NICE GRID project
Successful islanding for 5h
Pioneering energy storage system successfully supports district isolated from mains electricity for a record 5 hours, without interruption to consumers.
In disconnected or “islanded” mode, clients continue to be supplied via Socomec’s PCS²’s energy storage system and photovoltaic production. The disconnection may be scheduled, in order to reduce load on the main power grid, or unforeseen, due to a power cut.
Socomec’s “network islanding” solution is based on the SUNSYS PCS² power conversion and storage control and command system which manages the disconnection and reconnection of the district to the mains supply.
