MV outdoor distribution systems for a reliable grid

More availability and efficiency in overhead distribution lines and substations

Decarbonization, decentralization, digitalization – everything that will shape the energy systems of the future relies on the capacity of resilience of substations and distribution networks. Outdoor switching devices are essential components of medium-voltage distribution grids and are especially designed for a wide variety of applications and climatic conditions offering multiple benefits, from the optimization of less developed network environments to the use in smart grids. With our future-oriented outdoor portfolio, we offer increased efficiency, enhanced reliability and more sustainability. Suppliers and utilities benefit from improved availability and lower operational costs.

Smart Grids

Clever functions for reliable operation

To meet varying electricity demands, our advanced solutions enable to sense, monitor, communicate, and manage energy flows, as well as real-time electricity asset management. Smart grids are designed to maintain system resiliency, stability and reliability while allowing maximum renewable power generation connected to the grid at the same time. Flexible solutions for automatic protection and remote operation, supported by state-of-the-art communications for lightning-fast data exchange is the key to achieve this. We meet the demanding requirements of smart grids, from simple standard to highly sophisticated protection functions, for maximum selectivity up to monitoring, remote control, and advanced self-healing for overhead-line networks.
