Primary, Secondary & Tertiary Balancing Power Operation

INNIO's* Jenbacher* gas engines meet all the demands of balancing services. They are ideally suited to the efficient provision of balancing services, making a significant contribution to grid stabilization.

What can this upgrade do for you?

  • Flexible remote feed-in power management.
  • Balancing output and consumption for a stabilized power grid.
  • Activation of power reserves within seconds and minutes to ensure a stable power grid.

How we get you there?

The balancing power operation upgrade can be applied at any time and fulfills remote feed-in power management requirements of local grid operators.

Types of balancing power:

Primary balancing service—can be activated within seconds, in proportion to the frequency deviation and covers spontaneous fluctuations in the power grid.

Secondary balancing service—can counterbalance prolonged fluctuations. This reserve power must be completely fed into the grid within five minutes.

Tertiary balancing service—must be fully available within 15 minutes and compensates for fluctuations in power demand  until a stable supply has been restored.

Typical engine upgrade scope:

  • Control software modification
  • OEM documentation update

Make sure this upgrade is compatible with your engine:

  • Enhance Operational Flexibility
  • Increase Uptime
