Abstract:Xtreme Power will review a 10MW/10MWH implementation of Storage based Power Systems used to smooth the output of wind farm. The systems will also be used to provide overall grid stability and be capable of delivering limited power production in case of a drop in wind currents. The operating and control system will review the features, specifications and capabilities of managing 10MW of power with micro-second response times. This commercial installation is due to be installed and active in the 2nd half of 2009.
