It is a system that allows the hybridization of wind farms with photovoltaic plants and energy storage systems in batteries.
The first units are in the certification process and will be installed in Spain to hybridize two wind farms with two photovoltaic plants.

Ingeteam has designed and manufactured the first units of its new control system for hybridising renewable energy plants with different generation technologies. This new system, which is currently under certification process in accordance with the Spanish NTS standard, will soon be installed in the province of Cuenca to hybridise two wind farms with two photovoltaic plants, which will in turn be equipped with Ingeteam photovoltaic inverters.

This new solution, called INGECON SUN Multi-Plant Controller, is designed to help the Grid Operator to manage the operation of several generation plants simultaneously, guaranteeing the stability and control of the electricity supply of the renewable hub at the point of connection. It has an advanced control algorithm that runs at a speed that allows it to comply with the most demanding Grid Codes in the world, including a damping capacity for voltage oscillations and can also monitor all the hub information through a SCADA.
