ICE®CABLE for Grid-tying Renewable Energy Sources

Superconductor ICE®CABLE transmission systems solve a crucial problem of wind and solar park construction or repowering: In case no grid connection point is available nearby, more distant feed-in facilities can be used by deploying an ICE®CABLE system for economical loss free power Transmission.

ICE®CABLE technology is also convenient for energy park layouts that are aimed at the operating reserve market by combining renewable power generation and innovative energy storage Technology.

An ICE®CABLE high-capacity and low-voltage DC network can link up all the facility’s power generating units and energy storage devices while dispensing with costly tie-in converters for each individual system. Instead, a central transformer/converter can be placed at the connecting point to the AC power grid. ICE®CABLE energy park networks feature

  • easy integration of wind power and photovoltaic devices, power-to-gas systems, fuel cells, and battery or flywheel storage systems in a joint electricity network
  • loss-free power transmission to the grid connecting point
  • zero reactive power loss
  • greatly reduced converter losses
  • excellent applicability for energy parks which are capable of providing larger power quantities to the operating reserve market
