This power plant is required to work with any other power plant offered in this catalog. Its purpose is, as in a real microgrid, to create the basis of the structure of the micro grid and determine the frequency and voltage parameters of the latter. The rest of the power plants will be synchronized to this thanks to the stability produced. In addition, this application acts as a base generation in the micro grid, providing constant power. As in real micro grids, this application represents diesel or gas power plants, normally used in islands or other systems based on micro grids.
It is essential that this application is complemented with some of the renewable energy applications recommended in this catalog in order to create a complete micro grid.
This application includes a turbine-generator group consisting of an electric motor (turbine) coupled to a three-phase synchronous generator for generating electricity. For the control of the turbine-generator group, a digital multifunction controller (AVR and ASC) is included, which will allow an optimal regulation of all its electrical and mechanical parameters. The most relevant control parameters are the turbine speed, the generator frequency, the excitation current, the voltage and the P, Q and S powers of the generator. In addition, this control module is also an advanced protection of generators and turbines. It complies with the ANSI standard regarding the protection parameters of generators and turbines (ANSI 81O, ANSI 81U, ANSI 59, ANSI 27, ANSI 50/51, ANSI 32R / F, ANSI IOP 32, ANSI MOP 32, ANSI 46 , Voltage Asymmetry, Generator Ground Fault, Phase Rotation, ANSI IEC 255, Generator Lagging Power Factor, among others).
On the other hand, this application also includes a dynamic load control module as a point of power consumption in the micro grid. This programmable module allows to elaborate real demand curves, programming the maximum and minimum power consumption as well as the times of valley consumption This process of generating demand profiles allows to study the different management and control maneuvers carried out in the micro grid by the electric operator (user). The application also includes the network analyzers necessary for the measurement of the electrical parameters of the micro grid such as the energy generated and the energy consumed by the dynamic load. These analyzers meet the standards of "Smart Metering" by having two-way communication with the other elements of the network for optimal management of it.
