New micro-grid technology to transform installations
Aligned with the government’s program of 24x7 power for all and focus on renewable energy, ABB is bringing its new integrated micro-grid solution, MGS100 that combines solar power and enables battery energy storage. Encased in a single container, the MGS100 has three power ratings – 20 kW, 40 kW, 60 kW nominal load power. Installation is quick and easy, as it is factory tested and embedded DC and AC protections make it ready to connect. With the added benefit of remote monitoring, vital diagnostics are always available and maintenance is simple.
The scalable system can be connected to multiple power sources to provide electricity for remote villages that are not connected to the main grid, or reliable back-up power for small commercial and industrial facilities using an inconsistent grid supply, enabling social and economic development.
Tarak Mehta, President - Electrification Products, ABB said, “The MGS100 is a plug-and-play solution that makes access to affordable and reliable power a reality. The modular and standardised solution makes rapid deployment possible even in remote locations.”
The MGS100 will be widely available at the end of 2017.
