Power Plant Controller
The Power Plant Controller is compatible with all our models of solar inverter, converter and STATCOM. Installed at the generating plant’s interconnection point, it provides an interface between the grid operator and the equipment that makes up the plant. It complies with even the most restrictive requirements of grid connection regulations.
The PPC can be configured to meet the most restrictive standards of electrical grids of all kinds. Operating subject to the instructions of an external controller, it offers a great variety of methods of control to help ensure the quality and stability of the electrical system.
Active Output Control
The PPC allows you to regulate active power in an open or closed loop. In an open loop, the active power measured at the interconnection point should be equal to its defined rating, minus plant power losses. In a closed loop, availability of the command reference depends on sufficient active power being available in the plant.
Active power can be adjusted automatically in response to high- or low-frequency events.
Reactive Output Control
The PPC allows you to regulate reactive power in an open or closed loop. In an open loop, the reactive power measured at the interconnection point should be equal to its defined rating, minus plant power losses. In a closed loop, availability of the command reference depends on sufficient reactive power being available in the plant.
Power Factor Control
This control mode is implemented in a closed loop. It inputs are the active power measured at the interconnection point and the adjusted reference value of the power factor obtained at that point.
Depending on the voltage measured at the interconnection point and the defined voltage setpoint, the PPC controls the equipment that makes up the plant system based on the value of the inductive or capacitive reactive power supplied as required to reduce or increase the voltage reading at the interconnection point in order to reach the adjusted reference setpoint.
Control of Reactive-Voltage Potential
Reactive potential can be adjusted automatically in response to high- or low-frequency events.
Power Electronics participated last November 4 in the test of the St Francis solar plant in East Sussex, driven by one of the world’s leading companies in the development and long-term management of solar projects named Lightsource BP. The test is part of the “Power Potential” project led by National Grid ESO and UK Power […]
Power Electronics exceeds 2.5 GW of installed power in utility scale photovoltaic plants in Spain in 2019. In total, the company has participated in 82 PV projects in Spain. Just in the last year, Power Electronics has participated in 36 projects, which makes the company a leader in sales in this market. All the products comply with all the grid quality requirements, pending the publication of the product certification entities by ENAC.
Power Electronics opens its first delegation in Southeast Asia with the aim of positioning itself in a region with very good growth prospects in the use of renewable energy. By 2040, photovoltaic solar energy will have surpassed coal as the largest source of energy and will provide 49% of the region's electricity needs. Renewable energies are expected to provide 84% of total energy generation by 2050.
