An energy storage system is a form of media that stores one form of energy to be utilized at another time. This system can absorb or release energy as needed.
Energy storage is an emerging market which is directly tied into several areas that are experiencing wide scale investments including renewable energy (solar, wind, etc.), electric vehicle charging, distributed power and power grid resiliency.
Several considerations need to be made when integrating transformers and energy storage systems. HPS has experience working alongside our customers to review requirements and specifications and we utilize our experienced design team to find a magnetic solution to meet the application needs. Our engineering and manufacturing experience and dedication to quality and service are the foundation for our success. We provide customers with the tools and confidence to make their unique energy storage projects successful.
HPS offers a broad range of distribution transformers that are commonly used in energy storage applications.
HPS Products for Energy Storage
Low Voltage Transformers
HPS offers three phase autotransformers for applications where voltage isolation is not necessary, but some level of voltage adjustment is required. Autotransformers can be used as either a step-up or step-down transformer.
Solar Duty Transformers
HPS Sentinel solar duty transformers are intended for bi-directional use in utility-interactive generation systems where power may flow to or from the grid.
Medium Voltage Transformers
HPS EnduraCoil™ is a high-performance cast resin product designed for many demanding and diverse indoor or outdoor applications. Encapsulated cast resin windings are durable for the most demanding environments typically found in marine, pulp & paper and petrochemical industries.
HPS Millennium™ G medium voltage transformers are rated for 2400 to 4160 volts. They are designed for commercial, industrial, or renewable energy applications. The standard NEMA 3R ventilated construction is ideally suited for indoor or outdoor applications.
HPS Millennium™ E medium voltage transformers have three phase ratings up to 15 MVA, 34.5 kV, 175 kV BIL and single phase to 5 MVA, featuring the newest technology and manufacturing processes. These units can be offered for a variety of indoor and outdoor environmental conditions and are built to meet the most onerous duty requirements.
