PPC

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.

Network support.

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.

Potential-Frequency Control

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.

Voltage Control

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.
