Power plant control and management for large-scale storage power plants
The INGECON SUN Plant Controller is a brand new development to help grid operators to predict the power plant performance.
It features an advanced algorithm that is combined with a fast and efficient communications system with response times of less than one second, permitting a precise control of the active and reactive power delivered to the grid.
The flexible and smart control solution
The INGECON SUN Plant Controller will manage the operation of the storage inverters, and it can also control PV inverters and diesel gensets. This controller comprises two basic systems: measurement and control. It can additionally incorporate a communication channel with the grid operator in order to receive the operating setpoints.
In order to determine the operating setpoints for each inverter and transmit the setpoints through the communication network, the Plant Controller measures the active power, the frequency, the reactive power and the voltage at the point of connection. It also measures the instantaneous active and reactive power values from the various inverters and it takes the grid operator's requirements to establish some parameters, such as power ramps, active power reserve, voltage at the point of connection, etc.
