GMP232 grid measurement module in operation at the Fraunhofer IWES

The energy transition has put the spotlight on renewable energies as key sources of energy supply. In this process, the redesign of the power supply grid is of critical importance: After all, a wide range of different energy producers have to be integrated. The fact that the energy from the sun, wind and other sources cannot be supplied at a constant rate poses a major challenge. The PNI testing laboratory for grid integration at the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES) in Kassel, Germany, provides the facilities for testing the necessary innovations on grid components and for testing grid operation in practice. It is here that Bachmann's GMP232 grid measurement module is making an important contribution.
