Power Generation

Tap into the potential of wind, hydro and solar power generation and smart grid for your business requirements and move away from limited unreliable electricity. With Schneider Electric India’s power generation solutions, you can now enjoy advanced benefits like improved monitoring, operational efficiency with the help of the latest technology like IEC 61850. Using this newest solution, we have moved away from the traditional methods and transformed the digitisation, designing, configuration, and maintenance of the power grid. Not only that, but you can also take advantage of higher cybersecurity that braces security-by-design practices.

The current power scenario is steered by digitisation innovations, lower carbon consumption and decentralisation of energy production. As electricity reaches every nook and corner of the world, we need to shift towards sustainable and sensible production methods. With EcoStruxure, you have the ideal solution for power generation and smart grid maintenance. It helps you opt for greener steps towards electricity generation, which helps reach far and wide efficiently and boosts profits and reduces wastage. What does power generation do?
The process of creating electric power from primary energy sources is known as power generation. It is the phase before delivery to end consumers or storage for utilities in the electric power sector.

How many types of power generations are there?
There are 3 major types of power generations: Basic Principle of power generation?
Electromagnetic induction is the basis for how electric generators operate. A revolving coil inside a magnetic field produces electricity.

Why is Power Generation required?
Industrial buildings known as power plants produce electricity using major energy sources including coal, natural gas, nuclear, solar, or wind power. Generators are typically used in power plants to transform mechanical energy into electrical energy. Solar power plants are an exception, as they produce electricity without the usage of a turbine by using photovoltaic cells. Utilizing renewable energy resources more effectively can help countries achieve sustainable development, improve socioeconomic conditions, and attain clean food and energy security. In the current energy environment, the majority of capacity additions in power generation using renewable energy are gaining momentum. The deployment of several plants across the nation and a dramatic increase in renewable energy technologies for power generation have occurred in recent years.

Why choose Power Generation Solutions from Schneider Electric?
By combining a dependable, high-performance, emissions-compliant diesel generator with an automatic transfer switch (ATS), which seamlessly switches the load from mains utility power to generator power in the event of a protracted power outage, the standby power generation product package prolongs runtimes and improves data center availability. Using measurements of fuel level and load, a real-time runtime calculator gives up-to-date runtime estimates, and predictive failure analysis notifies users when preventative maintenance is necessary. You can keep an eye on and control the system's functionality even while the components are off, unlike normal extended runtime options. The ATS also allows for the installation of contact sensors, such as door contact switches and leak detectors, to further customize alarm messages and events.
