Fronius supports stable grid operation
Eberstalzell in scenic Upper Austria not only boasts the largest photovoltaic research power station in Austria, it is also the site of a Smart Grid demonstration system. The aim of the system is to be well prepared for the increase in use of renewable sources of energy. Stable grid operation and maximum reliability of supply must be guaranteed. Fronius inverters support these objectives.
By the end of 2015, it is expected that 6,000 new solar power systems will go on stream in Austria each year. The grids must be able to cope with this onslaught, so robust and intelligent systems are the order of the day. The pilot project in Eberstalzell is a control concept for an active low-voltage grid. A specific grid segment that will contain around 70 photovoltaic systems is to be used as a test array. A Fronius IG Plus V inverter will be installed in each of these PV systems to provide stable grid operation.
