The first city-owned smart grid project features battery storage in Hungary
AEG Power Solutions announced its involvement in Hungary’s first city-owned smart grid project to feature 1.2MW / 2.4MWh of battery storage, which will supply power to sports facilities in Békéscsaba.
The battery system will be built on 7.61kWh modules in a fire protection rack that will be connected to the grid through two Convert SC Flex converters with a power rating of 600kVA. AEG will also provide 650kVa inverters to connect to the DC output of solar panels.
Should any grid failure occur, systems will switch to off-grid operation and supply electricity directly from the solar plant and energy storage to the sports facilities. This will guarantee continued operation of the grid.
