Electricity distribution networks have changed drastically in recent years due to the integration of renewable energies: The requirements for fail-safety, monitoring and control of the grids have increased. Digital transformer station, smart grid and fault detection are keywords here.
Network analysis distribution network - digital transformer station
“Where do I currently stand with the expansion of my my digital transformer stations?”
“What expansion and retrofit options do I have?”
“Which measures are economically sensible?”
If you have already asked yourself these or similar questions and want to get an assessment of your current situation as well as an independent presentation of possible expansion stages, my network analysis distribution network is the right thing for you:
The as-is analysis includes among others:
– On-site inspection of exemplary transformer stations of your distribution network
– Recording of the technology used to date in the area of measured value and fault recording, system control and transmission technology
– Analysis of the network plan and other documents
– Evaluation of error statistics and the like
– Recording the current challenges of planning and operation
Based on this, I create possible
– Reduction of downtimes through suitable fault detection, especially with regard to the star point grounding used
– Which measured values make sense and how are they optimally recorded, stored and transmitted?
– How are the measured values evaluated?
– Does remote plant control make sense?
– Possible expansion stages for a digital transformer station, their benefits and economic efficiency specifically for your distribution network

Digital power grids and smart grids
Electricity distribution networks have changed drastically in recent years due to the integration of renewable energies: The requirements for fail-safety, monitoring and control of the grids have increased. Digital power grids, smart grids and fault detection are just some of the keywords.
A smart grid is a modern electrical power system based on intelligence and automation. It uses digital technologies to optimize power production, transmission and distribution, improve grid performance and increase energy efficiency. Smart grids enable bidirectional power transmission, where energy can also be fed into the grid from end users, e.g., through rooftop photovoltaic systems.
How is a transformer station constructed?
A digital transformer station is a modern version of a conventional transformer station that uses digital technologies and intelligent systems to improve the monitoring, control and optimization of power distribution. Digital technology enables full monitoring and control of the transformer station in real time, including monitoring of current flows, voltages, amperages and other network parameters.
A digital transformer station also uses automation technologies to automatically perform certain functions such as switchgear switching, overload and fault monitoring, power quality monitoring, and voltage regulation. This helps to improve the reliability and efficiency of the power supply system and to detect and correct faults more quickly.
A digital transformer station is an important component of a smart grid, helping to build a sustainable and efficient energy system that can cope with increasing energy demand and society’s changing needs.
Fault detection and ground fault detection, fast fault declaration
In the event of a fault, reliable short circuit detection and ground fault detection is critical. But which method should be used specifically for ground fault direction detection as a function of star point grounding? Which fault detection is suitable for your network? I advise you independently and with technical depth.
Digital power grids, smart grid and fault detection: independent consulting, installations and commissioning
As an electricity grid operator, do you need a vendor-independent view of your grids and a strategy for becoming a smart grid?
Do you want to optimize your SAIDI by reducing downtime and need assistance in selecting the appropriate short-circuit detection and ground-fault detection methods?
Do you need instruction for your team in setting up and operating the new measuring and recording technology in the transformer stations or a complete service for installation and commissioning?
Remote transmission and telecontrol
The measurement data is recorded on site, the errors are reliably determined, and now? How does this information get to the places that need it without delay, safely and reliably?
I will advise you on the selection of suitable remote transmission technology and communication protocols.
