The World's First Battery Storage & Gas Turbine Hybrid

lm6000-egt-hybrid-download-image

The LM6000 Hybrid EGTTM is a two-part solution involving the installation of a battery energy storage system from Current, powered by GE, followed by upgrades to a GE LM6000 to integrate the two systems.  This first-of-its-kind system will allow the turbine to operate in standby mode without using fuel and enable immediate response to changing energy dispatch needs.

Gas Turbine Upgrades

If you're looking to upgrade your gas turbine, we have a range of options to keep you performing your best.  GAS TURBINE UPGRADES 

Innovative Collaboration

In the wake of California’s Aliso Canyon energy crisis in early 2016, GE’s longtime customer Southern California Edison (SCE) was searching for a flexible and reliable solution to lower emissions while meeting fluctuations in energy demand.

GE’s Power Services and Current businesses developed the LM6000 Hybrid EGTTM system, a first-of-its-kind solution, in a competitive offer in collaboration with Wellhead Power Solutions, LLC.  This two-part solution is scheduled to be deployed at two SCE sites in late 2016 and will ultimately support increasing renewable energy capacity on the California grid.

“GE’s new LM6000 Hybrid EGT product fits well with SCE’s objective of providing cost-effective, innovative solutions that enhance grid reliability, flexibility, and fast response for our customers,” said Phil Herrington, Vice President of Generation for Southern California Edison.

The EGTTM system integrates a 10 MW battery energy storage system from Current and an existing GE LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine with control system upgrades.  The system will allow the turbine to operate in standby mode without using fuel and enable immediate response to changing energy dispatch needs.  By eliminating the need to constantly run the turbines at minimum loads to maintain spinning reserves, the LM6000 Hybrid EGTTM will save fuel, reduce maintenance costs, and cut down on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Product Details:

  • 10 MW Li Power Battery
  • GE Brillaint 1.25 MVA Inverters
  • OpFlex Hybrid Upgrade Package
  • Mark VIe based control system
  • Proprietary control system software that uses the gas turbine to balance the storage system’s state of charge

The LM6000 Hybrid EGTTM system offers ancillary and grid support at a lower cost and smaller greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint than traditional resources, plus it can provide 50 MW of GHG-free spinning reserve, flexible capacity, and peaking energy; 25 MW of high-quality regulation; and 10 MVA of reactive voltage support and primary frequency response when not online.

Upgrade Benefits:

  • 50 MW+ of greenhouse gas free contingency reserve
  • 50 MW+ of flexible capacity
  • 50 MW+ of peaking energy
  • 25 MW of high quality regulation
  • 10 MVA of reactive voltage support and primary frequency response when not online
  • Zero Fuel use and emissions between dispatch events while supporting ancillary services
