Ausar Energy designs and produces two technical solutions to exploit the potential of renewable energies in the energy mix and to develop decentralized production: one solution for isolated sites off the grid, and one to support the grid on the sites located at the end of the grid.
Hybrid solar power plant with storage capacity for remote sites
Ausar Energy uses a proprietary technology to contribute to the energy autonomy of isolated sites for a competitive cost per kWh and without connection to the grid. The sites can benefit from continuous access to electricity thanks to an innovating Energy Management System and a robust architecture specifically designed and produced to meet the conditions of African environments. Our hybrid solar power plants are built with power modules of 80kW which can add up without limit to reach the production of a few MW. The architecture of the Ausar Energy power plant enables simultaneous coupling AC and DC. This option allows the optimization of the LCOE according to the different charging profiles. In order to get the most efficient solution in the long run, the storage facility is adapted to the client’s needs. To take into account the conditions of use, power plants maintenance has been carefully thought (HCI focused on the user, power plant automation, remote supervision).
Solar power plant with storage capacity to support the grid
The solar power plant developed by Ausar Energy can support the grid to strengthen the service provided to the sites located at the end of the grid or to the ones far from the production unites. Thanks to the solar power plants, the grid manager can offer an optimal quality of service while avoiding expensive investments in the reinforcement of the transportation system or in the power generators. To offset the instability of solar energy, the storage capacity allows the complete control of the ups and downs of load in order to ensure the stability of the grid. This storage capacity is key to meet the consumption peaks (morning, noon, evening). When baking up the grid, our power plant works in the 4 quadrants: it can provide and absorb the reactive power, at all operating points in reactive power. Moreover, the power plant allows to the manager to plan ahead –ideally on D-1- the production of the different units to ensure the stability of the grid and to produce the amount of electricity expected.
