NEWS for Immediate Release:
South Burlington, VT, USA (January 21, 2013) – Dynapower Company LLC, a Vermont based leading supplier of power conversion systems, commissioned over 50 megawatts (MW) of grid tied bi-directional energy storage inverters in December 2012. The inverters are the lynchpin of energy storage systems that connect to the electric grid via a variety of storage mediums, including lithium ion and lead acid batteries.
“Our bi‐directional inverters delivered from our Energy Management Systems group, are being used by utilities and integrators in a variety of applications including renewable energy, frequency regulation and VAR support for grid stability,” said Adam Knudsen, Dynapower Company President. “December’s commissioning covered multiple projects including a single installation rated for continuous duty of 36 MW with an overload rating of more than 45 MW.”
These projects will demonstrate how energy storage and power management technologies can help grid-scale wind and solar PV power systems address intermittency issues by utilizing an energy storage and power management system that optimizes the delivery of energy, in addition to providing regulation service to the utility market.
The inverters commissioned in December include Dynapower’s Compact Power System™ [CPS] family of 600 VAC class inverters and the Dynapower PowerSkid™ product which offer customers an integrated package of power electronics, switch gear, metering, and transformer to a direct medium voltage interconnection. To further demonstrate the capabilities of energy storage systems Dynapower has installed a 1.8 MW PowerSkid™ system at its facility. The system will be comprised of four different storage technologies used to integrate an onsite 100 kW wind turbine, 101 kW roof‐mounted solar array and more than 2 MW-‐hours of energy storage. The system is expected to come online March 2013 and will be the first of its kind combining a variety of battery technologies into a common system.
Dynapower is the market leader in Grid Tied Power Electronics for Energy Storage applications providing more than 50% of the installed power in the US market. In 2013 Dynapower will continue to add to its international installed base of energy storage inverters servicing a variety of customers from utilities to renewable energy integrators and private commercial customers.
