세계 경제발전의 역사와 함께해 온 전기!
삶을 편리하게 만들어주는 주요 에너지로 지역사회를 연결시켜주고,
기술혁신을 이끌며, 현대사회에서 생명줄과 같은 역할을 하고 있습니다.

최근, 전기를 생산하고 소비하는 방식이 다양해지면서,
전기를 전송해주는 전력망 시스템도 변화하기 시작했습니다.

두산중공업은 에너지 산업의 변화에 대응할 수 있는
혁신적인 기술 솔루션을 제공하며, 고객과 함께 새로운 시장을 열어갑니다.

에너지 산업의 변화, 그 중심에 두산중공업이 있습니다.
변화의 배경 / 해결 방안

전통적인 에너지 산업은 중앙 집중형 발전소에서 생산되는 전력을
소비자에게 일방적으로 전달하는 단방향 방식으로만 운영되어 왔습니다.

그러나 최근 10년 사이, 환경 문제에 대한 관심이 증가하면서
지속 가능한 환경 구축을 위한 기술의 중요성이 부각되었고,

태양광, 풍력과 같은 신재생 에너지원을 활용한
분산형 발전 방식이 주목을 받기 시작했습니다.

하지만 신재생 에너지원은 계절, 날씨 등의 환경적 요인에 따라
전력 생산량이 크게 변동합니다.

이러한 신재생 에너지원의 특성은
발전사업자가 품질 좋은 전력을 안정적으로 공급하는 것을 방해하고
에너지 프로슈머가 효율적으로 전력을 생산하고 소비하는 것도 방해합니다.

이렇듯 기존의 전력망 시스템은 신재생 에너지원을 고려하여 설계된 것이 아니기 때문에,
발전사업자와 에너지 프로슈머는 안정적, 효율적으로 전력을 생산하고 소비하기 위한
다양한 노력이 필요합니다.

Interview 1:
발전사업자는 최근 어려운 도전에 직면하고 있습니다. 사회가 태양광, 풍력과 같은 신재생 에너지원을 전력망에 점점 더 많이 도입하기를 기대하고 있기 때문입니다. 따라서, 발전사업자는
기존 전력망에 지능형 전력망, 전력망 통합, ESS 등 모든 것이 합쳐진 새로운 전략을 필요로 합니다.

배터리는 발전사업자와 에너지 프로슈머에게 유용한 솔루션입니다.
하지만 에너지 저장 장치, ESS의 하드웨어인 배터리만으로는
한층 복잡해지고 있는 에너지 산업의 변화를 해결할 수 없습니다.

두산중공업은 분산형 전원과 기존 전력망 시스템의 통합을 최적화하고,
전력이 안정적, 효율적으로 운용되도록, ESS와 분산형 전원에 플랫폼 기반의
제어 시스템 소프트웨어 기술을 제공하고 있습니다.

이같은 기술로 ESS와 다양한 분산형 전원의 통합, 관리, 제어가 가능해지면서,
발전사업자는 더 많은 분산형 전원을 활용할 수 있게 되었으며,
에너지 프로슈머는 전력을 보다 효율적으로 생산하고 소비할 수 있게 되었습니다.

에너지 기술의 혁신, 두산중공업이 주도하고 있습니다.

Advancement of electricity alongside the growing world economy!
Electricity is the energy that makes our life easier, connects our communities
and propels technological innovation. It is the lifeline of our modern world.

Recently, many different methods of generating and using electricity have come up
d accordingly, the grid system that delivers it has also begun to change.

Doosan is embarking on an initiative to open new markets with its customers
to deliver innovative technology-based solutions that can cope with changes
in the energy industry.

Doosan, always at the center of change in the energy sector.

Conventional grids have been designed for one-way electric power flow,
where power flows from centralized generation stations to the customers.

However, the growing interest in environmental issues over the past decade
has made it clear that technology plays a great role in building a sustainable environment.

Accordingly, the concept of distributed generation using renewable
energy resources including solar power and wind power has emerged.

Due to the intermittency of renewable energy resources,
electric power output fluctuates, depending on the time of the day, season and weather.

The nature of renewables is a challenge for electric utilities to maintain a steady supply of high quality electric power, and energy prosumers faced with difficulties to efficiently produce and consume electric power.

Likewise, since the existing electric grid was not originally designed to incorporate
renewable energy into the grid, electric utilities and energy prosumers
are constantly challenged to produce and consume electric power more stably
and efficiently.

Interview 1:
Daniel Schwartz, Ph. D Utilities have a tough challenge that they’re facing. Because society is expecting more renewables like solar and wind on the grid. They’re current grid needs new strategies, like smart grid, grid integration, battery storage, all coming together at once.

Batteries provide an ideal solution for utilities and energy prosumers. However, the battery alone, a hardware component of an ESS, cannot tackle all the issues resulting from the increasingly complex energy sector as it undergoes a great deal of change.

In this sense, Doosan enables an optimized integration of distributed generation
to the existing electric grid, and in order to manage electric power steadily and efficiently,
the company provides ESS and distributed generation control system software technology.

Such technology enables the integration, management, and control of ESS and various types of distributed generation, allowing electric utilities to embrace more distributed energy resources and energy prosumers to produce and consume electric power more efficiently.

Doosan, a leading innovator of energy technology.

Doosan Group was founded in 1896. Its subsidiary Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, has been serving its worldwide customers over the past 40 years by delivering power plant solutions that include coal-fired power plants and nuclear power plants.

In 2016, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction acquired 1Energy Systems,
a company that obtains proprietary technology in ESS control system software,
and established Doosan GridTech.

With this acquisition, Doosan secures unparalleled control system software technology
in the ESS sector and obtains hardware and control system software integration
capabilities, as well as the experience and know-how of executing EPC turnkey projects.

At the same time, this acquisition allows Doosan to position itself as a leading player
in Korea’s ESS market delivering EPC turn-key services for ESS projects.

Doosan’s Intelligent Controller software is installed with batteries, based in the existing
electric grid, utility-owned distributed energy resources, or factories and commercial buildings owned by energy prosumers, implementing real-time optimization and automatic control of the ESS.

Complementing the Intelligent Controller software is DERO,
which runs in locations such as electric utility’s control room, and
extracts maximum economic value from various types of distributed generation and ESS.

Both software products are platform-based and built on open standards to
ensure interoperability with the currently deployed software and other types of hardware.

The works start from design services
(modeling and function optimization of ESS and microgrid),

system integration of the software and hardware, to delivering EPC turnkey
services that include procurement/ installation/ commissioning/ maintenance.

Backed by its’ competitive software, Doosan works across the entire ESS
and microgrid value chain to provide total solutions.

Doosan opens new markets with its customers

Doosan conducts its business activities, centered in the Korean and the U.S. market!
The company has deployed various battery types including lithium-ion and vanadium redox flow batteries to successfully deliver a wide range of projects with the capacity of 0.5MW up to 20MW.

In 2015, the company supplied ESS at the headquarters of Korea Power Exchange, boasting the largest capacity among all ESSs installed in a single building in Korea.

Snohomish PUD, located in Everett Washington,
is the 12th largest public electric utility in the United States with over 300,000 customers.

Interview 2:
Jason Zyskowski: We’re here at Hardeson Substation where we have installed two megawatts of lithium ion batteries, we’re working on a second installation in North Everett that’ll be another 2 megawatts, 8 megawatt hours of vanadium redox flow batteries. Both these systems are controlled by the Doosan GridTech Intelligent Controller™ and then can be remotely controlled by the Doosan GridTech DERO™ product.

Interview 3:
Chris Heimgartner We have a fleet of storage that’s around our system that can serve both local and global network needs. It self optimizes without a human intervening.

Doosan shapes the future of the energy industry
Vision

The ESS and microgrid market is expected to show explosive growth of 20%
or more over the next 10 years.

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction’s short-term objective is Korean and the U.S. market where strong growth is expected, and will expand into Southeast Asia and Europe over the long term.

Based on its’ proprietary technology in ESS and microgrid control system software,
Doosan delivers maximum value to its customers.
The company is strongly determined to offer innovative technology solutions in the years to come.
