ESTA is supporting a Microgrid Development project in Thailand
ESTA International is supporting a Microgrid Development Project in Thailand. The objectives of this project are to improve the reliability and quality of power in the area, replace other types of peaking generation to meet growth in peak demand, reduce power losses in distribution lines, overcome constraints in the development of new transmission lines, support the expansion of Renewable Energy (RE) in the area, reduce Green House Gas (GHG) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and implement Thailand's first Smart Microgrid system. The Microgrid project will have Microgrid controller, battery Energy storage, interface devices, improved protection, as well as related communications. Reliability of the Microgrid system will be enhanced by its interconnection with the utility's distribution network.
