WP Leader contact: Alberto Escalera, Red Eléctrica de España
The main objectives of WP4 demonstrator are to develop:
- A Master Control System to integrate different flexibility solutions, coordiate their operations and identify possible control strategies.
- A new hybrid and modular storage solution with the capability to offer multiple services.
- A lithium-ion battery connected at high voltage in DC (≥ 1 kV) to improve the integration of batteries in the HV grid.
The integrated solution, called Hybrid Flexibility Device (HFD), aims to provide different flexibility services (frequency regulation, voltaje control, congestion management…)
WP status (November 2020)
The demonstrator to be installed at CENER grid-connected facilities will operate a Hybrid Flexibility Device (HFD) combining STATCOM, supercapacitors and 1500V DC Battery system. The integrated solution will provide different flexibility services (inertia emulation, frequency regulation, voltage control, …). The engineering of the solution is completed, as well as the factory acceptance tests of the 0.5MWh/2MW Lithium-ion battery system. The modelling of the Hybrid Flexible Device and microgrid is ongoing for the development of the master control and its SCADA.
Simulations were conducted on the Lanzarote-Fuerteventura system to select optimal parameters for the HFD Device control system. GPTECH is currently working on the containerization and wiring of all power module components in the container, which should be completed by December 2020. The overall demonstration is planned to be installed in-field by March 2021.
