SIMATIC Energy Suite V15.1 - Integrated energy management in the TIA Portal
As an integrated option for the TIA Portal, SIMATIC Energy Suite links energy management with automation, thus creating energy transparency in the production system. The considerably simplified configuration of energy measuring components from the SIMATIC, SENTRON, SINAMICS, SIRIUS and SIMOCODE product families significantly reduces the configuration overhead.

SIMATIC Energy Suite V15.1 is now available.
SIMATIC Energy Suite V15.1 replaces the direct predecessor version SIMATIC Energy Suite V15 as an independent product and full version. The standard delivery of SIMATIC Energy Suite V15 ends with the availability of SIMATIC Energy Suite V15.1.
  • SIMATIC Energy Suite V15.1 can be requested as a free download via the following entry 109761410
  • As part of the Energy Suite Software Update Service, delivery takes place automatically.

Licensing V15.1
The license purchased for the V15 is also valid for the V15.1.

1. Overview of the range of functions

The following properties characterize SIMATIC Energy Suite: 

  • Integrated into the TIA Portal and automation

  • Simple and intuitive configuration instead of complex manual programming

  • Automatic generation of the PLC energy program for S7-1500 controllers (as of FW 2.0)

  • User-friendly integration of measuring components from the Siemens portfolio and from other vendors

  • Configuration of electrical and non-electrical media (e.g. kWh, m³, kg, unit)

  • Archiving in the data log1) of WinCC Professional or the SIMATIC memory card in the PLC

  • Interfacing to SIMATIC Energy Manager PRO

1) Archiving on redundant WinCC stations is not supported

New in V15.1:

  • New predefined HMI screens as part of the Energy Suite library provide fast and easy visualization in WinCC Runtime (Professional, Advanced, Comfort)
  • The Energy Suite report tool now also provides cost center reports. Simple cost transparency can be created in production by storing price tariffs and assigning cost centers.
  • Single-axis SINAMICS devices can now also be selected in Energy Suite as energy data source if they were integrated via Startdrive (previously integration was only supported via GSDML)
  • Many minor usability enhancements to simplify and speed up the engineering workflow.

2. Design

SIMATIC Energy Suite consists of the following components:

Engineering components (TIA Portal)

  • Adds new, integrated editors for configuration of the energy measurement points to the TIA Portal

  • Includes S7 program generator for automatic generation of the complete S7 program for acquisition, processing, buffering and archiving (WinCC Professional or SIMATIC memory card) of the energy values relevant to billing (power rating and energy)

WinCC Runtime components (toolbox for WinCC Professional)

  • Export tool for creation of basic energy reports of the energy data archived periodically in WinCC Professional to Excel files

  • Transfer tool for buffered communication of the periodic energy values relevant to billing from S7-1500 CPUs to the tag archive of WinCC Professional.

S7 Energy Efficiency Monitor for Machines
Evaluation of energy efficiency of machines with the S7 instruction 'S7 Energy Efficiency Monitor for Machines'

  • The Energy Suite is primarily aimed at the needs of plant operators and supports plant-wide energy transparency, starting with the supply. The new function 'S7 Energy Efficiency Monitor for Machines' specifically addresses machine builders (OEMs) and facilitates providing machines with functions to make energy usage transparent, rounding-off the functional scope of the Energy Suite - also at the machine level.
  • The function can be easily integrated as an S7 instruction in the S7 controller of the machine since it is already included in the scope of delivery of STEP 7 (TIA Portal) (in the S7 instruction library).
  • The S7 instruction offers the following functions:
Production-related and standardized determination of energy consumption and efficiency ratios in machines according to VDMA 34179 (e.g. kWh/unit, m³/unit)
Up to 10 types of energy per machine (e.g. electric, compressed air, water)
Up to 8 individually definable operating states (e.g. production, standby, off)
Easy integration into machine control system (S7-1200/1500) and on-site visualization of the efficiency status
Automatic long-term measurements (e.g. batch, shift)
Preparation of an efficiency report (.csv) for detailed evaluation and documentation
