Los Andes Substation Battery Energy Storage System - AES Gener
The Los Andes project provides critical contingency services to maintain the stability of the electric grid in Northern Chile, an important mining area. The project continuously monitors the condition of the power system and if a significant frequency deviation occurs, such as the loss of a generator or transmission line, the Los Andes system provides up to 12 MW of power nearly instantaneously. This output can be maintained for 20 minutes at full power, allowing the system operator to resolve the event or bring other standby units online.
