At the wind industry’s largest trade fair, Schneider Electric will present a comprehensive portfolio of digital solutions for safe and efficient wind farm operation. In addition to specialized hardware, software solutions from partners AVEVA and ETAP will also be on display.

In order to meet climate targets and successfully switch to renewable energies by 2050, the development of renewable energy sources must be significantly advanced. This calls for innovative concepts that bring renewable energy technology faster to markets, increase plant efficiency and cost-effectiveness. As one of the leading providers of digital energy management solutions, Schneider Electric and its partners ETAP and AVEVA will present their comprehensive portfolio of solutions for wind farms at WindEnergy Hamburg 2022 in Hamburg, Germany from September 27-30 (Hall B6, Stand 272).

Suitable solutions for energy parks

As part of its sustainability strategy, Impact Company Schneider Electric offers solutions that cover the entire lifecycle of wind farms, with a strong focus on safety, efficiency, and maintainability. To further promote this, Schneider Electric specifically aims to reduce time to market and CapEx costs, increase the efficiency of operation and maintenance, and maximize industry revenue.

EcoStruxure Power for Wind, a comprehensive portfolio of connected products, software, and services specifically tailored to the wind industry, will be presented at WindEnergy Hamburg 2022. This includes the DVCAS medium-voltage switchgear up to 36kV, which together with control and load management solutions, supports safe and uninterrupted power distribution inside wind turbines. To reduce capital expenditure and accelerate integration into power grids, these products are preconfigured during the development phase. Protection hardware like the robust accuracy class 1 circuit breaker Masterpact MTZ and transformers, such as Trihal, complement the offer.

“Digital solutions and qualified data management provide more transparency and efficiency. As such, they play a key role in the transformation to an electrified world,” knows Andreas Toedter, Wind Segment Director at Schneider Electric. “To that end, our booth will feature demonstrations of the extensive software portfolio that comes under the IoT-enabled EcoStruxure solution architecture. Another highlight is the EcoStruxure Power Automation System (EPAS), an application for substation automation. Best suited for the wind industry, this scalable digital control system enables users to improve the planning, operation, and maintenance of electrical assets and ensure compliance with grid connection requirements.”

Planning and visibility with Schneider Electric partners ETAP and AVEVA

Partner companies ETAP and AVEVA will also be at the Schneider Electric booth with demonstrations of their software solutions. ETAP’s software tools enable digital planning and simulation of energy power plants – by means of digital twin modeling. In a grid simulation, individual elements, such as photovoltaic systems and battery storage, can be added and the effects on the grid fully simulated.

To ensure that all of an energy park’s processes are visible at all times, AVEVA offers the Unified Operations Center, a software solution that uniformly maps various workflows and assets. The visual combination of data from different locations results in a comprehensive, constantly updated information model that can be used to make quick operational decisions. The solution rapidly identifies anomalies in the data, which prevents errors, reduces downtime, and supports data-driven investment decisions.
