported with one click only. A graphical visualisation that includes aggregated identification data of energy and power, completes the scope. A small tool with large benefits. Simply unpack, install and go!
