The demands placed on state-of-the-art wind farms to respond to the power grid as if a single conventional power station requires use of a central wind-farm controller and high-speed communications. For that, Bachmann electronic presents bluecom – a communication solution developed for smart grids.
‘bluecom’ is based on conventional Ethernet technology and provides affordable and easy-to-implement communications for fast and reliable information exchange in real time. The transmission protocol was optimized with regard to the particular requirements to future-proof energy systems. The prime objective of these measures is to maintain grid stability by enabling energy parks and virtual power stations consisting of a large number of decentralized power generation plants to respond quickly.
The communication protocol ‘bluecom’ provides an important foundation for the transition to a smart grid and use of regenerative energies for electricity generation.
