General Description

The purpose of this application is to demonstrate the importance of energy storage in isolated environments. In this case, it is a sophisticated application in charge of storing kinetic energy through a flywheel. It has a bidirectional inverter that allows you to take energy from the micro grid and then return it in specific moments of need. The advantage of this type of applications is that, since they are power electronics (bidirectional inverter), they have a high response speed. In this way, power plants such as hydroelectric or wind have enough time to react to sudden changes in demand.
