Electric Power (271)

Overview

The Cat® PGS Module is a scalable, rapidly deployable energy storage system. The PGS integrates with solar or other renewable sources to provide short duration power when the renewable source is not available or virtual spinning reserve to optimize generator sets efficiency. This system provides temporary backup power to facilities in the event of a power outage.

Reliable and Scalable
  • Pre-engineered containers shipped as a single unit that can be quickly installed on site
  • Multiple modules operate in parallel for increased capacity
Renewable Integration
  • Designed to work with an array of renewable systems, including solar and wind
  • Integration with Cat Microgrid Master Controller (MMC) increases renewable penetration
Grid Stabilization
  • Protects against many of the common power problems, including power failure, voltage sags/surges, and under/over voltage conditions
Inverters
  • Intelligent controls for the charging and discharging of the energy storage equipment
  • Static VAR compensator
  • Full four-quadrant output power factor control
  • Automatic anti-islanding
  • Grid forming
  • Parallel-ready - multiple modules may be used in parallel to increase total output
