ABB has announced a modular and scalable “plug and play” microgrid solution to address the globally growing demand for flexible technology in the developing market for distributed power generation.
All the equipment required to run the microgrid, ABB’s power converter and dedicated control system, Microgrid Plus, as well as battery storage, has been integrated into a container. The customer can choose to configure the microgrid to integrate energy from solar, wind, main grid or diesel generator supply, based on the application and local conditions. The modular microgrid has four pre-designed variants in the range of 50 kW to 4,600 kW. The standard integrated functionalities include grid-connected and off-grid operation with seamless transition. Operations and maintenance is enabled via a cloud-based remote service system.
