Beyond supply and demand: The dynamic power grid

Technology for an increasingly complex power landscape in the Middle East   Power generation was once a linear equation: power stations produced electricity and communities used it. And power suppliers handled fluctuations in demand by firing up gas turbines or using pumped-storage hydroelectric plants. If customers required more power, producers just generated more. But the power grid is a lot more complicated these days now that renewable energy is becoming a viable alternative. Networks are ...

Transformer Spare Parts: Be Prepared for Grid Reliability

Grid reliability is now a top priority, and challenge, for utilities — thanks, in part, to vast increases in the amount of renewables and other distributed resources on the grid. Transformer maintenance is an important part of achieving reliability, since transformers are working harder than ever. Downtime isn’t just costly; it can stress and compromise other parts of your grid. Siemens Customer Services (Transformer Lifecycle Management (TLM)) offers easy, fast access to the right spare parts f ...
