Plant Control
For Grid Stability

Control at the grid connection point in line with grid operators' requirements.

On-grid power plants must be capable of peak load shifting and shaving, and of controlling those factors that are critical for grid stability. Our flexible power plant controller allows for precise power plant control at the grid connection point in line with grid operators' requirements. Operating at the control level of your power plant, skycontrol looks after all tasks of grid stability management as defined by the local grid operator and augments these with protective functions. Regardless of the types of inverters and energy meters in place, skycontrol provides your PV plant with a flexible and stable grid input.

At the grid connection point
why is control required?

  • Distributed bulk power systems feed into an electricity grid which originally was designed for centralized, top-down electricity distribution and supply at all voltage levels – low voltage systems, distribution systems and even energy transportation systems.
  • Renewable power plants: Wind, photovoltaic, CSP, biogas, geothermal
  • Fluctuating energy injection by renewables due to variable weather conditions
  • Fluctuating load profiles (day, night)
  • Irregular energy injection and energy extraction in sub-grids
  • Limited energy transport capacities of  legacy transmission and distribution grids
  • Limited capabilities of conventional power plants to balance out fluctuations
  • Grid faults – sudden load shedding and short circuits

Decentralized measurement of:

  • Voltage support
  • Injection of reactive power (cos ϕ)
  • Frequency stability monitoring
  • Ramp rate control (positive ramps)
