Hybrid power plant using ComAp’s hybrid solution Description: Hybrid applications combine gen-sets (burning mostly fossil fuels) and renewable energy sources to reduce the amount of fuel burned. ComAp controllers feature fully automatic gen-set control and protections. This allows smooth operation of the system. They also provide full ECU support for ECU equipped engines. As many of these systems are located in remote locations they can profit from ComAp’s remote communication tools. ComAp has developed a dedicated controller for Hybrid applications InteliSysNTC Hybrid To ensure the system stability and to allow higher penetration of renewables ComAp has developed the function called Dynamic Spinning Reserve. This function allows the system to react flexibly to the changes in power produced by renewable energy sources. ComAp controllers can react to requested spinning reserve and keep the sufficient amount of gen-sets running to cover the drop in output of the renewable part (e.g. when the could covers the PV array). Fuel save mode manages outputs from gen-sets of different sizes, power outputs and different manufacturers, in such case the fuel save mode will automatically choose the most efficient combination of gen-sets based on their size to save some extra fuel. Interface to frequency inverters is necessary to prevent gen-sets from running under certain percentage of their nominal loads. In such case the controller regulates the inverter output to prevent the gen-sets from running under-loaded. Also in parallel to grid applications this allows to prevent the site from feeding the grid in places where it is not allowed.

ComAp controllers feature fully automatic gen-set control and protections. This allows smooth operation of the system. They also provide full ECU support for ECU equipped engines. As many of these systems are located in remote locations they can profit from ComAp’s remote communication tools. ComAp controllers are also prepared to cooperate with 3rd party controller. Intercommunication between 3rd party system and ComAp controller can be realized via Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP or analog line. There can be up to 32 ComAp controllers connected together and working in this system (including InteliGen NT BaseBox, InteliSys NT BaseBox and InteliMains NT BaseBox). To ensure the system stability and to allow higher penetration of renewables ComAp has developed the function called Dynamic Spinning Reserve. This function allows the system to react flexibly to the changes in power produced by renewable energy sources. ComAp controllers can react to requested spinning reserve and keep the sufficient amount of gen-sets running to cover the drop in output of the renewable part (e.g. when the could covers the PV array). For activation of Dynamic Spinning Reserve it is necessary to install the hybrid software and activate the Dynamic Spinning Reserve function (contact your official distributor for activation). Scope of supply: SW is available for InteliSys NTC Basebox, InteliGen NT(C) Basebox and InteliMains NT(C) Basebox controllers.
