Berlin – Stromnetz Berlin GmbH is the first German distribution grid operator to employ radio-based ripple control in its grid. Starting immediately, signals sent to decentralized power producers such as photovoltaic systems or combined heat and power (CHP) plants, as well as those to consumers, will no longer be transmitted using audio-based methods. Instead, the signals will be transmitted by radio. This new generation of radio-based ripple control technology is less expensive, tamper-proof, and fail-safe. Bosch Software Innovations supplies both the IT platform and the control logic.
