Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor frequency response  applications

frequency response

Stabilizing frequency with active power boost

Benefits of our solution

  • Rate of Change of Frequency reduction
  • Provide Fast Frequency Response service
  • Frequency stabilization
  • Simultaneous active and reactive power contribution
  • Environmentally friendly featuring no CO2 emissions
  • Prevent blackouts

Challenge

High rate of renewables require services to stabilize the frequency

  • Background
  • Grids with high penetration of renewables require ancillary services to stabilize the frequency
  • Key Challenges
  • Need for energy storage technologies with fast reaction speeds
  • Increasing frequency deviations caused by imbalance in load in generation
  • Lack of flexibility in the grid = lack of controlled active power contribution for defined amounts of time
  • known consequences
  • No contribution to support the grid with ancillary services
  • No enhancement in frequency support
    Higher risk of load shedding or grid black outs
