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. In such cases, a fast and, above all, targeted diagnosis of the electrical grid is essential, both along long spans and also in the distributed transformer stations. In the transformer station in the Wittmund wind farm, ENERCON relies on the WAGO PFC200 Telecontroller for signal processing and data transmission.
ENERCON, headquartered in Aurich in northern Germany, is among the international technological leaders, with more than 26,300 wind turbines. In Wittmund, ENERCON constructed the facility, and it also operates the wind farm and transformer station. “There is increasing demand for turnkey solutions for wind farms from a single source, from planning, to construction, to supplying the electrical grid,” explains Gerd-Evert Meyer, Project Manager at ENERCON. Consequently, the company is seriously considering how to link wind farms into the smart grid and, above all, how to ensure the availability and monitoring of the systems, including the transformer stations.
