Masoud will briefly canvas over the past work done by Magellan and will also offer insights and learnings from past experiences using power electronics in Renewable Energy.
In 2014 Magellan undertook the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of a 100kW/400kWh Energy Storage system for the NSW utility TransGrid.
The solution consisted of a four quadrant inverter and 400kWh of lithium batteries in a 20 foot container. The main function of the equipment is to store a substantial quantity of solar power into the batteries and have them available to support peak power demand and provide back-up for the connected load. In the future it may also be utilised for managing peak demand and improving power quality by injecting real and reactive power into the grid. Masoud will detail the case study, the challenges, why this solution was chosen, and key learnings for other engineers.
Masoud has been the Managing Director of Magellan for 22 years. He holds a Masters Degree in Power Electrical Engineering, is a charted Engineer, is a member of the Advisory Board of Electrical Engineering at Curtin University and is a multiple grant recipient.
The aim of the Emergency and Remote Power Supplies Forum is to provide participants with electrical engineering knowledge and methods that can be then applied in their own workplaces.
