TAIPEI, May 25, 2021 / PRNewswire / – How Taiwan accelerates the introduction of renewable energies, Taipower, an electricity supplier for Taiwan Main and offshore islands, is started Asia First initiative for automatic frequency control (AFC) through the use of battery energy storage systems (BESS). The initiative was compared to a "virtual power plant" that not only significantly reduces CO2 emissions, but also generates 15 MW (megawatts) of electricity per second and offers three to five times faster frequency control than a large generator and brings more stability into the system Taiwan Power supply.
FIMER's PVS980-58BC, installed here at Tatung's home appliance factory, will help stabilize Taiwan's grid, which is exposed to the intermittent nature of renewable energies.
In cooperation with the TSE-listed smart energy conglomerate Tatung (Tatung: 2371), the Italian solar inverter manufacturer FIMER was selected to provide its BESS solution, with which the power grid can compensate for fluctuations due to the generation of renewable energies.
While renewable energies such as solar and wind energy significantly reduce CO2 emissions, the final total power output is often subject to different natural conditions such as the weather. To enable high penetration of variable renewable energy, FIMER's PVS980-58BC helps increase grid flexibility and better integration of renewable resources.
It will play a vital role in stabilizing the grid in order to minimize energy Fluctuations. On When receiving a command from the energy management system (EMS) in the event of an unplanned generator failure, the PVS980-58BC minimizes power interruptions by fully charging and discharging within 20 milliseconds (ms) of transmission time.
“We are honored to work with Tatung to bring our energy storage solutions to various locations in Taiwan as part of the Taipower initiative. FIMER's PVS980-58BC bidirectional converter, certified to UL 1741, meets the UL 9540 Energy Storage System (ESS) requirements after being in our laboratories in. has been subjected to a rigorous stress test process Finland and Italy before they are used. It is Developed to safely and reliably supply projects in the supply sector with electricity even under the toughest weather conditions, if in freezing temperatures or in extreme heat, "said FIMER Taiwan CEO Vincent Wu.
"We pride ourselves on providing high quality bidirectional converters (Power conversion system, PCS) to improve Taipower's AFC initiative and help customers comply with the latest regulations for large electricity consumers. With Taiwan With the rapid expansion of the introduction of renewable energies, FIMER is ready to help the market achieve its goal of generating 20% of its household electricity from renewable energies by 2025. "
