Power Management Controller
Control unit for active and reactive power flows management in small, medium-sized and large storage plants
The Power Management Controller by Santerno is a turnkey solution for the implementation of advanced power control functions, such as peak shaving and load shifting in plants integrating even hybrid generators.
The product, installed in the point of interconnection of the plant to the grid, allows dynamically regulating the active power and the reactive power according to user-settable criteria, allowing automatic control of communications with all the power generators in the plant. The control modes of the active power include peak shaving, load shifting and frequency response. The control modes of the reactive power include automatic grid voltage adjustment and reactive power or power factor setpoints tracking.
The product integrates a control unit, a touchscreen display, devices for digital I/O management, and a digital power meter that can be interfaced with external voltage sensors and current sensors. The integrated meter may also be connected directly to external meters, if installed. All the devices above are integrated into a compact enclosure for the easiest installation.
The Ethernet connectivity, the interactive graphical interface and the possibility of accessing all data and parameters both locally and remotely reduce configuration times at startup to a minimum and make the Power Management Controller the ultimate device for the control and monitoring of any storage plant operation.
