Magellan Power Announced as Semi- finalist in Australian Technologies Competition.

Magellan Power Announced as Semi- finalist in Australian Technologies Competition.

Australian designer and manufacturer of energy storage and back-up power systems Magellan Power, is one of the 36 nationally shortlisted innovators from the sectors of energy, water, manufacturing, food, mining and smart buildings in the Australian Technologies Competition.

The entry submitted by Magellan Power was for its energy storage system consisting of solar panels, a four quadrant inverter, lithium batteries and a battery monitoring system.

The system was designed to correct power quality problems associated with the Single Wire Earth Return transmission system used in regional areas.

The SWER system was deployed after the Second World War and there is currently 200,000 km of SWER lines in Australia and New Zealand.

This transmission system suffers from poor voltage regulation, limited capacity, poor power factor, difficulty to clear down-stream protection and reliability.

The GPSS-SWR can draw power from PV and the connected SWER line, store it into a highly efficient battery bank and use this energy to provide peak power, voltage correction and power factor correction by injecting real and reactive power.

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.
