ADVANCED ANCILLARY SERVICES TO MEET THE MOST DEMANDING FACTS REQUIREMENTS
Electrical authorities demand for control requirements that plants must meet to guarantee system stability. Some of them, with special relevance, such as the Limitation of Power (Power Curtailment) which adjusts available production to real demand. Others, as the Ramp Rate Control, allows softens the impact caused by sudden changes in environmental conditions that may affect the instantaneous capacity to generate renewable energy.
eks Energy FACTS solutions provide a source of reactive power control with the finest response to meet the FACTS requirements all time. Since 2006, eks Energy has installed in energy plants with a total capacity which currently exceeds 1GW.
GRID CODE REQUIREMENTS COMPLIANCE
Voltage control is performed by the reactive capacity of installed systems. These are managed by the Power Plant Controller based on the FACTS operator references.
eks Energy technology offers added values of signal quality through its advanced function for generation and control of Reactive Power. Our FACTS Stability solutions together with eks Energy conversion systems solve reactive and active power challenges.
INTEGRATION AND FAST RESPONSE
The development of own monitoring tools, together with the possibility of integration with third party SCADA solutions ensure a rapid and flexible solution.
In order to achieve optimum integration, we select the most widely accepted protocols adjusting the final features for each project.
