Tallaght Smart Grid – Maxwell Ultracapacitors’ Frequency Response

Tallaght Smart Grid – Maxwell Ultracapacitors Providing Fast Frequency Response

Ireland intends to achieve 40 percent renewable energy by 2020. Most of this electricity comes from large-scale wind farms with only limited connection to the UK. FREQCON deployed Ireland’s first combined ultracapacitor & energy storage facility for the Tallaght Smart Grid Testbed in South Dublin County. The 300 kW / 150 kWh system was developed to demonstrate that a combination of lithium-ion batteries, Maxwell Technologies ultracapacitors, and FREQCON power converters can provide fast frequency response to enable high renewables penetration.
