Generator circuit-breaker solutions for emerging renewable energy to support grid reliability
With the rise in renewables, maintaining grid stability is a challenge. The introduction of new grid code has led to grid expansion and hybrid power generation is being adopted as possible solution. Some examples of hybrid generation are synchronous compensator and pumped storage applications, that support the grid in maintaining stability. Generator circuit-breakers play a key role in maintaining availability, safety and flexibility in these type of power plants all around the globe.
