Ancillary Frequency Control System Based on BESS and SATEC IEC 61850 Meter

SATEC’s IEC 61850 PRO meter to be implemented in Taiwan BESS frequency control system

With Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) becoming an important component in the modern electric network, Taipower sought to employ BESS as a solution for balancing distribution networks’ supply and demand, indicated by rising and falling frequency. Basing the solution on an IEC 61850 platform and requirements for fast frequency polling/sampling and response, Hsiang Cheng Engineering (HCE) introduced SATEC’s PM335 PRO meter as a unique building block, answering and exceeding all requirements.
