Ingeteam commissions the first hybrid plant in Brazil to be connected to the public grid, combining PV energy and battery storage system.

The power generated by the rooftop PV panels is stored in a sodium battery bank controlled by the Ingeteam battery inverter. The whole system is managed by the Battery System Controller developed by Ingrid.

The grid-tied system incorporates a battery inverter to operate in self-consumption mode. Therefore, the priority is to keep the batteries charged with the energy sourced from the PV plant. In this way, during a grid outage, the system can move to off-grid mode in less than 20 milliseconds, using the batteries to provide the necessary power.
