Power Generation & Energy Storage

OVERVIEW

According to a recent U.S. energy information administration study, large scale battery storage is expected to increase by over 360% between 2020 to 2023. The large addition of energy storage capacity coupled with the Biden administration’s plan for increasing renewable energy production creates an opportunity for companies that support the power generation and energy storage markets. CTM Magnetics serves customers in this market by providing products that reduce overall harmonics and energy loss produced by inverters. Our products increase over all system efficiency by ensuring the maximum amount of energy is being stored from its renewable sources.

How We Help

At the utility-scale, overall system efficiency is critical in solar power generation. CTM liquid cooled technology is an ideal solution for this high efficiency market; CTM liquid cooled products lead the industry in efficiency, with 98% of heat being rejected to the coolant. CTM liquid cooled filters and reactors can utilize almost any coolant, such as water, water/glycol mixtures, refrigerants, even two-phase refrigerants. Additionally, CTM utilizes state-of-the-art, extremely low core loss magnetic materials. This combination of exceptional thermal management and advanced magnetics allows CTM to manufacture the most efficient filter systems available.

Photovoltaic cells produce direct current (DC) electricity; in order to output power to the power grid, grid-tie inverters are required to convert this DC electricity to the AC power on the grid. In order to minimize the amount of losses and harmonic content from the inverter, a CTM liquid cooled grid-tie filter, positioned between the grid connection and DC / AC converter (graphic below), should be utilized to eliminate harmonic distortion and meet the requirements of IEEE 519. CTM grid-tie filters employ the most energy efficient filtering technology on the market; the combination of advanced materials, unique geometry, and superior heat management (liquid cooled technology) allow CTM to boost filter efficiency to unparalleled levels. CTM grid-tie filters increase the performance ratio of the entire photovoltaic system.
