More than 1.3 billion people living in remote parts of the world either have no access to electricity at all, or have access to limited and / or unreliable electrical sources. As our global population increases and energy-intensive lifestyle accelerates, we become ever more dependent on reliable supplies of electricity to power our lives. Rising to this challenge, governments around the world are investing in infrastructure to help deliver electricity to poorly-connected areas. These are not futuristic possibilities, but field-proven technology solutions available today that have been at work in dozens of installations around the world for the past 15 years.
ABB’s offering includes stabilization as well as automation and intelligent control solutions that manage renewable energy generation in remote or isolated grids, ensuring utility-grade power quality and grid stability. ABB's unique microgrid solutions enable very high levels of wind and solar power penetration in isolated diesel- powered grids, reducing CO2
emissions as well as dependency on fossil fuel supplies that are not only costly, but also uncertain.
The ABB's Microgrid Plus control solution consists of Microgrid Plus SystemTM
control system and the PowerStoreTM
flywheel or battery-based grid stabilizing system. This solution calculates the most economical power configuration, ensuring a proper balance of supply and demand that maximizes renewable energy integration, providing for up to 100% renewable penetration and highest level of stability and reliability. It optimizes the network’s generators operations so the entire system performs at peak potential. This solution helps customers achieve grid quality power without the need to burn tons of fossil fuel, avoiding the equivalent CO2
