How do Pacific Energy's Hybrid Power Systems facilitate microgrid deployment?

Pacific's Advanced Energy Storage Units (AESU) are entirely modular and scalable for reliable electricity in off-grid applications such as community electrification as well as commercial and industrial operations where inadequate grid supply or tariffs favor renewables.

The AESUs can be transported in the back of a  pickup truck or hauled to a location on a trailer. They are readily available in 30, 50,100 and 150 kWh capacities. When connected to a diesel genset and/or a PV system, they always select the best available source of energy. This allows for maximum efficiency, and the cleanest power generation while storing energy when the source(s) of power is producing more electricity than the load required and then discharging when more power is needed.

A solution that grows seamlessly as demand increases

The AESU can be installed and commissioned within hours of arriving to a site. Its unique hybrid topology and intelligent power management will ensure that the cheapest power source is prioritized, automatically controlling the available sources to ensure that demand is met. Its remote monitoring and diagnostics capability eliminate the need for local supervision and control. The hybrid power solution also enables the paralleling of multiple units, helping supply easily to adjust with changing demand.

The core technology resides in the use of Pacific Energy's proprietary Intelligent Power Control  Management Technology (IPCM™). This enables in-series configuration between the Advanced Energy  Storage Unit (AESU™) and the generator. 

As shown in Figure 1below, utilizing DC-DC or AC-DC latest generation converters, Pacific Energy's hybrid power systems can seamlessly combine any distributed energy resources that are already available on site and connect with this to new distributed resources. Thus, delivering a far more resilient power network.  

Hybrid Power Systems

Hybrid power systems are designed to combine the power of two or more energy sources, such as solar-diesel reducing the burning of diesel resulting in lower harmful gas emissions, and providing greater effectiveness at a minimal cost. 

The rapid penetration of PV solar, along with evolving regulations are due to increased consumer awareness, the digital economy, technological advancement, and innovations. These are swiftly paving the way for a more sustainable, resilient and efficient electricity network that combines multiple types of distributed resources. 

Pacific Energy utilizes modular solutions that are designed around an innovative hybrid topology with a higher integration level. The benefits for the operator and the end-user are a simple yet dynamic system that is easily deployable, has a greatly reduced cost to operate and is virtually maintenance-free.

Pacific Energy PV hybrid system main benefits include the following:

 

  • Ease of installation and operation

  • Maintenance-free except for keeping the equipment clean to maximize performance

  • Modular and scalable to any size

  • High performance (efficiency resulting in significantly reduced fuel cost and dependence on refueling logistics)

  • Designed for a20-year operation, without scheduled battery replacement

  • Efficient expansion with "plug and play" modular equipment
