Smart Power Plant Controller SPPC

Bachmann electronic has developed a product that offers the required functionality for controlling different energy generators and components combined to form a higher-level power station and also fully meets the requirements of the new VDE-AR-N-4120:2018 and the new VDE-AR-N-4110. An energy park consists of distributed energy resources (DERs) such as wind turbines (WTGs), CHP units, photovoltaic installations (PVs) or battery storage systems, as well as consumers (hybrid farms). These must all be combined and controlled as generation plants by a controller at the point of common coupling (PCC) if the total connected load ratings are ≥135 kW (new VDE guideline from May 2019).

Bachmann has developed a controller as a software module for the M1 that provides all the functions and setpoint definitions required by the guideline for active and reactive power. Besides the controller module, a simulation model is also provided for the PC, which can be integrated in standard simulation software for certifying the customer‘s overall system.

In addition to the actual controller core, the SPPC also features an operational management software which includes a status machine for general functions and controls as well as event handling. Bachmann offers a high-performance CPU as a hardware platform for the park controller, which offers in combination with the GMP232/x grid measurement and protection module an ideal solution for the acquisition of measured values at the grid connection point. Additional modules from the Bachmann hardware portfolio can also be incorporated as required. The modular software structure of the M1 makes it possible to expand this product to suit customer requirements.

Bachmann hosts International Renewable Energy Group IECRE at Austrian Headquarters

The annual meeting of the Renewable Energy Management Centers (REMC) took place November 18-22, 2019 at the Bachmann electronic headquarters in Feldkirch, AT. The overarching goal of the IEC System for Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy (IECRE) is to facilitate international trade in renewable energy, whilst maintaining the highest possible safety levels. At their annual meeting, stakeholders from around the world participated in advancing standardization, certification and continuous improvement in the renewable industry.

Austria is a significant location for the wind energy sector; over 50% of all turbines globally are built using Austrian components, and Bachmann electronic provides controller systems to over 100,000 wind energy plants. This makes Bachmann headquarters an obvious choice for the renewable IEC meeting. The event is a collaboration between OEMs, test labs, component manufacturers, certification bodies, wind park owners and insurers.

Founded in 1906, the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is the world’s leading organization for the preparation and publication of International Standards related to electrotechnologies. Millions of electronic devices rely on IEC International Standards and Conformity Assessment Systems to perform, fit and work safely together. The IEC provides a platform to companies, industries and governments for developing the International Standards required, and the IECRE division focuses on those related to renewable energy.

The purpose of the IECRE meeting is to provide a review of the ongoing working groups, who are currently drafting new standards in renewable energy. 14 countries were represented at the meetings, with coordination from IEC representatives in Geneva. All IEC International Standards are fully consensus-based and represent the needs of key stakeholders from every participating nation. Every member country, no matter its size, has a voice and can influence IEC International Standards.

Bernhard Zangerl, CEO of Bachmann electronic, says, "Industrial companies benefit tremendously from globally certified standards. Not only do they raise industry standards, they also facilitate international trade. We only have to certify our products once, eliminating the need for duplicate evaluations and certifications, thus reducing costs for both consumers and manufacturers.”

IECRE certification standards also make renewable energy production more efficient; “Certification also improves profitability by making the supply of energy from the plant to the grid much more reliable,” says Zangerl, “That in turn lowers the overall cost of energy production, further enabling the global transition to renewables."
