As economies around the world look for better ways to make use of energy sources for base power and peak reserve, the need for stabilisation and energy ride-through is becoming more prevalent.
Kinetic energy storage offers an excellent solution for the bi-directional energy transfer necessary to compensate certain renewable energy sources. Piller rotary stabilisers can be used to manage the fluctuations of renewable energy such as wind and solar power, minimising perturbations on the electricity grid in the process.
With energy storage of up to 60MWs per unit, not only is stabilisation possible on a commercial level, so too is high power ride-through, making the use of embedded standby generation a real possibility for peak reserve and fast frequency response in utility networks.
The steadily increasing number of industrial facilities and data centres opting to generate their power requirements on-site depend on solutions that are stabilised when operating in island mode and can be seamlessly connected and disconnected from the utility supply.
