The Inverter Stations and Control Platform from the Spanish company GPTech have been chosen for the complete energy management of the plant generation.
For this purpose a solution that comprises fifteen GPTech Inverter Stations (IS), have been provided. Every GPTech has a conversion capacity over 4MW and it comes fully-integrated with the MV step-up elements.
In addition, the energy management is performed dinamically by the GPTech EKS® Supervisory and Control Platform which provides advanced Grid Support Functions to ensure grid code compliance. The Platform includes three interrelated control levels, which gives an optimal response to the requirements of the electrical network.
Javier Landero – GPTech CEO- has told: “This project is really relevant from the technical point of view and involves the introduction of outdoor equipment in a harsh environment due to the extreme temperatures, enabling lower operation and maintenance costs. We are very satisfied with the Acciona’s confidence in our solutions for projects where reliability and customization are critical factors.”
The facility will increase the portion of renewables in its mix to produce 63 gigawatt-hours (GWh/yy), avoiding every year the emission of more than 60,000 tonnes of CO2 from coal-fired power stations.
