Power Systems

Overview

Generation

From turbine power generators to monitoring and control systems for power generation plants, our range of products and systems for generating electricity are contributing to higher energy efficiency and lower environmental impact.

Transmission

As the world looks to renewable energy and lower environmental impact, energy systems must deliver a high-quality, stable power supply. Our products and systems for power transmission, such as switchgears and transformers, provide the required efficiency and quality.

Distribution

Optimizing energy through the smart grid. Our array of power distribution products and systems help ensure that electricity gets where it needs to go, stably and reliably. We contribute to advanced power networks to efficiently support the power industry, and combine smart meters and other commercial products with ICT to enable a smarter use of electricity.
