European Utility Week 2016
Come visit us from November 15th to 17th at the European Utility Week exhibition in Barcelona and discover our Smart Grid innovations: energy storage and LV grid monitoring. Find us at Booth 3D105.7, French Pavillon.
Every day, guided tours of the French smart grid players take place at 12:00 for Energy storage solutions and at 14:30 for IoT.
The 15th November at 14:10: Socomec invites you for a short conference at the bar of the French Pavillon !
How will IOT make the LV grid safer & more efficient?
Join our webinar on Monday, September 19th 2016 and discover an innovative monitoring system, from a smart MV/LV substation to a digital platform.
NICE GRID project
Socomec awarded by Automazione Italiana
Socomec received “a special tribute for the level of innovation, sustainability and utility reached“ from the Italian magazine “Automazione Italiana”, specialized in software and component for industrial automation.
Socomec was nominated for the energy storage solution deployed within the Nice Grid project. The project, the solution in container on grid and the islanding has been presented to the jury.
The award has been given to Eliseo TISO and Marco DE VICARI, main contributor from the team developing the energy storage solution.
NICE GRID project
Successful islanding for 5h
Pioneering energy storage system successfully supports district isolated from mains electricity for a record 5 hours, without interruption to consumers.
In disconnected or “islanded” mode, clients continue to be supplied via Socomec’s PCS²’s energy storage system and photovoltaic production. The disconnection may be scheduled, in order to reduce load on the main power grid, or unforeseen, due to a power cut.
Socomec’s “network islanding” solution is based on the SUNSYS PCS² power conversion and storage control and command system which manages the disconnection and reconnection of the district to the mains supply.
