New solar project in Békéscsaba
Hungarian solar industry reaches new milestones
As part of the “Modern Cities” program, Hungary’s first city-owned smart energy system will be installed in Békéscsaba. Ultimately, all sports facilities, like general-purpose sports halls, fencing sports hall and other amenities, will be powered by both solar and geothermal energy.
A 1.3 MWp pv plant will supply the power and all voltage will lead into the grid at 650kVA per inverter. In order to work around sub-optimal weather conditions, the facilities will be supported by a lithium-ion battery energy storage system with 1.2 MW power and 2.4 MWh capacity. 7.61 kWh per battery module will be supplied.
In case of any grid failure, or power outage, the system is programmed to automatically switch to off-grid operation. Once the issue is resolved, the automatic resynchronization process begins to reconnect the microgrid. Through a smart energy management and control system, the plant will be able to optimize itself and minimize cost.
The project is an important step towards a green future with solar energy for Hungary and may serve as a role model for other cities.
