Installed at the site, the Capstone C65 MicroTurbine© combined heat and power (CHP) unit provides both heat and electrical power to the site. A total of 1,050,000 kWh of energy is produced annually, with 370,000 kWe of that being electricity generation and 680,000 kWth being heat generation.
CEO at PWE, Sean Fitzpatrick, says: “We partnered with DEIF (UK) Ltd because of their extensive technical experience and proven expertise in delivering safe and reliable energy control systems bespoke to our customer’s needs. The support we receive from the team and their commitment to continually improve performance and efficiency of the technologies provided will help us maintain and achieve many more."
Faced with the technical aspects involved in both complying with the grid connection requirements and providing an effective Export Limiting System, DEIF was asked to suggest an appropriate solution based on our technical expertise, extensive product range and power systems control experience.
DEIF has provided a solution for export limiting control based on the TAS-331DG—a micro-controller-based, powerful, fast and compact unit that measures the power being drawn from the grid and provides a proportional direct current signal to the installed CHP units.
TAS transducers can be delivered pre-configured to set measuring values and ranges or un-configured for customer configuration using DEIF’s free PC tool. PC configuration makes free adjustment of the full input and output ranges possible without requiring any mechanical adjustments inside the transducer. The TAS-331DG can either be configured as a standard linear transducer or with up to 3 slopes for enhanced resolution in one or two critical ranges of the measurement.
