Power transmission and distribution Monitoring, controlling, and protecting subsystems in the energy sector

Renewable power generation plants and volatile purchase quantities are forcing a change in electrical power supply grids. That is why digitalization solutions for the efficient development and conversion of grids receive a lot of attention these days. The recorded data makes it possible to conduct needs-based planning; reliable, decentralized operation; and predictive maintenance of the transmission and distribution grids. The increase in electrification is also allowing the electricity generation sector to be coupled with the traffic and heating sectors.

Today, we already support a large number of grid operators with our comprehensive range of services, from the planning stages 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 plants and new loads such as the charging infrastructure for e-mobility is placing new technical requirements on distribution grid operators. Aside from challenges related to voltage stability or reverse power flow, 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 with solar panels, wind turbines, and energy storage systems

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.
