Transformers play a crucial role to achieve a successful energy transition. The energy landscape is changing rapidly, and grid operators need to respond flexibly to power fluctuations due to renewable power generation. We started early to develop technologies that are actively shaping the path to a climate-friendly future. Discover our eco-friendly transformers, our grid stabilizing equipment, as well as our innovative ester solutions, our Pretact resiliency concept and our Sensformer technology.
Transformers are a vital and decisive part of power grids – no matter if conventional or digital. Sensformer® enables you to digitize this important keystone of your grid. Now your transformers are connective!
A Sensformer® contains the necessary sensors for entering the most important operating parameters – such as oil-level, temperature, LV winding current and GPS-positioning. To step into the world of digitalized transformers, you simply add a GSM-card. Data submission can be done via GSM as well as Ethernet-connection without the need of a secondary IT infrastructure.
A Sensformer® Advanced is equipped with a digital twin, which simulates the behavior of the physical asset in real time and thus creates a completely new type of experience and value-add applications: An active overload manager allows Sensformer® Advanced operators to manage temporary overloads without compromising on lifetime. With a full temperature view, the current heat status can always be checked, a life consumption view gives indications on the residual lifetime of the asset. Furthermore, based on the digital twin, for highly developed applications, additional advanced sensors can be used on the asset, e.g. bushing, partial discharge or DGA sensors.
