Driving the digitalization of safe energy production
Power generation companies are constantly trying to reduce the overall cost of production. Utilities are looking for smarter substation automation and more efficient load balancing throughout the energy grid. A common factor across these examples is the importance of safety, both from a process and system point of view. TTTech has addressed these concerns with its High-Availability DCS platform that is deployed in Vestas wind turbines. Functional integration of control, protection and safety results in a tremendous reduction in overall system complexity. Safety and high-availability are baked in to every aspect of system design offering increased availability whilst ensuring safe operation.
The Flexibilis product range also provides high-availability solutions for energy production. Flexibilis switch IP and network interfaces cards are based on HSR and PRP technologies to enable the development of redundant switch devices for sub-station and smart grid communication networks.
