South Pole Telescope5 Years Experience In collaboration with several centers of higher education, the University of Chicago chose the Xtreme Power DPR to power the 200-ton South Pole Telescope’s scan cycles without infringing on the station’s life support system. The Telescope requires up to 259,200 cycles/month.
Kodiak Electric CooperativeExpanding Xtreme Power’s Microgrid Experience Kodiak Electric will employ the 3.0 MW DPR to smooth the output of the Pillar Mountain Wind Project, so that the utility can utilize the Terror Lake Hydro facility to manage grid stability and frequency regulation. Additionally, the utilization of the DPR will reduce diesel fuel consumption by allowing a higher penetration of renewable assets.
Microgrid Operators Challenges • Expensive Diesel Operating Costs • Can be >$4/gal in remote locations • High cost and risk of fuel delivery • Few alternatives available • Unstable and Unsecure Grid • Weak electrical distribution system can lead to loss of critical loads • Poor power quality may require purchase of additional electrical equipment • Insufficient response time for diesel generators • Inefficient Use of Grid Resources • Generators operate at reduced output for reliability • Common curtailment and limited integration of renewable generation • Constant cycling of units leads to more frequent O&M and greater fuel consumption Actual Wind Output Without DPR 10
Microgrid Operators: Case Study Microgrid Challenge • Grid Instability Limits Renewable Energy Delivered • 2 MW of solar curtailed down to 1.2 MW • 4.5 MW of wind curtailed down to 2.5 MW • Requires more generation from diesel • Inefficient Diesel Operation Consumes More Fuel • Contingency requirements force generators to operate at low levels • Average loading of generators = ~52% • Spinning reserves cause additional curtailment of renewables 11
Microgrid Operators: Case Study Microgrid Solution • DPR Maximizes Renewable Energy Delivered • Wind and solar farms operate at full nameplate • DPR balances intermittency of renewables and acts as reserves without adding generation • Efficient Asset Utilization Yields High Cost Saving • Average loading of generators = ~70% Decrease Fuel Consumed by > 17% 12
