The “SMART MICRO GRID” is one of the future sub-elements of the SMART GRID. These are cells of a couple of MW (e.g. for villages, a part of a town or for industrial plants.) Its main characteristic is the medium voltage and low voltage level for energy distribution. SMART MICRO GRID may include renewable sources, energy storage and an intelligent distribution system with energy flow management carried out by intelligent power electronic devices balancing both load and source. A business case was completed for the topic “SMART MICRO GRID for small and medium enterprises.” AEG PS has started setting up a demonstration installation at its factory in Belecke, including PV Installations, combined heat & power station, battery energy storage and energy management.
The combined heat and power plant converts the gas into electrical and thermal power at an efficiency of 90%.
CO2 savings of 1.900 tons per year
The parking lot‘s solar cells wih a power of 250 kWp + 80 kWp delivers electrical energy, which is fed into the grid, stored in batteries or converted into gas.
Ultra-high efficiency inverters from AEG Power Solutions convert the solar energy into AC power.
