Transmission And Distribution Systems

Transmission And Distribution Systems

Green Energy & Mobility

There is a trend in the transmission and distribution of electric power toward the use of larger-scale systems, to cope with large power plants and to reduce transmission losses through the use of high transmission line voltages. Hitachi has extensive experience in this field through its supply of highly reliable transformers, switchgear, and other products throughout the world. Hitachi has also been working in recent years on smart grids that supply electric power reliably and without waste, and that combine conventional power plants with sources such as wind and photovoltaic power generation for which output levels are difficult to control.

Railway Systems

Green Energy & Mobility

Concerns for the environment, and a desire to improve the efficiency of national transportation systems are moving more governments towards rail for mass transportation of goods and people. For almost 100 years, Hitachi has been a major supplier to the world's most demanding rail markets. Our rail product portfolio includes rolling stock, signaling equipment, traffic management systems, planning systems, traction equipment and maintenance. Hitachi Rail is one of the few railway manufacturers who can realize seamless integration throughout a project, handling all aspects of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) to Operation & Maintenance services. Beyond delivering turnkey mass passenger transit and long distance mainline rail for freight, Hitachi-Rail has been developing highly functional solutions for signaling, telecom and power. The team is also combining digital asset management and dynamic headway & passenger management into their metro rail systems. These two management systems securitize big data trends to estimate passenger real time demand, so wait times are reduced during rush-hours and/or cultural events serviced by public transportation.
