Electrical authorities demand for control requirements that plants must meet to guarantee system stability. Some of them, with special relevance, such as the Limitation of Power (Power Curtailment) which adjusts available production to real demand. Others, as the Ramp Rate Control, allows softens the impact caused by sudden changes in environmental conditions that may affect the instantaneous capacity to generate renewable energy.
GPTech STATCOM solutions provide a source of reactive power control with the finest response to meet the grid requirements all time. Since 2006, GPTech has installed in energy plants with a total capacity which currently exceeds 1GW.
Voltage control is performed by the reactive capacity of installed systems. These are managed by the Power Plant Controller based on the grid operator references.
The technology of GPTech offers added values of signal quality through its advanced function for generation and control of Reactive Power. GridStability solutions together with GPTech conversion systems -WD3 and AMPS, and the Power Plant Controller are the perfect combination to solve reactive power challenges.
FAST INTEGRATION AND SCALABILITY
The development of own monitoring tools, together with the possibility of integration with third party SCADA solutions ensure a rapid and flexible solution.
In order to achieve optimum integration, we select the most widely accepted protocols adjusting the final features for each project.
Islanding operation options
Related to GridCapabilities needs, GPTech technologies offer different operation options in case of Islanding conditions, either they are expected or not.
