Smart Grid Symposium 2018

To ensure it can cope with the expansion of renewable energies and the increasing number of electric vehicles, the power grid must be modernized.

Using best practice examples, experts explain how bottlenecks in the low-voltage network can be visualized on the basis of online measurements and adjusted automatically. Another focus of the event is on flexibilization technologies, such as intelligent local network stations(iLNS) and energy storage systems.

New digital technologies such as cloud applications will also be highlighted at the symposium. Modern controllers can send data from the field level to the cloud where the information can be aggregated and used for analysis.

This and other questions will be discussed by experts from the energy industry, academia and general industry at the 5th Smart Grid Symposium by WAGO.

  • September 25-26, 2018
  • at the kING Conference Center in Ingelheim am Rhein

WAGO in the Smart Grid

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.

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.
