Smart grid news: Ideal receives orders for power conversion systems

Ideal Power Inc. (NASDAQ: IPWR), a developer of innovative power conversion technologies, is pleased to announce it has received 5 MW of orders for its industry leading 30kW Battery Converter, its Grid Resilient 30kW Multi-Port Power Conversion System and its Grid Resilient 125kW Power Conversion System from multiple channel partners. The units will ship to commercial and industrial (C&I) customers for use in battery energy storage systems for behind-the-meter demand charge management applications.

Ideal Power's 30kW battery converter is widely used by industry leading developers and integrators of battery energy storage systems. Its Grid Resilient 30kW Multi-Port system, which was recently UL listed, allows direct integration of PV and battery storage without the need for a separate inverter, increasing efficiency for multi-port applications. Its Grid Resilient 125kW 2-Port system is designed for large scale applications and can scale to over a megawatt.

Ideal Power's patented Power Packet Switching Architecture™ (PPSA) technology enables power conversion systems that are smaller, lighter, and more efficient, resulting in dramatically lower installed costs compared to conventional systems. Ideal Power has tested its system with battery manufacturers to ensure optimal performance with different battery chemistries. Its grid resilient power conversion systems are capable of forming a microgrid to enable back-up power for critical loads.

"Our systems have seen rapid adoption in the industry for energy storage applications," said Ideal Power CEO Dan Brdar. "States such as California have an immediate and growing need for energy storage where peak demand charges can represent a significant portion of commercial and industrial customers' bills. We've worked with many manufacturers and integrators of systems designed to mitigate these charges, and interest in our technology is accelerating for this and other energy storage applications."
