Sygensys technology helps maintain grid stability during time of rapid change in supply or demand.

The challenges of maintaining grid voltage and frequency in the era of 100% renewables are easy to underestimate. In the past heavy rotating steam driven generators have provide a large amount of inertia . Think how hard it is to change the speed of rotation of a flywheel. This helped keep frequency and voltage stable with rapidly changing loads.

No such inertia naturally exists in solar PV and wind generation where switch mode power supplies are used to convert DC to AC at grid voltage and frequency. Grid operators are working hard to update the grid to handle these new forms of generation and maintain grid stability. At Sygensys we will play our part through optimised use of energy storage systems and demand side response.
