Siemens announces Sinacon HC hybrid converter

May 2, 2017 - Sinacon HC is a modular hybrid converter for innovative grids which links different power sources and batteries to the public grid or can be used to create microgrids. The converter cabinet provides scope for feeding into public grids as well as the creation and operation of microgrids, for instance by integrating renewable energy sources such as wind or solar.

This modular hybrid converter concept works in conjunction with different decoupled DC sources. This allows different sources of energy, for instance, to be connected to the grid using just a single converter with different DC and AC terminals. The voltage range from 100 to 1150 Volts (V) DC allows a choice of different batteries to be connected independently of the AC mains voltage level. This makes the converter compatible with all kinds of different batteries, from lithium ion through redox flow batteries or fuel cells. The AC voltage of 620 V allows the creation of standardized solutions. The scope of the converter opens up new business fields, both as a grid support and also for the creation of microgrids through the use of renewables combined with battery storage systems. The common inverter allows new concepts to be implemented and operated, for instance the use of renewable energy sources in combination with grid support, or the implementation of renewable energy in microgrids.

The hybrid converter comes with all the necessary conditions for feeding into medium-voltage grids, and is certified for local power grid standards (such as BDEW, UL1741, TAB HV).
