Visitors to HANNOVER MESSE 2016 can find out about the specific advantages of Knorr-Bremse Powertech’s new converters for energy generation, energy storage and grid compensation at the Berlin Brandenburg – Energy pavilion. In the wake of the energy revolution, renewables have become a crucial source of power in the energy mix. However, the increase in localized power generators is changing the very structure of the power grid. Through its new converters, Knorr-Bremse Powertech is looking to help establish a holistic concept for the future of energy supplies.
As a link between energy sources, consumers and storage applications, these devices optimize individual energy sources such as wind farms and – with the aid of storage systems – support the grid through the use of peak load management and power reserves. Thanks to state-of-the-art power electronics and a modular design, the Powertech converters can be easily adapted to specific requirements. Active harmonic compensation helps to stabilize and support the grid, while losses in transmission and distribution networks and industrial plants are also reduced and energy costs cut due to the contractually agreed performance factor.
