Enabling the energy transition together
Energy generation, distribution, storage and consumption – the energy transition is only possible with through the interaction of all the players. This is why WAGO has been a reliable partner to the energy industry for many years – for municipal utilities, system operators, system integrators, station builders and industrial customers alike.
Technically and technologically, WAGO is represented in many different areas of the energy market with automation technology, interface electronics and connection technology. In addition, our Smart Grid symposium promotes idea sharing among colleagues – exploiting practical experience for practical applications. Furthermore, with our WAGO Solution Provider Program, we bring together project-specific clients and implementation experts.
This is how we enable the energy transition together!
Digitization of Energy Networks
Transparent, efficient grid operation
Grid-compliant integration of renewable energy from decentralized generation
Energy Storage Systems
Dynamic load management
Virtual power plants
Telecontrol technology (RTU)
The WAGO Grid Gateway Application
The controller application now offers operators of power distribution grids an economical solution to help advance the digitization of new and existing local network stations. It allows better network status assessments and efficient grid expansion – with the highest level of cybersecurity.
Telecontrol Technology Connection for Customer Transfer Stations
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 – according to the specific technical connection rules of the application. Or perhaps 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.
RTU for Telecontrol Technology
For Standards and Extremes
Robust and highly tolerant: Whether temperature fluctuations, vibrations, shocks or electromagnetic interference – retrofit telecontrol technology according to your needs and requirements. The WAGO 750 Series PLC – ready for standard applications or extreme uses.
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 the digitization of the energy sector and design of smart grids with state-of-the-art control and measurement technology, along with software solutions that allow a simple, 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 systems and controllable loads form a flexible, adjustable combination. Intelligently synchronizing them takes the pressure off 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 to help 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. For gas and heat supply as well, WAGO’s technology allows control and access to all the 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 electricity generation, taking the pressure off 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.
