NEDO New Mexico Smart Grid Demonstration Project
As an example of Hitachi’s power system stabilization solutions including energy storage systems being deployed overseas, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has commissioned a Demonstration Project in Los Alamos County, New Mexico, USA, which includes a lead acid battery system comprised of lead acid batteries (LL1500-W model which is produced by Shin-Kobe Electric Machinery Co., Ltd.), a 500-kVA PCS for storage batteries. The PCS is a hybrid type that includes two circuits of DC/DC converters that can be connected to storage batteries and photovoltaic cells.
This demonstration project involves the construction of a system that is interconnected with the distribution line, and is engaging in a demonstration study into the effectiveness of suppressing short-term output fluctuations in photovoltaic power generation through the charging and discharging of lead-acid batteries.
