Grid Forming vs Grid Following Battery Systems
- Sep 18, 2021 1:19 am GMT
AGL to build the world’s biggest “grid forming” battery at Torrens Island, South Australia. The most significant part of this battery is that after an initial stage operating in “grid following mode”, the Torrens Island battery will also include technology that will enable it to operate in “grid forming” mode, making it the largest of its type in the world. The use of “grid forming” inverters are considered crucial in the transition from conventional “baseload” and “synchronous” generation.
