    MR presentation: The influence of digitalization on sustainability – How OEMs and operators can achieve their goals

    MR illustration 850 x 400 px

    Increasing prices for raw materials and for energy due to the political and environmental circumstances put this topic in the center of attention more than ever before. Accordingly, transformer manufacturers as well as system grid operators are keen on implementing their goals for being sustainable as fast and as significantly as possible.

    While the transformer manufacturers are continuously developing new compact design, increase the efficiency and ensure a reliable operational safety and the grid operators expect less noise and losses, an extended lifetime and optimized thermal design with a green CO2 footprint.

    Intelligent solutions for digitalization and automation could enhance the opportunities within the energy sector to achieve the required results. A CPU combined with an exclusive algorithm could help to operate the grid in a smarter way and support transformer manufacturers to optimize individual transformer design. Improving possibilities of the operator’s maintenance strategy might extend the lifetime of power transformers.

    It is not only the transformer manufacturer or the system grid operator who have an influence to the green footprint, there are much more players in this game.
