Vikram Solar commisions 100KW solar minigrid system

Vikram Solar has commissioned a 100-KW solar minigrid system in Bahal, Haryana. The minigrid will help power six residential blocks, consisting of 35 households in the village. These households have been connected at load end with auto changeover.
The intelligent minigrid system has used state-of-the -art equipment including crystalline solar PV modules manufactured by Vikram Solar and inverters by SMA (Sunny Boy). One set of off-grid inverters charges a set of batteries during the daytime. These batteries create a “DC Bus” inside the control room. Another set of string inverters, which are installed in the PV yard, sense this dummy grid and synchronise. The total power is now made available through the dedicated grid to the consumers. Again, during the night, the consumer load is fed by the off-grid inverters with batteries acting as a backup. Intelligent sensing options both at the power generating source end as well as the at the consumer end manage the load variation and help in keeping the system balanced all the time. 
Gyanesh Chaudhary, Managing Director, Vikram Solar, stated, “Decentralised renewable energy solutions like solar-powered intelligent minigrid systems can be powerful game changers in the remote and rural areas of India. This will not only support the Rural Energy Mission but also do away with the 20 per cent T&D losses which is generally experienced by huge transmission and distribution network.”
