Respond proactively to the decentralized structures in energy supply: with end-to-end telecommunications networks for smart grids, from high-to medium-voltage and all the way to households. The benefits we offer: long-term experience in both telecommunications and energy technology, tested, standardized, and customer-specific solutions along with a global presence as a technology leader.
In the past, grid control was the sole application in classic high-voltage substations, and a legacy communication infrastructure (serial and analog interfaces) has generally been used. This configuration specified narrow-band bitrates only.
The massive changes within the energy generation structure, with unpredictable infeed of renewables as well as the deregulation of the energy markets, now place high demands on the communication solutions of transmission utilities. In order to guarantee grid stability as well as to optimize the investment (CAPEX) and the maintenance strategy, the new digital high-voltage substations generate a significant amount of data. These new applications and devices require a broadband communication infrastructure such as IP and Ethernet inside (LAN) and outside (WAN) of the substation to meet these new demands. And, last but not least, cyber security is an integral part of the communication solution.
In terms of the decentralization of energy supply, the reliable management of power supply systems is becoming increasingly challenging. This development goes hand-in-hand with the rapid growth in the demand for communications. Solutions are manifold – but we put it all together: with a secure, reliable, and economical power supply that is closely linked to a fast, efficient, and dependable communication infrastructure.
