Fuel Cell Power Conversion System with Utility Grid Interface
This new PowerGate Power Conversion System with GridLink Utility Grid Interface is for fuel cell distributed power
This PowerGate Power Conversion System with GridLink Utility Grid Interface is for fuel cell distributed power generation systems. The interface allows fuel cells to operate just like "plug-in" appliances and will enable them to operate in a grid-independent or grid-parallel mode. The interface will be available as part of the power conversion systems, which are designed to handle load requirements up to 50kW.

The system, including the interface and a MicroGrid controller, convert low voltage DC power from fuel cells into useable AC power. The system is modular and multiple units can be "stacked" to handle higher load requirements. It can also operate with microturbines, generators and other distributed power generation systems.
