I was talking to a member recently who is dealing with a PSIM having challenges. They are trying to figure out what to do next.
This is one of the saddest and most difficult risks of PSIMs. Often, you have a combination of the following:
- The installation never delivered what was promised, given the complexity of pulling everything together.
- Key functionalities common used are not available on the PSIM, motivating users to continue using the underlying ones.
- Problems with integrations exist and/or are exacerbated as subsystems are upgraded to new versions.
- The price of maintaining or overcoming these things remains substantial (tens of thousands per year even for a modest system is not extreme).
Who has PSIM systems deployed and what are your experiences?
