Solar power company Belectric’s lead-acid battery storage system has been prequalified to provide 1.3MW of frequency control for Germany’s high voltage grid.

The €560,000 ($609,000) 948kWh Energy Buffer Unit (EBU) was initially installed to provide backup at the 67.8 MW Alt Daber solar project in Brandenburg, Germany.

The system will now provide frequency response to the German transmission network operator (TNO) 50Hertz, and will assist in frequency across the country’s high voltage grid from the Alt Daber plant.

The EBU includes power inverter and a medium voltage transformer. Depending on configuration, it has the ability to deliver between 800 and 1400kW of power storage.

It can also be prequalified for frequency response on the German transmission network at up to 650 kW, taking account of the reserve capacity required by German TNOs.

Samsung SDI launches new hybrid system
Share page with AddThis

Samsung SDI has announced the launch of a new UPS and ESS hybrid system, aptly named UES.

While the UES system stores power like an ESS system, it is also designed to work as a UPS system during power outages. The system has been fitted with lithium-ion cells and Samsung’s own energy management system, allowing a two-way exchange of energy that is said to both prevent power outages and reduce energy costs.

It is claimed that installing the UES could cut costs with up to 30%, compared using separate ESS and UPS systems.

The UES made its operational debut on 1 April, running at the company’s Uiwang R&D centre.

The unit installed in Uiwang will provide Samsung with the key data necessary to promote the system on the global UPS market.
