Report: Darlington Point Energy Storage System Lessons Learnt Report 1 (PDF 598KB)
This first Lessons Learnt Report addresses key lessons learnt in the connection application process and the approach to design and construction for an advanced inverter plant compared to a traditional grid following plant.
Edify Energy has developed the Darlington Point Energy Storage System (DPESS) which will be a 25MW / 50MWh large scale battery storage (LSBS) system located adjacent to the 275 MW Darlington Point Solar Farm in NSW. DPESS comprises advanced inverters with the ability to provide system strength services to the NSW electricity network. The performance of the plant will be verified through an agreed Testing Plan.
The Testing Plan will be developed in consultation with TransGrid and AEMO and is expected to include a combination of power system studies, commissioning tests, and ongoing performance monitoring. The findings of the Testing Plan and any other key learnings will be disseminated though knowledge sharing outputs.
This first Knowledge Sharing Report is issued at Milestone 2, Delivery of Major Equipment. The report specifically addresses lessons learnt in the connection application process and the approach to design and construction for an advanced inverter plant compared against a traditional grid following plant.
