Distributed Generation/DER and Microgrid Monitoring & Control

The energy industry is growing and changing more than ever. As a result, utilities, OEMs and end users are demanding better “visibility” into the electrical energy flows and power quality of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and the electrical grid to assure safe and reliable operation. Monitoring & control of Balance of System (BOS) equipment and point of common coupling (PCC) interfaces to the electrical grid are increasingly necessary for optimal performance of renewable energy generation, battery energy storage and/or microgrid systems.

Why Use WAGO?

  • Highly scalable, rugged design can withstand the harshest environments with over 500+ I/O modules and fiber/copper connections.
  • Bridge multiple protocols with just one device: e.g., Modbus TCP/RTU/Sunspec, DNP3, CANbus, IEC61850, and more. Connect to two cloud connections (on-premise or remote).
  • Easily program using the programming language of you choice for example, IEC61131-3 and/or open-source codes.

Smart Grid Monitoring and Control

The modern electrical grid is undergoing an unprecedented transformation due to exciting new innovations in renewable energy generation, electrification of transportation – with its associated high charging loads, and 2-way charging infrastructure improvements. More than ever, utilities and electrical distribution system operators need increasing amounts information to better ensure power quality, safety and reliability. To this end, better monitoring and control of low voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) electrical power in front of and behind the electrical meter is necessary.

Why Use WAGO?

  • Cost-effective, rugged and reliable controllers with 500+ I/O modules for monitoring and/or control.
  • WAGO has extensive experience with and references for utilities, OEMs, and C&I end users.
  • Support for popular protocols such as DNP3, IEC61859, Modbus and more for efficient communication with remote control centers and field devices.

Customer Applications

The Digital Energy Transition with High-Tech Controllers

The expansion of renewable energies can only succeed if the fluctuating supplies from solar and wind arrays are compensated by flexible electrical consumers and batteries. Digital technology can help to solve this problem: Intelligent systems convert the analog electrical network into a communicative smart grid and pave the way for linking virtual power plants, generators and consumers.

The Tailored Large Storage Battery

With a scalable hybrid energy storage system of lead acid and lithium ion batteries, the battery expert HOPPECKE from Brilon is allowing new flexibility in power supply.

Intelligent Control of a Battery Swarm

The “SchwarmSpeicher Allgäu” swarm battery system stabilizes the low voltage network in and around the Bavarian town of Kempten. For monitoring and controlling the distributed storage systems, egrid, the specialist for intelligent distribution grids, relies on WAGO controllers, due to flexibility, reliability and service quality.

Storage Systems Balance Out Solar Power

As part of the Smart Grid Solar project, the Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research is testing how storage devices can help equip local networks for the increased supply of solar electricity. Controllers from WAGO ensure secure communication between individual systems and the control center.

The Multilingual Transformer Station

The security of the power supply can be easily endangered – for example, when an overly enthusiastic backhoe operator damages electrical lines during an excavation.

Wiring Inverters - Safely, Quickly and Easily With A Lever

The roofs of many homes are already adorned with photovoltaic systems. But to ensure that the electricity generated from solar power also finds its way to your sockets, you need an inverter. To make the connection as safe, quick, and easy as possible for the installer, Fronius uses the lever connection technology from WAGO for its GEN24 Plus inverter generation – currently making it one of a kind on the solar inverter market.
