Grid Connect Projects

A new trend in renewable systems is the drive towards energy storage in the grid, This can meet grid needs in small systems such as micro or mini grids or also address utility problems in larger grid systems. These problems can be short term stability or grid problems around frequency regulation (ancillary services). It can address high penetration renewable problems such as intermittency or cloud effects. There is also a trend towards power smoothing and load profile shaping where storage can move load durations from one part of the day to another.

OPS is evaluating a number of battery technologies in Australia and seeking to determine the best fit for these technologies. Energy from the grid connected remote units can be used to reduce the load on the Feeder at any time during sunny hours. Also distributed energy units may include small scale storage. In the event of any cloud effect and related event where a drop in instantaneous PV output occurs, the Main Power Conversion unit can instantly schedule the export of more solar/battery energy to keep the loading of the grid at a required level.
