E-Mobility & Renewables
The use of renewable energies in the mix of electricity is one of the central challenges for energy providers. While renewable sources provide better ecological balance, the decentralised and irregular power supply jeopardises network stability.
Ideal integration of renewable energies requires real-time control over these generators. This ensures that the energy from sources such as wind power and photovoltaic systems can be optimally used by consumers. Monitoring in real time enables immediate responses to acute events in the network and regulation of the network load.
By using the existing power line, G3-PLC makes it possible to efficiently set up a comprehensive monitoring system in the smart grid. In order to accomplish this, the current production and status data of the renewable energy plants are sent to the next transformer station via the mains supply using a Powerline modem. This makes it possible to monitor the production output of the renewable energy plants in real time and to regulate it as needed.
The smart energy network relies on comprehensive communication to integrate the charging stations in the best possible way. The IP-based data connection to the smart grid ensures continuous measurement and control. This also enables load compensation by interconnecting charging stations. Furthermore, in future the vehicles connected to the smart grid are expected to serve as batteries for storing extra energy as needed.
Data communication in real time is required to make the charging station units fit for the smart grid. For this purpose, G3-PLC technology provides an efficient communication solution that can be easily integrated into charging stations even after they are built. Powerline communication connects the charging stations to each other and enables an efficient connection to the grid control centre.
