Higher grid stability
While demands on grids keep growing, physical and financial resources do not. On the contrary, budgets have become tighter and regulations as well as questions of social acceptance limit the range of viable options. Nevertheless, power quality needs to improve and grids have to be adjusted to meet new requirements caused by increasing decentralized generation and more complex load management.
When it comes to AC transmission, the focus is on grid stability at all voltage levels. Solutions and products from Siemens make sustainable stabilization and optimization of existing infrastructures possible in the form of intelligent control technology, new FACTS solutions such as Hybrid SVC, which efficiently regulates network voltage in existing AC grids, synchronous condensers for grid stabilization and storage solutions such as SIESTORAGE and electrolysis systems that make it possible to store excess energy.
Siemens FACTS systems increase the reliability of AC grids. They improve power quality and efficiency of power transmission by actively regulating reactive power in the grid. Siemens provides a whole range of perfectly suited FACTS solutions for projects all over the world.
The natural intermittency of renewable energy entails fast changing imbalances between generation and load that have an impact on grid stability and power quality. SIESTORAGE helps regain the balance, as it can act as a power consumer as well as a generator. This helps improve grid stability and enables the integration of more renewable energy into the energy system.
The consistent use of the advantages of digitalization provides powerful tools for the efficient management of grids. With Spectrum Power™, Siemens offers an innovative platform for efficient energy management that helps ensure supply security and economic efficiency in times of more volatile generation.
The increased complexity of the generation landscape and the volatility of generation capacities can also impair the power quality consumers expect. Siemens provides grid operators with solutions for the precise measurement, acquisition, and reporting of all necessary information required to adapt to changing situations and ensure flawless power quality.
