Digitization of the Energy Market

Energy suppliers need to change the way they think. Instead of merely selling green energy, they also need to organize and market the flexibility that is required for maintaining stability on the electrical grid. This means that the energy system needs to be controllable from production to consumption using intelligent communication networks. WAGO supports digitizing the energy sector and design of smart grids with state-of-the-art control and measurement technology, along with software solutions that enable a simple and secure connection to the cloud.

Renewable Energy Generation

As the proportion of renewable energy sources increases, decentralized suppliers and substations must be consistently monitored. This data must be archived, analyzed and transmitted securely. WAGO's automation systems provide the solution: They are compact, support many interfaces and fieldbus protocols and offer a high level of availability – even in bitter cold or high heat. Thanks to the intrinsically safe Ex i modules for the modular WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM, usage in hazardous areas, like biogas plants, is no problem.

Integrating Decentralized Suppliers

In virtual power plants, decentralized generators like wind turbines, storage facilities and controllable loads become a flexible (and adjustable) backup. Intelligently synchronizing these reduces loads on the power grid. WAGO's telecontrollers make it easier to combine them: They meet the requirements of the VHPready 4.0 communication standard, ensuring trouble-free connection of systems to the virtual power plant. VHPready functions like a translator so that control centers and systems understand one another.

Energy Grids

The grids, including their automation and telecontrol technology, are due for modernization. WAGO's controllers provide important grid data, allowing grid operators to intervene with automated control as needed. In the field of gas and heat supply as well, WAGO's technology grants control and access to all data within the systems connected to the grids from any connected location. With the special security concept of the PFC200 Controller, WAGO follows all relevant cybersecurity guidelines.

Energy Storage Systems

Storage systems compensate for fluctuating green electrical generation, reducing load on the power grid. WAGO’s telecontrol technology is at the heart of storage systems. It records all measured values, such as the feed-in data of solar plants or wind turbines, and enables monitoring and customer-specific control of the storage. For example, if the mains frequency increases due to high feed-in from renewables, the battery, power-to-heat or power-to-gas plant receives the order to draw excess current from the grid.

Energy Production

With increasing decentralization and fluctuating power generation, the individual elements of the energy system must be intelligently linked to each other. WAGO offers many solutions for these challenges:

  • Acquisition and monitoring of energy data
  • Communication via telecontrol protocols
  • Solar and wind farm management
  • Energy storage management

Power distribution

In order for green electricity to be transmitted freely and distributed safely to even the smallest branch, the power grid must be modernized. WAGO has numerous solutions for this:

  • Feed-in management according to EEG
  • Control and regulation of medium-voltage systems, for example
  • Telecontrol solutions for providing control energy
  • Cybersecurity

The Tailored Large Storage Battery

With a scalable hybrid energy storage system of lead acid and lithium ion batteries, the battery expert HOPPECKE from Brilon is allowing new flexibility in power supply.
Customer application

Caution! Bat Crossing

The goals of a wind power operator are to optimize switch-off times and increase yield. Where winged animals rule the skies, it has been necessary to reckon with costly downtimes – but Senvion is showing how to change that. With the help of WAGO, the wind turbine manufacturer offers operators the possibility of reacting even more flexibly to changes, for example: bat conservation.

Customer application

Digitization as the Basis of Sector Coupling

Sector coupling, digitization and customer orientation – these are the focuses of the energy service provider Avacon Natur. They increase the efficiency of the energy systems and district heating systems and provides demand-driven information. Above all, sector coupling – integrated control for heat, electrical and electromobility – requires digital data acquisition.

Customer application

Intelligent Control of a Battery Swarm

The “SchwarmSpeicher Allgäu” swarm battery system stabilizes the low voltage network in and around the Bavarian town of Kempten. For monitoring and controlling the distributed storage systems, egrid, the specialist for intelligent distribution grids, relies on WAGO controllers, due to flexibility, reliability and service quality.
