The Phoenix Contact office and warehouse in Australia will be closed during the holidays from 3.30pm Friday the 23rd of December and will reopen Monday the 9th of January 2023.
Power transmission and distribution Monitoring, controlling, and protecting subsystems in the energy sector
Renewable power generation systems and volatile purchase quantities are forcing a change in the electrical power supply grids. Digitalization solutions for the efficient development and conversion of grids are therefore currently in the spotlight. The data collected makes needs-based planning, reliable, decentral operation, and predictive maintenance of the transmission and distribution grids possible. The increase in electrification is also allowing the electricity generation sector to be coupled with the traffic and heating sectors.
We are already supporting a large number of grid operators with our comprehensive range of services, from planning right through to successful project realization. Here, the focus is on our reliable and innovative products, solutions, and range of services.
With our comprehensive service portfolio – from connection technology right through to the automation of substations – we provide tailor-made products and solutions for all voltage levels.
Reliable transmission grids
With our comprehensive portfolio of connection and network technology, we ensure the flow of power as well as signal and data communication. At the same time, our large range of marking and mounting materials simplifies commissioning and subsequent service contracts. The FAME testing technology, for example, enables a reduction in the time necessary for testing protective devices. Our portfolio of signaling devices displays system and error states both on site and in the network.
Efficient distribution grid automation
The connection of renewable power generation systems and new loads such as the charging infrastructure for e-mobility is placing new technical requirements on distribution grid operators. Along with the challenges faced in maintaining the voltage or when the direction of power flow reverses, the temperature ranges of the installed equipment also have to be considered.
Our comprehensive service portfolio is designed to protect, monitor, and automate systems in electrical power distribution, ensuring reliable power supply even under challenging conditions.
Volatile feed-in management
To ensure grid stability, system operators must be able to control the volatile feed-in of power generation systems and energy storage systems depending on the load and the generation situation. Feed-in management is a specially regulated grid protection measure to reduce grid congestion.
Whether in components or with our ready-to-install control cabinet, we provide everything to ensure reliable and cost-effective feed-in management. Our ready-to-install solution already takes all necessary components, such as the communication connection, control, and optional protection technology into consideration. Our comprehensive solution allows you to feed electricity into the power grid in accordance with VDE-AR-N 4110/-20.
Reliable and state-of-the-art electrical power supply grids Monitoring, controlling, and protecting systems in the energy sector
Transmission grid and distribution grid operators are constantly modernizing and developing their grids. With our comprehensive service portfolio, we support grid operators in the digitalization and optimal adaption and development of their equipment. The focus is on security of supply, based on high-availability and technically mature products and solutions. The use of proven and innovative technology combines reliability and cost-effectiveness.
The use of state-of-the-art remote control, automation, and protection technology ensures efficient system operation in low- and medium-voltage grids. Reliable and cost-efficient operation, however, starts with the selection of a large number of passive components, such as plant marking and wiring. Our products are used from power generation to the load.
