ABB collaborates in smart-grid automation solution in Germany

ABB has implemented an advanced load-grid automation solution developed as part of the EU-funded Grid4EU project, the aim of which is to support the EU’s 2020 climate and energy targets while laying down the foundations for the development of future electricity grids. In its first demonstration, the Demo 1 pilot project conducted in Reken, Germany, ABB integrated the technology into the existing local network where it monitors the load conditions in the grid and automatically adapts to changes in demand. It enables existing open ring lines to be switched, establishing direct connection between consumers and generators. This in turn enables local generators to supply power to local consumers, reducing line losses and enhancing the efficiency of the grid. The technology also uses advanced control functions to enhance the reliability of the network and support the detection o...
