Digitalization and the resilience of critical grid infrastructure
We are already digitalizing critical grid equipment with the help of ETOS®, our open operating system for power transformers. The combination of VACUTAP® tap changers, MSENSE® sensors, communication-capable edge computing, and intelligent analytics is creating the prerequisite for dynamically optimized transformer operations management – with lower acquisition and operating costs, reduced downtimes and a high resilience to changing requirements. In addition, we are supporting grid operators in recording the condition of their transformer fleet and in realizing optimized maintenance and replacement concepts. But that is not all: We are available as the expert service provider for the entire life cycle of the transformer, both remotely and on site – from installation to commissioning, through maintenance work and retrofitting all the way to decommissioning.
"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.
