OPS together with Optimal Power Synergy India have completed a new solar PV, micro-grid system in the Andaman Islands. OPS India are currently providing a number of these renewable energy systems to remote Coast Guard sites.
The connected power sources include 75kWp of solar PV, a 240V, 2400Ah battery bank and 2 diesel generator sets rated to 30kVA each. OPS India have supplied two proprietary technology parallel inverter modules rated at 20kVA each, with a Station Control Module and other balance of system, power electronic components.
The Station Control Module employs specialised control software and will take suitable actions, based on inbuilt intelligence, to ensure reliable and optimum operation of the hybrid power plant. The Station Controller also provides remote monitoring of various system parameters such as battery status, loads, diesel genset operation. Other balance of system hardware was designed and built to suit the project requirements, including an AC Switching Cabinet and DC Distribtion Board and Combiner boxes.
This micro-grid system provides excellent power reliability and redundancy as well as significant diesel fuel savings.
