Idea of the network

The transformation of the German energy supply in the context of the energy turnaround can only be realized through considerable technological innovations. If the classic energy supply is characterized by central generation with a few generators and a large contribution to short-circuit capacity, a supply network with many decentralized, regenerative feed-in points is now being created.

As a result, the topology of the supply networks changes comprehensively. In most cases, regenerative energy generators feed into the supply network via inverters. Due to the increasing number of decentralized generation plants and the increasing reduction of the short-circuit power, the supply network is becoming more and more susceptible to instabilities.

In addition, the consumer side has also changed very much. Energy-efficient drives are coupled to the supply network by means of converters. As a result, the supply network is burdened with higher frequency components (harmonics) in the mains currents. This, in conjunction with the decentralized feed, further increases the risk of instability.

Based on this, the partners of the cooperation network "netAKTOR" found their way to contribute to the improvement of the quality of electrical energy with new approaches and innovative product ideas.


With the work of the network, a broad public is to be made aware of the topic of "stable power grids" and the products to be developed contribute to stabilizing the power supply, especially in the low-voltage network. With the marketing of these products, an economic consolidation of the network partners and an increase in sales of the partners should be achieved at the same time.


Mission statement

The purpose of the network is to implement the formulated vision through appropriate activities and innovative product developments and thus to contribute to the stabilization of the power grids. The network partners treat each other fairly and are actively involved in the processes.

The partners work in the network in a project-oriented manner in order to develop new sales potentials for both the partners and users through their own innovation activities.

Through targeted public relations work, the network makes the desired goals and the results achieved accessible to a wide range of interested parties.


The network aims to comprehensively strengthen and expand the technology base and the competences of the partners in order to develop innovative solutions for stabilizing the power grids and to successfully place corresponding products, processes and services on the market. The medium-term goal of the partners is to generate additional added value in the area of stable power grids.

The aim of the network is to develop innovative technical products or services with high market potential. The cooperation with the international partners is balanced and offers clear advantages for added value for all partners. Furthermore, new fields of application for existing technologies are opened up. The international partners have experience in the project business, contribute with this experience to the network and thus promote the implementation of the network's project ideas.
