Siemens Energy extends its digital power transmission portfolio

Infographic Siemens Energy Edge ProductsThe energy transition is challenging the power grids: Wind and sun feed in renewable energy in a highly fluctuating manner, and the complexity and connectivity of our energy infrastructure continues to grow

At the same time, the importance of cybersecurity is increasing, because more and more components are digitally networked and thus potentially vulnerable.

This poses major challenges for grid operators. For the energy transition, the digitisation of transmission infrastructure is playing a decisive role. Siemens Energy is extending its switchgear and transformer portfolio to include new digital products such as the world's first high-voltage system with integrated edge computing technology.

With these innovative products, grid operators will be able to react faster to changes in the system, make the right decisions, and increase the transparency, productivity, and reliability of their plants. The seamless integration of the systems into the existing customer network is local, secure and simple. This also ensures a highly cyber-secure system.

“For a successful energy transition, we need future-proof power grids,” said Christian Bruch, CEO of Siemens Energy. “To achieve this, we need to take full advantage of the opportunities opened up by digitalisation. With our pioneering digital power transmission portfolio, we offer our customers a secure, simple and fast way to convert data into relevant information and thus ensure efficient power transmission.”

In devices with edge computing technology, data processing is decentralised at the product level and without the need for previous data transfer to the cloud. The new edge transmission products from Siemens Energy offer the possibility of connecting devices directly within the substation - without having to compromise the advantages of cloud solutions such as app-based data analysis or central device and application management.
