PCS100 ESS Highlights

What makes ABB's PCS100 ESS stand out?  

  • Utility grade solutions with advanced controls
  • Expertise in grid operations and systems
  • High performance in any climate
  • Minimized risk due to proven technology
  • Battery technology independence
  • Supports power system load levelling and thus helps defer network and generation investment
  • Increases network stability and transmission capacity and thus facilitates increased use of renewables

Today energy storage devices such as new generation batteries and renewable energy sources provide the opportunity to store energy from the electricity grid and return it when required. This offers a huge range of options to strengthen and enhance the performance, quality and reliability of smart electricity grids. Providing the grid connect inter-face for all types of energy storage devices, the PCS100 ESS is the perfect solution to connect energy storage devices to the grid.

The PCS100 ESS is based on a LV converter platform especially developed for power quality issues and characterized by wide bandwidth performance and great flexibility thanks to its modular power electronic configuration. It offers two main modes of operation, namely Current Source mode and Virtual Generator mode, which enables the PCS100 ESS to cover a wide range of applications and power system requirements.
