Small electricity generating plants were installed to illuminate individual premises. The Victorian Electric Light Co. was succeeded by the Australian Electric Co. and later by the Melbourne Electric Supply Co. among numerous others. Locally, the first example of the general supply of electricity from a central point was the establishment by the Melbourne City Council of the Spencer Street Power Station from which the streets of the central business district were first illuminated on 7 March 1894. Ironically, the power was generated using boilers fired by coke supplied from the gasworks of the Metropolitan Gas Co.*
Distribution Grid Agreements, Wiring Standards, ambient temperature ratings, IP standards, FCAS, Peak Load Shaving, AEMO, AER, AS4777, AC Coupled, API’s, EMS, BMS. The range of acronyms for the various standards required for a decentralised energy grid is extensive and complex.
The complexity of the energy industry has certainly changed since 1894 but in essence the electricity grid will become what is was once nearly 127 years ago; decentralised and responsive to local needs.
Handling the complexities surrounding Battery Energy Storage Systems requires a specialist approach and simply matching an inverter with a battery simply isn’t as simple as it sounds. The specific requirements, an understanding of the industry, testing and verification and understanding the particular challenges across Australia with varying operating conditions, logistical issues and applications requires a specialist team.
