In the first step, grid operators can use WAGO technology to precisely identify where their infrastructure must be modernized. Our controllers can then be used later to automate processes and support load management. In this way, grid capacities can be better utilized – and can reduce the need for new lines.
Just like conventional local power stations, the intelligent distribution substation (iONS) connects the medium- and low-voltage grids. Unlike its less advanced counterparts, however, the new substation also records measurement data and allows this data to be read remotely. WAGO is ready to support an iONS with comprehensive automation technology: The PFC200 Controller on the medium-voltage side and the e!DISPLAY on the low-voltage side for visualizing the measurement and control data directly at the iONS itself, as well as complete connection technology. Advantages of WAGO's solution:
Switchgear in the distribution grid is a central component of a secure power supply. To ensure this, automation of such stations with WAGO Controllers is an excellent solution. Faults can be quickly localized by connecting the short circuit and ground-fault direction indicators and transmitting the information, while automated systems can be remotely controlled. Parts of the power grid can then be quickly restored and the damage radius is minimized. Advantages of WAGO's solution:
Substations are the interface between generation and distribution of renewable energy. In the event of failure, connected generators such as solar and wind farms, can no longer feed into the power grid. Depending on the severity and duration of the interruption, considerable loss of profit or other damage to technical systems may occur. To avoid failures and to eliminate faults in the near term, remotely monitoring and controlling substations in the event of breakdown are essential. WAGO Controllers can handle these tasks safely and reliably. Advantages of WAGO's solution:
A safe gas supply is just as important as a safe power supply. To ensure a safe supply, monitoring and control of gas pressure regulating systems and coupling stations are indispensable. In addition, the gas network is becoming increasingly important for integrated energy. Due to large storage capacities within a gas network, large amounts of energy can be stored. That also makes automation of feed-in stations necessary. Advantages of WAGO's solution:
Combined heating and power (CHP), along with the associated construction and expansion of remote and local heating networks, is an important component of energy transformation. During implementation, that means that heat coupling and transfer stations must be safely automated. Of course, the customer requires a secure supply in the cold season – failure here would be fatal!
