First islanding tests
May 2nd to 4th 2016, a larger group of IREN2 researchers went for first trials within the isolated grid in Wildpoldsried’s Energy Campus. From de-energized state, the so-called blackout, the power grid was “booted” using the vegetable oil generator and thus re- supplied. In conjunction with the load bank and the battery storage first tests for stability of frequency and voltage could be successfully carried out. From blackout, no residents are concerned - the campus grid is unconnected to the local grid.
