6. Regulated Distribution Transformer FITformer REG
The regulated distribution transformer FITformer REG from Siemens can change its transformation ratio under load. In this way, it guarantees distributed infeed from small generating plants and helps energy suppliers to stay within the permissible voltage band, without violating the EN 50160 standard. This is achieved by the transformer’s three low-voltage taps, which are routed inside the hermetically sealed corrugated tank to the control unit directly on the transformer.
A specially developed bushing provides a space-saving and reliable transition from the transformer to the control unit. All the usual connections as well as the high-voltage tap area for load- free changing of the transformation ratio remain unchanged.
The operating properties and dimensions of the distribution transformer remain more or less unchanged. Thanks to its space-saving design, the FITformer REG can be used in all normal compact stations.
7. Spectrum Power: Secure integration of distributed and renewable energy resources
Today’s grids are characterized by fundamental load flow changes due to increased distributed generation (e.g. wind, PV), significant changes in observability due to the advent of smart meters, as well as increasing pressure for higher reliability of supply despite higher network volatility.
The Spectrum Power scores first-class both in SCADA, DMS as well as in Outage Management. Its user interface and data model connects all its applications and fully supports geospatial views and processes. Spectrum Power solutions enable management processes to ensure system reliability, voltage management, demand-side management, outage management and work management.

11. Demand Response Management System and Virtual Power Plant
Demand response refers to all functions and processes applied to influence the behavior of energy consumption. This can range from simple signaling, e-mail, SMS, or a phone call to a person who switches a load on or off, to fully integrated load management, where many consumption devices are dynamically controlled according to availability or to the price of energy.
Since the demand for electrical energy in many cases is closely connected to the demand for alternative forms of energy, heating and cooling energy, or mechanical energy, demand response solutions must each far beyond the electrical grid itself. In particular, optimization must include all energy forms which are interconnected.
Virtual power plants are the basis for the change in the energy supply. In context of the virtual power plant, Siemens offers i.a. different solutions for the integration of decentralized supply networks. DEMS- Decentralized Energy Management System is the “brain” of decentralized power parks. With DEMS new marketing possibilities are opened up for decentralized power generators.
