Dear readers,

I wouldn’t have imagined that one day the active filters that we provide as part of our Power Quality business area would be the reason that the German coastguard is able to operate its ships reliably. This makes the article on that subject in this new edition of ONLOAD all the more exciting.

Another feature that I find fascinating is our interview on electromobility with the major German energy provider E.ON. Based on a recent study, E.ON’s experts can say with a high degree of certainty that their distribution networks are well equipped to meet the demands of electromobility, thanks in part to the use of regulated transformers. Smart equipment makes the networks suitable for widespread electric car charging.

On the subject of network operation, we are currently working on a new innovation in collaboration with PSI Software AG. From 2020, it will be possible to overload transformer fleets in a targeted manner. By combining control system software from PSI with our own ETOS® system for data collection, we can achieve higher network utilization while protecting the transformer.

I wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year.

Thanks for reading!
