South Burlington based Dynapower, a world leader in power conversion solutions, recent announced that they have executed a technology transfer and licensing agreement to bring Dynapower’s energy storage inverter technology to India and neighboring SAARC countries. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently hailed energy storage of solar energy in India as “[the] next big technological revolution.”
In announcing the agreement, Dynapower and Raychem RPG also announced the commissioning of India’s first 1MW microgrid featuring Dynapower’s CPS-1000 inverter at the Central Electronics Limited (CEL) facility in Sahibadad, Uttar Pradesh, India. CEL manufactures solar-photovoltaic (SPV) cells, modules and systems. The Central Electronics Limited microgrid project is a locally controllable power system composed of distributed generation combining solar and diesel gensets alongside energy storage connected to the main grid power system. The commercial and industrial microgrid can work both in on-grid connected mode for frequency regulation, PV smoothing and peak shaving to curb CEL’s electric bills, and in “islanded” grid forming mode in the case of a grid disturbance. The system features Dynapower’s patented Dynamic Transfer technology which monitors the grid and seamlessly transitions the CEL facility from grid-tied to back up battery power in the event of a grid disturbance.
“We selected Dynapower to partner with because of their global leadership with over 400 MWs of EMS PCS installed,” said Ramani Kasi, President & CEO —Raychem RPG Ltd. “Dynapower’s differentiated technology such as its patented Dynamic Transfer as well as their agile business model, unique positioning in the C&I segment (offering both inverters and fully-integrated systems) as well as their focus on solutions and aggressive growth mindset aligns perfectly with the Raychem RPG business model.”
To date, Dynapower has supplied over 400MWs of energy storage inverters, DC-DC Converters, and fully-integrated energy storage systems worldwide. Dynapower energy storage inverters power the United States’ largest wind plus storage farm in NoTrees, Texas (36MWs), the US’ first utility-scale solar plus storage facility in Rutland, Vermont, the nation’s largest NetZero building in Los Angeles, and have been deployed to help island nations transition to be run on 100% renewable energy. Additionally, Dynapower’s MPS-250 was the first energy storage inverter to receive UL 1741 Smart Inverter designation, and Dynapower was the first to commercially deploy a DC-DC converter for utility scale solar plus storage.
