LOAD FLOW CONTROL FOR THE GRID
Phase shifter transformers help to perfectly regulate the load flow between grids or grid segments. This allows the grid operator to control the costs of power transmission and utilization of the infrastructure. As renewable energy continues to expand, the transmission grids are reaching their limits in many areas. One way of avoiding bottlenecks is to distribute load on parallel sections – and as part of the liberalized European power market, this is often taking place across borders too. Security of supply is improved and the risk of blackouts can therefore be reduced and expensive grid expansion minimized. To distribute load, the phase shifter transformer changes the phase angle between the transformer's primary and secondary side as required. The tap-changer used must have a large number of switching steps and operate at very high power levels. The more finely the active power is graduated, the more tap-change operations are possible. The tap-changer for the phase shifter transformer is frequently adapted to the specific requirements.
INNOVATIVE PORTFOLIO FOR VOLTAGE REGULATED PHASE SHIFTER TRANSFORMERS
REINHAUSEN helps you to regulate your phase shifter transformer – be it in the transmission grid or primary distribution grid. Our tap-changers offer the right solution for any requirement. The 300,000 maintenance-free tap change operations of our vacuum tap-changers are a major benefit for finely graduated phase shifters in particular. Each of these special scenarios is well catered for – from design of the overall solution, individual tap-changer configuration and customer-specific testing to on-site commissioning. Only we offer optimum regulation systems for these special applications. And it goes without saying that our service is available around the globe.
