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 network operator and the equipment that makes up the plant. It complies with even the most restrictive requirements of network connection regulations.
The PPC can be configured to meet the most restrictive standards of electrical networks 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.
Potential 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 has become the leading supplier of utility-scale solar inverters for photovoltaic power plants in both North and Latin America, according to a 2019 report on market shares and ordering trends of inverters for solar power plants, published by Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.
Power Electronics chose the Intersolar Europe trade fair, held in Munich on 15-17 May, as the launch venue for its latest developments in solar energy, energy storage and electric mobility. The event marked a year since the company had successfully established itself as the number-one supplier of utility-scale solar inverters in the United States, Latin America and Spain.
The Valencia-based company Power Electronics will be participating, with its HEC V1500 solar inverter, in what is to be Iberdrola’s largest solar project in the world: the mega-sized Núñez de Balboa, complex in the municipalities of Usagre, Hinojosa del Valle and Bienvenida, in the Badajoz region of western Spain.
