Keeping Substations Under Control
All substations equipped, by design, with back up lead acid batteries, open all circuit breakers upon sensing power loss and hold them for up to 8 hours. In cases where the outage is prolonged, GenCell’s G5rx keeps the substation operational up to 10 times longer than comparable standard battery rooms, until the grid re-charges and recovers.
From scheduled power outages to black start, the GenCell G5rx offers an instantaneous injection of power generation. Fully certified, the GenCell G5rx has been rigorously tested by our customers in Europe and North America, delivering flawless commercial performance.
Suited for use in power and utility markets, electric and integrated power providers choose GenCell’s reliable long-term backup platform that produces 5kW of auxiliary power for substations and power plants.
For remote performance monitoring and management of the system, the G5rx comes with an innovative Network Operations Center system that provides users with a real-time overview of the unit’s status, allows for instant recovery of critical assets while at the same time provides the current capability status of each individual substation.
In addition, GenCell’s unique energy management software allows for the bundling of multiple units per island, generating an integrated frequency reference that supports a black start corridor process. This elegant restoration process eliminates the need for standby diesel generators.
