Digital Substations

In several areas around the world there is an aging infrastructure. We see an increasing demand or refurbishment of substations. Going from analogue to digital technologies brings unseen opportunities for modern utilities. Built on the international standard IEC 61850 digital substations are bridging the gap between the equipment of the process bus level and the station level.
Listen to Lars Frisk, Global Lead Product Manager - Bay level products at Grid Automation Products talking about the possibilities with ABB Ability, empowering the digital substation.

Power Quality

What is good power quality when the base demands of availability and reliability are already met?
The technology development such as renewable energy sources connected to the grid and more complex grid interconnections provides great benefits for the environment and the power capacity. However, this development also creates new challenges for us to keep and improve the power quality.
Take the opportunity to listen to Håkan Rörvall, Principal Engineer harmonic filters and applications at ABB High Voltage Products and Shane Hutchinson, System Studies Manager at FACTS when they discuss the complexibility of power quality and how to tackle todays and future challenges.

Transformer losses

What are the losses worth? Nothing you might say.
Well, in the world of transformers, the losses are way too high to ignore. Both when it comes to costs for the operators and consumers as well as the environmental impact.
Take the opportunity to listen to Tomas Olsson, senior expert at Power Transformers. He will explain the basic function of transformers, how losses occur and what we can do to reduce them.
