Dynapower’s Black Start Technology for Microgrids

Islanded operation, or operation in the the absence of grid connection, is a primary application of energy storage systems. In the case of a microgrid, the ability to island enables energy storage to provide backup power, increasing resilience and reliability of the microgrid.

In the event a microgrid were to be de-energized due to a grid outage, or enter a “black out” state, Dynapower has developed a simple and reliable approach to black starting or “restarting” the microgid’s energy storage inverters.

Energy Storage Microgrids: What You Need to Know

An increased focus on grid resiliency along with the proliferation of Distributed Energy Resources (DER)—such as solar and wind—has made microgrids a very attractive alternative to the traditional centralized grid system. Before diving in deeper, though, let’s take a look at what differentiates microgrids from the traditional grid system.

Essentially, microgrids are small collections of loads controlled locally by a limited number of DERs, as opposed to large centralized power systems—which are operated and controlled from a centralized authority. Large centralized power systems maintain system stability through top down control and the aggregated inertia of the system.
