The hatchery already had a diesel generator power system, consisting of 1 250 KVA and 2 125 KVA generators. With the assistance of local PV installer, Sun Photonics, had installed another two sites of photovoltaic panels, one site of 200kw and one site of 100kw. ComAp’s InteliSys NTC Hybrid controller was used to make the two power generation systems work together to form a hybrid microgrid.
The customer was facing issues with the PV and diesel systems working together and having to operate the system manually due to the fluctuating energy demands of the hatchery. By using ComAp’s Hybrid system the power generation for the hatchery is now fully automatic, with controlled power generation from the solar panels, allowing significant diesel, and therefore, financial savings
