Today, 1.3 billion people in the world do not have access to energy

  • These populations, suffer from poor health, social and economic development conditions whilst paying a large part of their revenue for a harmful and polluting energy. As the global specialist in energy management Schneider Electric provides solutions to develop reliable, affordable and clean energy for your community

Solutions

Large hybrid off-grid or microgrid systems offer a more sustainable and affordable AC power solution when compared to power supplied only from a diesel generator. ConextTM XW+ can be combined with diesel generators into a hybrid off-grid system increasing the flexibility and reliability of the entire system while still reducing dependence on the ever increasing cost of diesel fuel. ConextTM XW+ in a three phase (230/400 V) system scales up to 76 kW (IEC) / 61 kW (UL) in a multi-cluster architecture. The ConextTM AC Combiner Box manages the AC bus line integrating ConextTM XW+ with diesel generators in a hybrid system. Batteries, along with AC and DC coupled solar PV can be added as needed to support the required autonomy. ConextTM XW+ uses the diesel generator as a backup up source for charging to extend autonomy. ConextTM ComBox provides system control and monitoring. ConextTM solutions includes:
  • Multi-cluster architecture to 76 kW (IEC) / 61 kW (UL)
  • Scalable battery storage
  • Hybrid integration of diesel generators
  • CouplingPower - AC or DC couple with PV power
  • Remote system monitoring and configuration
