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. As the specialist for the regulation of load flow and power quality, we are continually developing our solution portfolio in dialog with grid operators and transformer manufacturers throughout the world. MR control systems already allow transformers to be dynamically overloaded based on demand (dynamic transformer rating), which helps to avoid grid bottlenecks and expensive re-dispatch measures. In order to drive forward grid expansion for the energy transition, we are working on innovative high voltage transmission line towers made of high-performance composite plastics. And our subsidiary HIGHVOLT offers a test procedure that reliably detects faults in high-voltage cables when connecting offshore wind farms, to name but one example.Watch introduction video
Sahara electricity - safe for the island
The world's longest submarine cables will soon supply solar power from Morocco to the UK, and electricity will be able to flow reliably through these mammoth cables thanks to testing technology from HIGHVOLT.
Are wind farms the new power plants?
Wind farms could play a key role in a successful and secure energy transition by supplying renewable energy and, as alternative power plants, simultaneously keeping grids stable.
Direct current at all grid levels
On the one hand, there are more and more renewable producers that generate direct current. On the other hand, there is a growing number of consumers such as electric cars that need it. Are DC grids therefore the future?
The MSCDN plant – the new "power plant generator" for stable grids
The conversion of energy systems to a sustainable power supply requires the use of a wide range of technologies to ensure the stable and secure operation of grids in the future as well. MSCDN plants are a practical solution.
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.
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.
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).
