Cable pooling solar farm Langstraat Zon commissioned
After a 9-month development and testing period, Eneco has agreed to commission the medium-voltage power control system at LangstraatZon in Waalwijk.
The solar farm is built on an old landfill and uses the grid connection from an Eneco wind farm. The power control is set so that the solar farm is immediately regulated back in high winds. In low wind conditions, the entire production capacity of the solar farm is utilized. As a result, the wind and solar farms jointly make optimal use of the limited capacity on the grid.
The control is composed of measuring coils (at medium voltage) and a PLC programmed by ProfiNRG. A dashboard shows real-time solar and wind farm production and allows remote adjustment of power control. “Challenge in this project was the speed and accuracy of measurement and control. We have now mastered that perfectly.” said Project Manager Martijn Feteris of ProfiNRG. A great result so near the end of the year!
Finally, the entire ProfiNRG team wishes you a Merry Christmas!
