Easy connection of decentralized generation systems, storage systems and end customers – to help connect customer systems to the e.on, Westnetz, EnBW and EWE medium-voltage grids via telecontrol technology, WAGO provides communication libraries for download at no cost – corresponding to the specific technical connection rules of the application. Or perhaps a complete control cabinet – including software parameterization?
Why Telecontrol Technology Connection?
Decentralized generation systems and customer transfer stations that connect directly to a network operator's grid are to be connected via telecontrol technology. This is needed primarily for two reasons:
Both tasks – network operation purposes and feed-in management are to be implemented as combined in one telecontrol technology facility. The network operators regulate their respective requirements to the telecontrol technology connection of customer transfer stations to medium-voltage grids in what are referred to as grid guidelines, specifications and technical connection requirements (TABs).
For medium voltage, the distribution network operator provides a gateway that makes the required signal scope available at the communication interface – and these may be different: Westnetz, for example, provides an IP-based interface (IEC 60870-15-104); while a serial protocol (IEC 60870-5-101) was provided for the telecontrol technology connection to the medium voltage networks from e.on.
These interfaces then comprise the boundaries between the respective properties of the network operator and customer. On the customer side, then a corresponding telecontrol technology that can provides the required signal scope should be deployed.

Telecontrol Technology Connection – Simple, Scalable, Flexible
WAGO Telecontrol Technology has proven itself in the energy branch – especially in network telecontrol stations as data collection point and interface coordinator. In addition to myriad other protocols, it includes the requisite communication protocols IEC 60870-5-101, -103, -104 and Modbus® for telecontrol technology connection of energy generation plants and the necessary cybersecurity packages.
Most of the communication libraries for the telecontrol technology connection of generation plants are free and are already tuned to the respective specifications, or to the corresponding signal scope of the technical connection requirements (TABs) of the network operator and in coordination with WAGO telecontrol technology, the software can easily be parameterized.
As the all-around no-hassle package WAGO offers a plug-and-play solution control cabinets consisting of pre-wired control cabinets tuned to the respective network connection, including simple basic example program for the parameterization.
The WAGO Solution at a Glance:
Simply select the grid territory, set the parameters and put the system into operation – the ready-made WAGOAppRTU_Slaves communication libraries make the telecontrol connection of the customer’s transfer station significantly simpler.
