Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor synthetic inertia applications

synthetic inertia

Improved power quality & dynamic voltage support

Benefits of our solution

  • Reduction in the Rate of Change of Frequency
  • Improved power quality and dynamic voltage support
  • Simultaneous active and reactive power contribution
  • Reduced costs for must-run units and primary reserve
  • Environmentally friendly - no CO2 emissions
  • Prevents blackouts

Challenge

Lack of inertia in electricity grids

  • Background
  • Grid disturbances are less smoothed by rotating masses
  • Key Challenges
  • Grids with high share of renewables lack inertia
  • Weaker & unstable grid due to the lack of rotating masses
  • Increased or high RoCoF (Rate of Change of Frequency)
  • Imbalance in load and generation causes frequency excursions
  • known consequences
  • No contribution to support the grid with extra temporary active power (virtual inertia)
  • No enhancement in frequency support
  • Higher risk of load shedding or grid black outs
