Princeton Power Systems, Inc., a provider of technology products and embedded software for energy management, micro-grid operations, and electric vehicle charging, has been chosen by Bysolar, Inc. to provide a 500kW battery inverter system for frequency regulation and emergency backup power.
According to a release, Bysolar is working in conjunction with Princeton Power Systems and Axion to create a battery system alongside a 575kW solar PV system at an undisclosed facility in northern New Jersey.
"We believe that the application of Princeton Power Systems' grid- tied inverter and battery controller, in combination with Axion Power's Lead Carbon battery technology, provide the most effective battery solution for frequency regulation on the grid," said Alan Cowe, President, Bysolar, Inc. "The ability to handle the repetitive high current charging and discharging in response to PJM's regulating signal, provides a robust capability for frequency regulation and automatic demand response activity."
"When configured for frequency regulation, the Princeton Power Systems 500kW inverter combined with Axion's 300kWh battery creates a revenue-generating backup power system," said Darren Hammell, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder, Princeton Power Systems. "The investment in the system will be repaid within five years while providing the assurance that power will always be available should the grid be impaired."
Bysolar, Inc. is a solar design and installation company.
Axion Power International, Inc. is a provider of energy storage devices.
