Smoothing the wind and sun

French company SOCOMEC is showcasing SUNSYS PCS2 at HANNOVER MESSE 2016 – a new solution for the smart integration of energy from photovoltaic systems and wind turbines into electricity grids.

21 Apr. 2016

One of the major challenges posed by the energy revolution is to find a viable way of coordinating the ever-increasing proportion of intermittently available energy from photovoltaic systems and wind turbines with variable demand in consumption. With this task in mind, French company SOCOMEC has launched the SUNSYS PCS2 system for converting and storing renewably sourced energy in a way that evens out these peaks and troughs.

But SUNSYS PCS2 offers more than that – and SOCOMEC’s appearance at HANNOVER MESSE 2016 reveals it to be one of the first manufacturers to supply multiple applications in a single device for smart electricity grids. After all, the SUNSYS PCS2 not only smooths the peaks and troughs between the available energy and demand in the grid, but also optimizes self-consumption in smart grids and meets islanding requirements. Its evolutionary "hot swap" scalable system covers an extremely wide power range – from a few kW up to several MW – and can be extended by adding different parallel units. The SUNSYS PCS2 can be set up in a mixed configuration with the SOCOMEC PV inverter and different battery technologies, depending on the applications required. What’s more, configuration is a quick and simple task.
