Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.

Certification According to the Medium Voltage Guidelines: the Following Applies to CHPs

Pursuant to the supplement to the Medium Voltage Guideline in 2013, the certification directives for co-generation plants have been adopted and the obligation to furnish evidence of compliance with the BDEW guidelines of 2009 is now also binding for co-generation plants. As a result, certificates have to be furnished for CHPs connected to the medium voltage grid with reference to their behavior in the event of a failure.

Combined Heat and Power Units Assist in Securing Grid Stability, which particularly Challenges their Gensets

The amendment to the obligatory certification within the medium voltage guideline in 2013 catapulted combined heat and power units into a new league: they are now also in charge of stabilizing the dynamic German power supply network. This provides excellent opportunities for the technology, but it also means new obligations.  

Flexible Stiffness – Why Engineers like Oxymora so much

 There is often confusion in using oxymoron and paradox. Latter term might seem contradictory at first glance, but carries a deeper meaning – as shown in the picture above.

An oxymoron connects two contradictory terms. In the field of engineering this often means that the seemingly impossible has become possible. The same holds true for “flexible stiffness”. Learn what it is all about and let us know your personal favorite oxymoron.
