WAGO in Power Engineering
Telecontrol Connection of Customer Transfer Stations
Simple network connection of decentralized power plants, storage systems and load customers – for telecontrol connection of customer systems to medium-voltage networks from e.on, Westnetz, EnBW and EWE, WAGO provides free communication libraries to download – in accordance with the respective technical connection rules. Or could it be a complete control cabinet including software parameterization?
Power plant controllers help power plants achieve grid-compatible feed-in management at the grid connection point (GCP).
WAGO Power Plant Control allows plant operators and system integrators to meet the requirements for these controllers that are set on the grid side – flexibly and reliably. The solution is certified per VDE-AR-N 4110 and 4120.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
