Basic information

The energy generated in a grid must always be equal to the energy consumed. The ancillary services are tasked with ensuring this.


Virtual power plants, active distribution grids, smart meters and adaptive protection systems – here you can find information about the most important aspects of smart grids.


What do direct and alternating current mean? How do they differ and what are the advantages and disadvantages?


How is our power grid structured? What sort of networks are there? What do security and quality of supply mean?
