IMPULSES for a sustainable power supply

Welcome to IMPULSES. Our specialist portal is where your requirements and applications come to the fore. It is where we show you the many ways in which we are helping to transform energy systems worldwide. And reveal the new ideas and pioneering technologies that are coming into play. Yet our ambition is always the same – to ensure that the adaptation of existing grids is technologically successful while remaining affordable. As the specialist for the regulation of load flow and power quality, we are continually developing our solution portfolio in dialog with you – the grid operators and transformer manufacturers.

We are providing IMPULSES for a sustainable energy future. Each time you visit the portal, you will find new and fascinating examples of how we are doing this.

So come and join us every now and then and let yourself be inspired!

Affordable energy transition and CO2 reduction

The clock is ticking. Stopping climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing society. The key to success here is the move to renewable energy sources. And this will require a comprehensive redesign of the existing grid infrastructure. Through new ideas and technical solutions, we are supporting the shift toward sustainable energy systems – both in the transmission and in the distribution grids.

Climate change, energy revolution and the future of power grids?

The energy revolution is the only thing that can put the brake on climate change. This means that, by 2040, grids will have to transport up to 50 percent more power.

Test systems for the energy revolution

Test systems from HIGHVOLT help make sustainable electricity generation possible. This overview shows how!

A new design for utility poles

The energy revolution will only work with a massive expansion of the power grids. But new lines are often met with resistance. A design study funded by the European Union seeks to change that.

Storage at all network levels

Climate change, climate crisis, climate collapse - these are the terms used to describe what is probably the greatest challenge of our time. The only solution is to phase out conventional energy sources. But what does this mean for the power grids of the future? The future lies in storage systems for all grid levels.

Five theses on the future of power grids

Futurologist Lars Thomsen shows why the energy industry should act quickly and what it stands to gain.

Retrofit: Breathing new life into old transformers thanks to new tap changers

Reinhausen modernizes old transformers with new tap changers, thus extending their service life. This is the case for grid operator Elia in Belgium.

Clever fleet management for transformers

Using the FLEETSCAN 2D analysis system, asset and service managers always have an overview of the condition of their transformers, making it easier to plan maintenance, updates and investments.

Retrofit: Bushing monitoring for phase shifters

Bushings are one of the most important parts of the transformer. That is why Slovenian grid operator ELES relies on the MSENSE® BM monitoring system to ensure the power supply beyond its borders.

Optimizing the service life of equipment

How can our energy grids be adapted to the needs of the energy transition? One key aspect is the automation and digitalization of equipment which allows the existing infrastructure to be loaded even further and, at the same time, to be operated for longer.

The most powerful transformers in the world for a 1,100 kV HVDC line in China

Siemens supplied 28 transformers for the converter station of a high-voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) project in China. And they included tap changers and composite hollow insulators from Reinhausen.

"We are in a growth market with the VRDT"

Since 2012, Saxon-Bavarian Starkstrom-Gerätebau GmbH (SBG) has been delivering series-production VRDTs (regulated local grid transformers). Since then, they have become established as standard operating equipment for energy providers.

Oversized de-energized tap-changers

If a de-energized tap-changer has to maintain a huge test voltage of 1,000 kV and switch 112 kV in a single step, you need real experts. That is why Canadian transformer manufacturer PTI came to Reinhausen.

"Transitioning to a solution provider presents a major opportunity for transformer manufacturers – and digitalization can help!"

Between dynamic grids, global markets and an almost unthinkable number of digitalization solutions, complexity in the transformer industry is increasing. Jürgen Ach, Director of Automation at Reinhausen, sees major opportunities for manufacturers, however.

Customer variance and globalization in transformer production

The complexity involved in producing transformers has increased considerably in recent years. A wide variety of systems, manufacturers, technologies, and extension options requires new expertise to be acquired and is gradually changing the process landscape. We are on hand to advise you.

Putting an End to Harmonics in Industries

Harmonics can bring entire industrial operations to a halt. With the modular system "Total Harmonic Solution", Reinhausen Power Quality provides a useful tool to combat these unwanted grid disturbances.

Asian industry uses voltage regulation distribution transformers in the fight against fluctuating grids

Voltage fluctuations are problems for industrial companies in all of Southeast Asia. Regulated distribution transformers protect production. The ECOTAP® VPD® takes on the task of regulation.

Electronics in shipping: Cleaner grids

Technology from Reinhausen helps ship grids remain stable, both on the high seas and at ports with an environmentally friendly shore power supply.

Weatherproof cable testing for offshore wind parks

IEC standard 63026 dictates the resonance method for testing cables in offshore wind parks. Reinhausen subsidiary HIGHVOLT has designed a weatherproof testing system.

Clean power grid with high-frequency filters

Wind turbines supply environmentally friendly energy. But it can place a strain on electricity grids. At a wind farm in Germany's Rhineland-Palatinate region, a high-frequency filter system from MR keeps the grid in perfect working order.

VRDTs for Australia's distribution grids

In Australia, the growing amount of solar power leads to more and more frequent voltage fluctuations. Grid operator Western Power therefore relies on regulated local grid transformers (VRDTs).

Standard-compliant grid integration of wind and solar power

New ideas and pioneering technologies are the key to ensuring that the adaptation of existing grids to changed requirements is technologically successful and remains affordable. It is for this precise reason that we are continually developing our solution portfolio.

"Digitalization of the power grids will only work with comprehensive security measures"

In this interview, Dr. Stephan Beirer of the information security consulting firm GAI NetConsult explains why cybersecurity must be considered in all aspects of the power grid.

Why are you digitizing your transformers? Three questions for Rúnar Svavar Svavarsson.

Rúnar Svavar Svavarsson of Icelandic grid operator Veitur wants to lower costs and increase the reliability of the power grid. The ETOS® automation solution helps him do it.
