Reliable grid support with extra active power

Benefits of our solution

  • Grid stability
  • Provides system inertia
  • Mitigates frequency deviations
  • Improved power quality
  • Operation down to very low short circuit ratio (SCR) compared to conventional current control

Challenge

Grid support with extra active power

  • Background
  • Grid disturbances are less smoothed by rotating masses
  • Grid lacks extra active power
  • Key Challenges
  • Weaker & unstable grid due to the lack of rotating masses
  • Low power quality & high frequency deviations
  • Traditional converter is not ideal for weak AC grids or island systems
  • 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
