A control system for photovoltaic power plants enabling ancillary services for the electrical grid
To accelerate the transition towards a 100% renewable and functional electrical grid, we need to replace by renewables not only the energy but also the ancillary services needed to maintain a reliable and safe operation of the electrical grid. The Solution consists of a control system for PV plant that enables the plant to provide ancillary services. It works by allowing the PV plant to be controlled remotely by the grid operator and to react and adapt power production, electrical grid frequency and voltage avoiding blackouts, failures and damages to the equipment of the consumers. By doing this a PV plant can stabilize the electrical grid guarantee a safe and reliable operation. At the same time, the PV plant can effectively reduce its use of other technologies, such as polluting thermal power plants that currently operates for the sole purpose of providing reliable services to the grid.
