Micro-gridsThe need for greener electricity grids that are also more reliable and resilient has led many people to opt for microgrids. Microgrids that connect distributed energy generation sources with distributed energy consumers are impacting the predictability of power fed to the distribution grid. Control and protection are the main challenges being faced.
We help overcome your challenges
R&S manufactures special cast resin, power and distribution transformers for hydro power plants, photovoltaic plants and wind farms, supporting both the increasing demand for and the necessity of sustainable energy generation. The transformers are designed to compensate for fluctuating energy supply and help significantly with energy storage.
With conventional and amorphous cores, our high-efficiency transformers are a key element when it comes to reducing green energy losses and supporting power transport from generation to utilisation without impacting grid stability.
While we cannot help grid operators to control the weather, we can provide them with different accessories such as control devices to help minimise variable renewable energy curtailment.
