In the era of the energy transition, the significance of reliable power converters for energy production and storage is growing. Knorr-Bremse PowerTech is pleased to welcome visitors at Energy Storage Europe in Düsseldorf from March 14-16, 2017 in hall 8B to stand E30 – the group stand of the German Energy Storage Association (BVES).

Many in the energy sector agree that electricity production from renewable energy sources alone is not enough to enable a successful energy transition – efficient storage options on an industrial scale are required. With innovative power converters for energy production and storage, Knorr-Bremse PowerTech supports providers and users of storage solutions for energy system power conversion. Following the motto “Converting energy into efficiency,” Knorr-Bremse PowerTech is presenting itself as a reliable partner for converting wind and water power into energy and for battery storage, flywheel accumulators and power-to-gas solutions. Efficiency means assuring both quality and a high volume of energy during the process. And all Knorr-Bremse PowerTech converters comply with strict international directives concerning grid supplies and grid compatibility (grid codes).




Power converters for all environmental conditions



Converters for energy production and energy storage are the key to supplying energy efficiently. These products convert energy from a generator or source of renewable energy into electrical energy, storing it or feeding it into the grid with a high degree of stability. The rugged power converters from Knorr-Bremse PowerTech feature a modular, flexible design and can be built according to customer specifications. Jure Mikolcic, CEO of Knorr-Bremse PowerTech, describes why these converters withstand difficult environmental influences such as strong vibrations, harsh climate conditions and constant voltage losses better than others: “We have a high level of system expertise and lots of experience with train projects – I’m thinking of themes like the correction of voltage drops in supply lines or conversion of stored energy into thrust. This transportation know-how is the basis upon which we developed our own strengths in the field of volatile energy feeding.” PowerTech converters can manage grid disruptions and provide a constant supply of electricity under the most adverse conditions. Alongside the tens of thousands of PowerTech converters in use on rail applications throughout the world, the components provide power and auxiliary voltage to other industries including underground or surface mining, civil engineering, tunnel excavation, oil and gas extraction and chemicals.




A system partner’s foresight



What can power converters contribute to storage solutions today and where will they be needed in the future? As a system partner, Knorr-Bremse PowerTech supports its customers’ comprehensive engineering projects from the needs analysis to project supervision. Whether it’s a matter of determining the status quo, developing solutions, discussing technology or comprehensively examining energy efficiency in the context of make-or-buy decisions, Knorr-Bremse PowerTech proves to be an expert partner for industry, the energy sector, grid operators, municipalities and research facilities – ideally in the near future at Energy Storage Europe in Düsseldorf.




Knorr-Bremse PowerTech is the combination of leading power supply companies under the umbrella of the Knorr-Bremse Group. More than 500 employees at five sites on four continents work together to pioneer solutions for energy conversion. The Knorr-Bremse PowerTech portfolio includes converter products and electronic equipment for a broad spectrum of rail vehicles as well as energy production, storage, industrial applications and high end dynamic test rig applications.
