Client TransGrid iDemand
Location Western Sydney, NSW
Date 2014
Equipment Supplied
100kW/400kWh Energy Storage system. 

The demand management system was built for TransGrid, the owner and operator of one of the largest high-voltage transmission networks in Australia.

The system is being used for the utility’s i-Demand project which is in place at TransGrid’s Western Sydney (Eastern Creek) site and also includes 99 kW of solar panels and high-efficiency LED lighting.

The Magellan Grid Power Support System utilises 400 kWh lithium polymer batteries and the advanced bi-directional inverter uses rugged IGBT power circuitry with the latest microprocessor hardware and software.
The long cycle life of the Nickel Manganese Cobalt batteries combined with the high reliability and rugged design of Magellan inverters make this energy storage equipment a perfect choice for many applications including frequency and voltage regulation, peak load management, remote area power systems, solar smoothing, diesel reduction and many other applications.

The equipment is designed for compliance with AS4777 and uses a high reliability four quadrant 3- phase bidirectional inverters to store energy from the grid, or from a renewable energy source, into highly efficient and reliable Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt (LiMnNiCoO2) batteries. The Lithium Polymer Batteries (SLPB) high energy cells feature outstanding energy densities (200Wh/kg) and longevity with deep discharge (80% DOD).

Long cycle life and high reliability of the Nickel Manganese Cobalt cells combined with high reliability and rugged design of Magellan inverters make this energy storage equipment a perfect choice for many applications including frequency and voltage regulation, peak load management, remote area power systems, solar smoothing diesel reduction and many other applications.

Testimonials

Magellan Power has been our supplier of industrial battery chargers for a number of projects which require uninterrupted DC power for high voltage protection, automation and power generation. The customer service is always excellent, and the quality of their products is unparalleled.

Luke Del Paggio | Everett-Smith & Co.

Schneider Electric have used Magellan Chargers for its’ various projects in WA, and Magellan Services have been excellent. Well done Magellan!

Joseph Tjo | Schneider Electric

Magellan has supplied us with UPS for a range of projects and we found their service to be firstly cost effective, secondly the back up support is good and the supplied equipment of a good standard.

Rick Krause | Ergon Energy

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
