Doosan GridTech Solution
Doosan’s scope of work included the turnkey design, engineering, procurement, factory inspections and testing, delivery to site, construction, start-up, commissioning and testing of all plant and equipment for the BESS.
Over 500,000 lithium-ion battery cells are housed in a climate-controlled building to assure their performance against harsh weather conditions. Other technical project objectives were: 1)Deliver a BESS capable of generating a net 100 MW output at a power factor of 0.93 into the 132kV network at the substation connection point — following the National Electricity Rules (NER) and Generator Performance Standards (GPS); and 2) Assure energy storage discharge capacity of 150 MWh at the connection point and provide reactive power as well as voltage control at the 132kV connection point bus.
The Doosan GridTech Intelligent Controller® (DG-IC®) deploys advanced artificial intelligence to manage the system. It is one of the first battery control platforms built on open standard interfaces and programmed to face the rigid requirements of Australia’s transmission network.
