Electricity generation is the process of generating electric power from other sources of primary energy. For electric utilities, it is the first process in the delivery of electricity to consumers. Electricity is most often generated at a power station by electromechanical generators, primarily driven by heat engines fuelled by combustion or nuclear fission. It is also possible to use e.g. kinetic energy created by flowing water and wind. Other energy sources include solar photovoltaics and geothermal power.

Acclaimed generator protection
We know that the protection and control of the generator at a power plant is your number one priority, requiring a wide range of specialised protection functionality. Our AQ-G215 is an acclaimed unit for generator protection and has already been installed at a high amount of power plants around the world. We also provide a wide range of loss-of-mains protection functions, including vector jump and rate of change of frequency.

Game changer: Generator Commander
We have now taken the game to a new level with the revolutionary Generator Commander. Generator Commander combines voltage regulation and synchronizing with generator protection functionality. As one unit now does what previously required 2–4 units, you can save both space and engineering time.
