This edition showcases projects using grid-forming batteries to provide system stability services traditionally provided by synchronous generation, such as coal or gas.
Transgrid has developed the Wallgrove Grid Battery project to pilot synthetic inertia services, using a grid-scale battery and an advanced inverter to maintain frequency stability on the network. The project also aims to demonstrate an innovative commercial model where, while Transgrid will own and maintain the battery, it will be operated by Iberdrola.
Transgrid’s latest report covers lessons learnt in cyber security, Tesla automation and control implementation, secondary system design, testing and commissioning and more.
