With the Hybrid eControl-Box from Solar-Log, the interaction between PV plants and diesel generators in regions with unstable power grids can be better regulated.
The new control Box allows PV plants and diesel motors to work together efficiently.

In many countries, there are regions with unstable power grids. When grid power failures occur in these regions, diesel motors are often used to provide temporary power. When used in combination with a PV plant, the runtime of the diesel motors, CO2 emissions and the consumption of fossil fuels can be reduced to a minimum. The company Sundays Data System (Solar-Log France) developed the Solar-Log Hybrid eControl-Box for this purpose.

The Box allows PV plants and diesel motors to work together efficiently. The diesel motors are used as a backup and for grid control. There are always active with a minimum output.When PV power is available, it has the priority for consumption, for example, at a hotel. At the same time, the diesel generator is running with a minimal output to ensure a stable power supply. When there is not enough PV power available, the diesel generator provides the rest of the power needed.

With this solution from Solar-Log, it is possible to stabilize the grid while ensuring the maximum amount of consumption from PV energy.
