Every Network Station under Control
RheinEnergie regularly modernizes its local network stations (LNS), replacing old technology with new, as part of its contract with the network operator, Rheinisch NETZGesellschaft (RNG). This supplier now aims to do even more: The distribution network it to become more intelligent as well. “Our supply area is quite enormous. If a fault occurs in Lindlar requiring a maintenance team, during rush hour, for example, then it takes a good bit of time before they are on site,” explains Markus-Oliver Maitz, system planner in Technical Network Service at RheinEnergie. The maintenance team then has to locate the problem on site. If the control center can narrow the fault down to a single networks station, then the problem can be eliminated faster.
