ABB plug-and-play modular microgrid

Friday, 14 October, 2016 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd



ABB has announced a modular and scalable plug-and-play microgrid to address the growing demand for flexible technology in the developing market for distributed power generation. It is relevant for mature and emerging countries and will help maximise the use of renewable energy sources while reducing dependence on fossil fuels used by generator sets.

All the equipment required to run the microgrid — ABB’s power converter and dedicated control system, Microgrid Plus, as well as battery storage — has been integrated into a container for fast, easy and safer deployment. The user can choose to configure the microgrid to integrate energy from solar, wind, main grid or diesel generator supply, based on the application and local conditions.

ABB’s PowerStore Battery and Microgrid Plus control system not only provide power access to remote areas, but also secure uninterrupted power supply to communities and industries during both planned and unplanned power outages from the main grid supply. Operations and maintenance is enabled via a cloud-based remote service system.

The modular microgrid is compact and has four predesigned variants in the range of 50 to 4600 kW to meet varying user needs. The standard integrated functionalities include grid-connected and off-grid operation with seamless transition.
