EFFICIENT GRID CONNECTION AND STABLE VOLTAGE
The increasing use of wind, sun, water, biogas, geothermal and other renewable energy sources is resulting in fluctuating amounts of energy being generated at all levels of the power grid. Statutory feed-in priorities, which vary depending on country, generally also apply to these types of energy. The altered grid use results in voltage peaks and grid operators must take appropriate measures to maintain the voltage range, particularly in the distribution network. On the other hand, the operators of generation plants are required to meet corresponding directives concerning voltage quality when they feed energy into the power grid. System components that are optimally matched to each other guarantee reliable feed-in at all times and thus also ensure maximally efficient operation.
INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS MAXIMIZE THE CONTRIBUTION OF RENEWABLE ENERGIES
Products from Reinhausen have been regulating and switching grid voltage for many decades which makes us well equipped to meet the challenges arising from the growth of renewable energies.
Our on-load tap-changers reliably operate in broad voltage ranges and provide up to 300,000 tap changes without maintenance. In distribution networks, voltage regulation distribution transformers can compensate for voltage fluctuations and therefore help prevent expensive grid expansions.
The ECOTAP VPD enables all manufacturers of distribution transformers around the globe to add voltage regulation transformers to their product range. Power quality products reliably compensate for reactive power and perfectly minimize harmonic currents which arise from rectifier transformers.
With POWER COMPOSITES® we offer innovative hollow insulators and insulating shafts made of glass-fiber-reinforced composite materials for generator couplings.
Thanks to reliable measuring technology and monitoring systems from Reinhausen, you always have an overview of the condition of your equipment and can optimally plan maintenance activities. And, of course, our global service team is always there for you.
