The latest state of the art Magellan Australian made Energy Storage System has been
The demand management system was built for TransGrid, the owner and operator of one of
the largest high-voltage transmission networks in Australia.
The system will be used for the utility's i-Demand Project. The project, which is in place at
TransGrid's Western Sydney (Eastern Creek) site, also includes 99 kW of solar panels and
high-efficiency LED lighting.
The Magellan Grid Power Support System utilises 400 kWh lithium polymer batteries. The
advanced bi-directional inverter uses rugged IGBT power circuitry with the latest
microprocessor hardware and software.
Long cycle life of the LiMnNiCoO2 battery combined with the high reliability and rugged
design of Magellan inverters make this energy storage equipment a perfect choice for many
applications including frequency and voltage regulation, peak load management, remote
area power systems, solar smoothing, diesel reduction and many other applications.
This is one of many large containerized Energy Storage Systems, which Magellan has
manufactured for Australian utilities.
Managing Director Masoud Abshar says "our vision and belief in Australian engineering,
innovation and our hard work over the past 5 years in the field of grid support energy storage
is bearing fruit and has placed us at the forefront of the Energy Storage revolution.
The company, based in Bibra Lake WA, also makes residential and commercial versions,
which can be used in homes and businesses.
Magellan thanks TransGrid for putting their trust in Australian innovation, and acknowledges
the role played by Zest Energy in assisting the company in the selection of batteries. Zest
worked closely with Magellan Power, Kokam batteries and the customer (TransGrid)
throughout the process.
