Our most valuable energy contribution: know-how
As an alternative to fossil fuels, wind energy is getting to be more and more
important. Increased effciency, minimum noise and ultimate dependability
are the decisive competitive factors in this respect. For more than 30 years
RENK has been building gear units, bearings, couplings and test rigs for
wind energy plant. With our accumulated expertise we‘re developing new
drive solutions and with our modern slide bearing technology we‘re
setting new standards with highest power density for On- and Offshore
wind energy plants from 3MW upwards.

inverter programming, provides seamless support for
loads. The system also allows
the operator to request that
the batteries be equalized in
charge and enables the storage system to respond to real
and reactive power commands from the utility, helping the utility test its smart-grid control algorithms.
The intelligent energy stor-
age system along with the dis-
patchable generators create a
high-reliability feeder, which
can detect faults and island
the medium voltage feed-
er, helping to improve service
reliability. Inside the high-reliability zone, a 2.5-mile smart feed-
er system provides reliable power for residential, commercial and
light industrial customers. Additionally, the energy storage system
has suffcient capacity to support the microgrid for several min-
utes, creating a backup power supply.
In 2012, this system was at the forefront of smart grid technologies that are helping build the intelligent DERs of today while continuing to deliver value for the utility’s customers.
Today: Fast-tracking Energy Storage in Southern California
In Southern California, energy storage systems from two different developers totaling about 39.5 MW were built in late 2016
to provide critical grid support and capacity services. The frst,
a 2-MW/8-MWh project in Irvine was part of the Southern California Edison 2016 Aliso Canyon Energy Storage Resources
Adequacy (RA) Only solicitation.
The second 30-MW/120-MWh system was built in Escondido
with a third, 7.5-MW installation in El Cajon.
