Hybrid power systems are a cleaner and more cost effective way to generate power, with dramatically lower carbon and other hazardous emissions.
Uninterrupted power is extremely important during events or in mining sites and other construction sites. These sites often consume large amounts of power for extended durations, which demands the consumption a large quantity of fuel. The occasional outburst of additional power requirement adds more strain to generators, damaging them. It would be an added benefit to have an added fuel source to generators, which not only acts as a backup, but also improves its efficiency. This is exactly what Green Power Solutions’ hybrid batteries are. Based in Victoria, we have Australia’s most efficient batteries.
Hybrid power is the combination of different sources of power, where one source balances the other. Green Power Solutions has hybrid batteries that combine solar power, diesel or bio diesel with an efficient energy storage system that delivers environmentally friendly hybrid power. Traditional generators lose efficiency when working on low load. They consume 5 times more fuel to supply one-kilowatt hour of energy at lower load levels. Since continuous energy consumption is rare, these generators often end up running on low load, causing higher fuel consumption and lower efficiency.
Hybrid batteries in Green Power Solutions acts as a failsafe to this. Whenever the energy required is low, the battery takes over and supplies the energy, turning off the generator. When the battery runs low on power or when there is a necessity for increased power outputs, the generator automatically turns on. This way the generator does not have to run on low load, saving a lot of fuel in the process.
Some of the advantages that hybrid power systems have are:
On combining a hybrid battery with one of Green Power Solutions biofuel products, customers get uninterrupted and environmentally sustaining power.
Why Hybrid Power?
Hybrid power systems save money, reduce maintenance, make less noise, all while gaining greater efficiency and cleaner air. Everybody wins.
In much the same way as a hybrid car combines the use of a battery and an engine to deliver fuel efficiency and environmental benefits, hybrid power systems can combine solar, a diesel generator with an energy storage system to achieve the same result.
More often than not, incorrectly sized diesel generators are overrated for the job in hand and spend much of their time running but doing very little work. This results in poor fuel economy, under loading and unnecessarily high levels of pollution, carbon emissions and noise pollution.
The graphic shows how a generator’s fuel economy rapidly falls when working at low load. Up to four or five times more fuel is consumed to generate one kilowatt hour of energy at 10% load compared to working at 50% load or above. Because energy is rarely
consumed at a continuous rate, many generators spend most of their time running at very low load.
The introduction of hybrid technology means that, when there is a low demand for power, the generator can be turned off so that just the battery supplies the power. When the battery runs low or demand for power increases then the generator is automatically started. This way, the generator only runs when absolutely necessary, and works efficiently when it does. Even accounting for energy conversion losses (called round trip efficiency) the result is less fuel consumed for the same amount of energy generated.
What is more, the battery can assist the generator during short bursts of high power demand, so a smaller generator can be used.
Adding sustainably sourced and 100% renewable biodiesel into the equation further improves environmental outcomes.
The result is a cleaner and more cost effective way of generating power with dramatically lower carbon and other hazardous emissions, a zero carbon footprint and less noise. Good for the environment, good for business and good for worker health. A win/win/win!
