Efficient teamwork Intelligent energy management with diesel plus photovoltaics The photovoltaic hybrid system is an intelligent energy management system which is considerably more efficient than a diesel system. At the core is a monitoring and control unit which continuously monitors electricity consumption and adjusts the power production of the various generators accordingly. The intelligent system ensures that there is a hierarchy in power production. Cost-effective solar power is integrated into the network as a priority. Electricity production costs are optimised as the system always allows the diesel generators to run in the most efficient rotation speed. At the same time it is guaranteed that production will meet consumption.

Reliable, continuous and stable power supply The diesel-run generators always have a capacity reserve and offset fluctuations in photovoltaic power production. If there is long-term insufficient solar coverage, the monitoring and control unit switches on further diesel generators and continues to ensure that all diesel generator sets work at optimum efficiency. In any event, a stable grid and a reliable, cost-effective energy supply is guaranteed. Increase your competitiveness with solar power Photovoltaic systems have seen considerable cost reductions in recent years, whereby solar power is already cheaper than conventional electricity in many places. The modules are extremely low in maintenance and generally supply energy reliably for more than 20 years. The investment pays itself off within a few years. Afterwards you produce your solar power at almost no costs. Good to know The integration of other renewable energy sources can counteract any weather-related fluctuations in photovoltaic power production. Electricity generation is harmonised. Modular expansionable photovoltaic power plant Even major industrial consumers can be supplied with cost-efficient solar power because the output of photovoltaic systems can be designed up to the megawatt scale. A major advantage is that the capacity of the photovoltaic power plant can be easily expanded if energy demand increases. 5
