  • FIMER has teamed up with the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TSE) listed smart energy conglomerate Tatung (Tatung: 2371) to supply battery energy storage systems (BESS) for the Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) automatic frequency control (AFC) initiative.
  • FIMER will supply its PVS980-58BC bi-directional converter to stabilize the grid exposed to the intermittent nature of renewable energies.
  • FIMER's UL 1741-certified PVS980-58BC bidirectional converter meets the requirements of the UL 9540 Energy Storage System (ESS) and has been subjected to a rigorous stress test procedure in its laboratories Finland and Italy before use.

TAIPEI, May 25, 2021 / PRNewswire / – As Taiwan accelerates the introduction of renewable energies, Taipower, an electricity company from Taiwan Main and offshore islandsis set to start Asia First initiative for automatic frequency control (AFC) through the use of battery energy storage systems (BESS). The initiative was compared to a “virtual power plant” that not only significantly reduces CO2 emissions, but also generates 15 MW (megawatts) of electricity per second and offers frequency control that is three to five times faster than that of a large generator more stability too Taiwan Power supply.

FIMER's PVS980-58BC installed here at Tatung's home appliance factory will help stabilize Taiwan's grid, which is exposed to the temporary nature of renewable energy.

In cooperation with the smart energy conglomerate Tatung (Tatung: 2371) listed on the TSE, the Italian solar inverter manufacturer FIMER was selected to offer its BESS solution, with which the power grid can take account of fluctuations due to the generation of renewable energies.

While renewable energies such as solar and wind energy significantly reduce CO2 emissions, the final total output is often subject to different natural conditions such as weather. In order to cope with the widespread use of variable renewable energies, the PVS980-58BC from FIMER helps to increase grid flexibility and improve the integration of renewable resources.

It will play an important role in stabilizing the grid to minimize energy Fluctuations. On When the PVS980-58BC receives a command from the energy management system (EMS) in the event of an unplanned generator failure, it minimizes power interruptions by fully charging and discharging the energy within 20 milliseconds (ms) of the transmission time.

“We are honored to be working with Tatung to deliver our energy storage solutions in various locations Taiwan as part of Taipower's initiative. The FIMER UL 1741 certified bidirectional PVS980-58BC converter meets the requirements of the UL 9540 energy storage system (ESS) and has been subjected to a strict stress test procedure in our laboratories Finland and Italy before use. It is Developed to operate supply-scale projects safely and reliably even under the toughest weather conditions. if in freezing temperatures or in extreme heat, “said FIMER Taiwan CEO Vincent Wu.

“We pride ourselves on offering high quality bi-directional converters (Power conversion system, PCS) to improve Taipower's AFC initiative and help customers comply with the latest major regulations for electricity consumers. With Taiwan FIMER is ready to help the market achieve its goal of generating 20% ​​of its domestic electricity from renewable energies by 2025. ”

¹ UL 1741 refers to the standard for inverters, converters, controls and interconnection systems for use with distributed energy resources
