Piotrków Wind Farm with the first turbine

04/05/2022

The wind farm will produce 90 GWh of electricity per year, which corresponds to the energy demand of about 35,000 households. The investment is located in the municipalities of Wolbórz and Moszczenica in the Piotrków County in Poland. It will consist of 15 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 2 MW. The first of them has just been assembled.

This is how the microgrid works. This is the first such system in Poland (video, audio, photo).

15/03/2022

TAURON has launched a microgrid, i.e. a small power grid that allows to guarantee, even in extreme situations, electricity supplies to consumers connected to it. The system launched in Bytom has wind capacity, photovoltaic panels and a stabilizing system with energy storage and a gas aggregate. It is the first functioning microgrid system in Poland. 

The microgrid launched on the site of the former Szombierki mine consists of two photovoltaic installations, five wind microturbines, gas aggregate, gas unit, energy storage and an innovative transformer station. Moreover, the installation will be equipped with security systems, a monitoring system, lighting and a weather station. Currently, the TAURON microgrid provides electricity to 54 households and covers an area of nine thousand square meters.

The heart of the entire installation is the Microgrid Management System that coordinates the work of all microgrid elements. It is also responsible for maintaining the energy balance and proper electricity parameters during off-grid operation, i.e. outside the power grid. In this way, the Microgrid Management System imitates the operation of the entire power system - with the difference that it is done locally, in the immediate vicinity of the microgrid generating sources.
