Power Transmission and Distribution

Planning and optimization of facilities for power transmission and distribution belong to our core activities. In this connection, we also develop tailored all-inclusive solutions for AC and DC power transmission on all voltage levels. Relevant technologies are overhead lines, cables and gas-insulated transmission lines (GIL) as well as transformer substations, open-air switchgear and gas-insulated switchgear (GIS).

In addition to electrotechnical and network studies, we assist our clients in grid expansion planning and optimization of grid operations. We prepare calculations for network protection concepts. Subsequent to power failure analyses, we work out graded packages of countermeasures.

When tying HVDC transmission lines into existing three-phase networks, grid operators profit from our experience in creating and applying appropriate models. On an international level, Fichtner is a qualified and reliable partner for challenging HVDC projects and we have, for example, assisted clients in deploying VSC technology.

In the context of power supply, alongside tasks for transmission grids we also work out solutions for site power systems, process I&C specifically for power plants, and power system management.
