Product category: Off-Grid Systems

Two Plattforms for off-grid / Micro Grid Systems

Based on the long experience with high reliable UPS systems AEG PS has collected a lot of experience with off-grid / Micro Grid applications.

Today we offer two topologies_
1. AC linked systems:
All devices of the Micro-Grid are linked by the common AC-link. Supply units and Loads are connected together. Voltage and frequency are kept stable by droop control and micro grid controller. The core product of AEG PS is its Convert SC.Flex
2. DC linked systems:
Based on a industrial UPS the DC circuit of the UPS is used to link batteries and PV plants. The AC input of the UPS can handle grid and gensets.

Which topology makes more sense? it depends on the project size and the technical layout of the micro grid.

AEG Power Solutions Announces Convert SC Flex, its Upgraded & Flexible Storage Converter at Energy Storage Europe 2018

AEG Power Solutions Announces Convert SC Flex, its Upgraded & Flexible Storage Converter at Energy Storage Europe 2018

- Increased maximum power up to 1 MW
- Reduced costs and easier to maintain
- Flexible DC input range: ready for use with any types of battery

Warstein-Belecke, Germany, March 6, 2018 - AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of power supply systems and solutions for all types of critical and demanding applications, announces its upgraded storage converter, Convert SC Flex. The system has been completely revamped to increase the power range of each unit up to 1000 kVA* and to provide maximum flexibility on input power.

Convert SC Flex bi-directional power converter with IGBT technology is based on the extensive experience of AEG Power Solutions in both power supply and conversion. The new system benefits of an enhanced power range up to 1MW for a single unit and provides an outstanding conversion efficiency factor for both the charging and discharging phases. Convert SC Flex offers a wide range of DC input voltage which spans from 330 V to 1000 V. This allows to use the converter with any type of battery technology.

As the core element of any battery energy storage system, the converter charges and discharges batteries to store or provide power according to the application requirement such as frequency control, peak shaving, energy shifting (temporary storage to re-inject power when maximizing profitability), or voltage control (often used to balance the voltage instability generated by integration of renewables in the grid).

As its predecessor SC.600, the Convert SC Flex includes an option for seamless transition between off-grid and on-grid mode. This extends the battery energy system’s usage beyond its core functions, such as peak shaving for system back-up in the event of a grid blackout. This feature is crucial when battery energy storage is used in areas where grid reliability is at stake or for full off-grid applications.

Thanks to the on-grid off- grid mode seamless transition capability, AEG PS solution for battery storage installation becomes ideally suited to support any type of energy storage application as well as simultaneously secure power supply for critical processes and infrastructure.

Convert SC Flex is one of the key component of the innovative hybrid energy storage solutions designed by AEG PS, which combines battery energy storage with Power-To-Heat and significantly reduces the cost of primary-frequency power operation. The solution has been chosen by swb Erzeugung AG & Co. KG (swb) a Bremen-based German utility for its primary-frequency control power operations and will become operational June 2018.

“Convert SC Flex was designed based on our experience with SC.600 and our knowledge of market requirements, explains Andreas Becker, head of Energy Storage at AEG Power Solutions. Its full flexibility in terms of DC input as well as its increased power capacity makes it a solution of choice and excellence when it comes to power conversion for energy storage systems of any kind. The new design also optimizes the cost of the product but also simplifies its maintenance and consequently improves operational costs for our customers.”

Convert SC Flex is available. AEG Power Solutions will be present at Energy Storage Düsseldorf to introduce it, hall 8B, Stand C27.

AEG Power Solutions Announces that SWB Chose its Innovative Concept of Combined Battery Energy Storage and Power to Heat to Provide Primary-Frequency Control Power

AEG Power Solutions Announces that SWB Chose its Innovative Concept of Combined Battery Energy Storage and Power to Heat to Provide Primary-Frequency Control Power

  • First operational implementation of a brand-new concept developed by AEG Power Solutions
  • The facility has an installed capacity of 20 MW allowing it to deliver 15MW of primary frequency control power
Zwanenburg, The Netherlands, January 31, 2018–, AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of power supply systems and solutions for industrial, critical infrastructure environments and innovative power electronic applications, today announced that swb Erzeugung AG & Co. KG (swb) a Bremen-based German utility chose its innovative concept of combining battery energy storage and power-to-heat for its primary-frequency control power operations. This service is provided to gridoperators to stabilize the grid and is increasingly needed as renewable sources are integrated.

In this hybrid system, energy is stored both in a battery system and an electrical heating system which are connected to the power converter. These are controlled as one unit to provide the required bidirectional power flow (to or from the grid) to balance the frequency and ultimately to ensure the stabilization of the grid.

AEG Power Solutions designed this unique concept based on its power electronic expertise. The patent is currently under review. The company has engineered the complete solution and will provide swb with 24 storage converters integrated in ISOmetal sheet containers together with an hybrid storage option, low-voltage distribution cabinets, auxiliary power supply as well as medium voltage transformers and the heating system in separate enclosures. This hybrid storage system significantly reduces the cost of primary-frequency power operation. First, the required battery capacity is significantly smaller compared to a conventional battery-only system (approx. 50%), and the second source of storage (heating)is considerably less expensive. Additionally, power electronics and all components for grid connection (e.g. transformer) are used twice by utilizing both storage systems which contributes to minimizing installation hardware costs. This improves the pay back for the operators of the system and helps to reduce grid fees which is of general public interest. “Our team has worked on this solution since 2015, explains Jörg Liedloff, CTO at AEG Power Solutions, we are convinced that this approach is a very cost-effective and highly reliable one to support grid-stabilization requirements. It’s a great achievement for us to partner and implement it together with swb which is in charge of the global control system. We strongly believe that the market for such solutions is maturing now and will offer us further opportunities.”

“At swb we believe we can develop a sustainable and renewable energy supply, says Jens-Uwe Freitag, managing director at swb Erzeugung AG & Co. KG. The hybrid system concept developed by AEG PS is innovative and a perfect match for SWB as we supply electrical and thermal energy already today. We cooperated tightly with the AEG PS team. This solution will contribute to position us strongly in our market.”

The facility will be installed on site by May 2018.
