Systems and solutions for successful utility plant design

Grid integration
As an intermittent, widely dispersed source of energy, solar presents a challenge to power grids. It demands sophisticated solutions to balance supply and demand and avoid stress on the grid.

ABB has the advanced technologies needed for successful grid integration for installations of all sizes both at the connection point and at the system level with our smart grid solutions for distribution grid automation, forecasting, load and demand planning, and energy storage.

Control
Managing power has never been as complex as it is today, and its complexity will only increase in the future as a more diverse portfolio of power generation assets comes online.

Grid connection
ABB offers a range of products and solutions that help to efficiently connect PV plants to the medium voltage grid.

In-depth knowledge of renewable power generation technologies and comprehensive experience with grid codes and utility practices in use around the world enables us to provide grid connection solutions for PV plants of all sizes.

Electrical balance of plant
ABB’s solutions for PV power plants are designed to maximize plant performance and provide owners with a rapid return on investment and long plant operating life.

ANSI instrument transformers for indoor application

Utilities can collect additional revenue without having to increase rates per kilowatt hours -- simply by improving the range and accuracy of metering. With ABB's AccuRange® current transformers, hidden power at the low end of the range is detected and measured while mid-range power is more finely metered for its true value. At the same time, the potential increase in upper range current will provide assets additional protection.

Available in voltage classes ranging from 0.6 kV to 35 kV.
