Distribution grid automation in focus: 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 and thus the need of education and training in this field. Digital power grids, smart grids and fault detection are just some of the keywords. Training and education for the installation, commissioning and parameterization of the secondary technology of the subsequent operation has proven to be extremely important.
The transformer station as a digital hub
Until a few years ago, a transformer station typically consisted of the transformer plus locally operable medium-voltage switchgear and LV distribution. With increased requirements for transparency and fail-safety, a digital transformer station in the smart grid consists of diverse sensor technology and digital communication. These are all elements of distribution grid automation.
Education and training on the operation of the digital transformer station provides a reduction in downtime in the event of a fault.
Education and training: short-circuit detection and ground fault detection, star point grounding
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? Training with focus on distribution grid automation.
Distribution grid automation, smart grid and fault detection: independent education and training
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 crew on how to set up and operate the new measuring and recording technology in the transformer stations?
Then contact me
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.
