Energy storage system supports microgrid and allows participation in the national frequency market
Our customer has a 60000 m2 delivery center for daily grocery stores. Merus™ ESS supports the customer's 20kV microgrid. A 2.6 MW / 1.55 MWh 20 kV Li-ion battery energy storage system provides a buffer for excess solar production for later use and enables emergency diesel generators' (2×1300 kVA) network connection in real-time. The energy storage also executes a peak shaving where maximum peak power demand is compensated from the storage, so the power intake from the network will be stabilized. The energy storage enhances the power quality and minimizes the losses in different electrical components, such as transformers, cables etc. It also extends the lifetime of different electrical devices and components.
The energy storage is participating in the well-paid national Frequency Regulation Reserve markets (FCR) and also bridges the emergency generators to the markets.
