Ideal Power, a developer of innovative power conversion technologies, introduced the Stabiliti Series, a highly versatile, grid resilient 30-kW advanced power conversion system (PCS). Stabiliti is the next generation of Ideal Power’s patented Power Packet Switching Architecture (PPSA) technology and incorporates numerous new features and benefits for commercial and industrial (C&I) customers. The Stabiliti Series will replace Ideal Power’s legacy 30B3 and IBC-30 product lines and is available in two versions; a two-port AC-DC bi-directional PCS and a multi-port AC-DC-DC bi-directional PCS. Ideal Power is currently taking orders for delivery beginning in February 2017.
Key features of the Stabiliti include built-in galvanic isolation, bi-directional power flows on both DC and AC ports with seamless transfer available between its grid-tied and grid-forming modes, and the ability to be paralleled in microgrid mode, enabling larger installations of multiple units for backup power applications. Stabiliti is software-configurable with power grids around the world in one hardware platform, can integrate multiple sources of generation and storage simultaneously, facilitates EV fast charging with buffer batteries, and enables peak shaving and demand management applications – all in one box.
NEC Energy Solutions will be displaying the new Stabiliti as part of their DSS® exhibit at DistribuTECH 2017 in San Diego, California (Booth #3602) from Tuesday, January 31st to Thursday, February 2nd. NEC recently announced the Stabiliti™ will be integrated with select configurations of NEC Energy Solutions DSS distributed energy storage solution.
“We are pleased to introduce Stabiliti™ to the industry as this is a major evolution in the capabilities we can provide C&I customers,” said Dan Brdar, CEO of Ideal Power. “Stabiliti™ unlocks versatility by enabling end users to perform multiple applications, which increases potential revenue streams. Our Stabiliti™ provides new features including full galvanic isolation, seamless transfer in switching from grid-tied to off-grid modes and paralleled microgrid functionality. Innovation is one of the core traits within our corporate culture and after listening to customers and system integrators, we developed a product line that broadens our addressable market for microgrids, stand-alone energy storage and backup power.”
PPSA is a revolutionary approach to power conversion that uses 100% indirect power flow to deliver a bi-directional, fully isolated conversion while eliminating a majority of the bulky passive components, such as the separate isolation transformer and bulk capacitors, that are used in traditional power conversion systems. Like Ideal Power’s previous generations of 30kW PCS, Stabiliti™ is encased in a NEMA 3R rated outdoor enclosure and is wall-mounted.
