Abstract

HYBRID RENEWABLE ENERGY PRODUCTION SYSTEM AND CONNECTION TO EXISTING NETWORK

Introduction

HYBRID RENEWABLE ENERGY PRODUCTION SYSTEM AND CONNECTION TO EXISTING NETWORK
Many island countries have identified transition to renewable energy as a key priority, and ensuring a smooth integration of clean energy into the mix is now a decisive step towards energy independence


Approach

While combining wind power or photovoltaics with diesel generation can reduce fossil fuel consumption in off-grid applications, each project will require the right technology and system design to address the grid characteristics and Utility requirements, in order to achieve the right level of security and ultimately the best return on investment for the grid operator.
At the center of these challenges, grid stability must drive the design of hybrid systems to ensure their successful operation over time.

Main body of abstract

VERGNET has been integrating renewable energy plants for over 20 years, and has developed and installed a real-time control solution to optimize wind penetration in off-grid applications. Through experience and case studies, VERGNET will illustrate some of the key steps and technical solutions which led to the successful implementation of renewable energy projects on islanded grids worldwide.


Conclusion

VERGNET will illustrate some of the key steps and technical solutions which led to the successful implementation of renewable energy projects on islanded grids worldwide.


Learning objectives
Recent hybrid projects were awarded to VERGNET for plants in Samoa (wind) and Kiribati (PV) including its real time hybrid controller: Hybrid Wizard®.
