What if the energy transition gets under way without new power lines? We are developing the decentralised network of the future.
Where others cultivate cereals, the proportion of renewable energies is now increasing: We are managing the construction of one of Europe’s biggest photovoltaic systems– capacity: 50 megawatts. We are developing new control software that feeds electricity generated directly on the site into transportable primary storage units. A modern decentralised power networks netcode controls the system storage, network feed-in and even production times – decentrally, flexibly and effectively. Renewable energy doesn`t necessarily need more masts. It needs a more intelligent power network.
New energies are posing us developers new questions: When does an offshore wind farm work efficiently? How can it be analysed and maintained with minimal cost and effort? Anyone building in the windiest parts of the world must be prepared for harsh weather and thus for entirely new challenges: Is the platform hurricane-proof? How many people can it accommodate? Can it be evacuated in an emergency? Our engineering, IT and safety expertise is ruggedising the working environment of the future against reality.
Wind power is the energy of the future – but not universally welcome. Of course: rotors with a diameter of more than 150 metres cannot operate without making a noise. But they can be made quieter. And that is what we are working towards, e.g. by developing new control software for existing turbines that measures vibration and avoids certain resonance effects by controlling the speed of rotation. Other developments are new surfaces and profile edges that modify wind flow, or the reactive use of counter-noise. Reducing a roar to a whisper.
With thousands of power generators in tomorrow’s decentralised power network, who ensures that the lights never go out? The guidelines are clear: all IT processes comply with the new ISO 27001 standard. That means that relevant information remains secure and cannot be falsified, and plants can only be controlled by authorised individuals. We are assisting a major network operator with standardised certification, employee training, system testing and optimisation.
