A building block of smart grids.
Wherever electricity is consumed, generated, or moved there is a transformer. This key technology has not changed in 100+ years.
IONATE’s next generation hardware
replaces transformers and for the first time, enables real-time control in these nodal points. It removes the need for expensive add-on devices and transforms the system at its very foundations.
"The IONATE Hybrid Intelligent Transformer has the potential to be a game-changer, replacing conventional passive transformers with state-of-the-art real-time control nodes."
Luís Manuel, Executive board member of EDP Innovation
A solution for the energy transition.
Our Hybrid Intelligent Transformer – or HIT as we call it – monitors and controls key properties of power in real-time with millisecond-level precision. It offers a reliable, affordable, plug-and-play control device for energy players across the grid.
Explore our wide-ranging hardware use cases here:
A system that optimises itself.
HITs light up control nodes in a previously passive network. As more and more HITs are activated, they work in concert to unlock systemic benefits.
Less energy is lost during distribution, keeping costs and emissions down.
Enables more wind and solar generation to be reliably added.
Allows more electricity to be delivered through existing infrastructure.
Allows dynamic control of the system to continually adapt to situations.
Perfect Power Quality
Improves efficiency and lifetime of equipment.
Real-time monitoring and control of the electricity grid-edge.
