EasyGrid

EasyGrid - Hybrid power units for off grid environments

Our EasyGrid range brings off grid power solutions to homes and businesses without a mains grid connection at a reasonable cost. Rather than having to source separate components and have a bespoke system designed, our EasyGrid series offers a pre-configured, self-contained unit built from durable, high quality components; fully tested and ready to install. The EasyGrid enclosures are made from powder coated steel; allowing them to be installed outside or in an out building depending on requirements. Suitable for installation worldwide the EasyGrid range addresses off grid power needs and can be installed by a competent local electrician.

 

How does it work?

Our EasyGrid hybrid units connect to your solar array, they also have a connection for a generator. The EasyGrid supply utilises energy from the solar array to charge the batteries, where energy will be stored until needed. The array then tops up the batteries as the power is used. The system can also support additional loads to those listed when connected to a generator. In addition, if a generator is connected and the batteries are depleted and no solar power is available, the system will send a start signal to the generator to provide power and charge the batteries.

Connecting a Solar Array to EasyGrid 

Sizing your solar array correctly is vital in getting the most effective renewable energy into your EasyGrid unit. On the datasheets you will find full details on the options available to you and how you can connect solar panels to optimise your power for peak loads.

We are able to supply the necessary solar panel kit, expansion kits, cables and connectors for your project. Please ask for prices and we can include this with your quotation.

 

SOLAR KIT – 1 String (6 Panels)

6 x 265W panels in series gives a maximum open circuit voltage of approx 220V.

 

SOLAR EXPANSION KIT  – 1 String (6 Panels)

Additional strings of 6 x 265W solar panels can be connected via a solar string combiner box.

 

Up to three Solar Expansion Kits can be fitted for a total of 4 strings of 6 (265 W) panels. Giving up to 6.4kW of peak solar power.

 

 

Connecting a Generator

If you are looking at connecting a generator to one of the EasyGrid range we would recommend sizing of a 2kVA – 100kVA (dependent on EasyGrid unit) which will allow you to run additional loads. We are able to supply a generator with your EasyGrid if required. Please ask for prices and we can include this with your quotation.

 

Why use an EasyGrid system rather than a generator alone?

Whilst you can use a stand alone generator to provide your power for an off grid property or project it is a hugely inefficient system. You will spend large amounts on fuel and servicing costs which are often the hidden costs of a new project, with owners often not being aware of the costs they will be incurring.

With a correctly specified EasyGrid system the EasyGrid unit could pay for itself within 12 months of installation compared to a stand alone generator providing your off grid power. And those savings will continue year on year.

Our generator fuel and servicing chart will show you how an EasyGrid system can make significant fuel and servicing savings of between £3,926 and £11,130 per year.

ES EasyGrid Run Time Savings.pdf

 

Connecting to an Unreliable Grid

For our international customers we are able to add an additional connection point for connecting the EasyGrid 5000 and 10,000 units to an unreliable local grid connection. This allows users to make use of grid power when it is available and then to automatically switch to the EasyGrid supply during power cuts. This additional option is viable if you are installing the unit in an area with frequent daily power outages and you require continuous power. Please ask us and we can include this option with your quotation.

 

Monitoring and Control

Victron Color Control

The EasyGrid range incorporates a Victron Color Control as standard. This control gives each EasyGrid a great functionality.

Color Control enables full online monitoring via the Victron VRM website (internet connection required). This shows all relevant parameter and historic data including battery capacity, power usage and solar input along with many other selectable parameters. The owner can also set alarms to ensure that the whole system operates at its optimum performance at all times.  

The Victron Color Control also comes with enhanced generator control, allowing full control and monitoring of your off grid system. Owners will be able to see:

  • Generator state: Indicates why the generator is running.
  • Runtime: Generator runtime since last start.
  • Total run time: Accumulated running time since the first start.
  • Time to next test run: When the test run condition is enabled this item shows the time remaining to the next test run.
  • Daily runtime: Page with the running times of last 30 days.

In addition the generator can be set to run based on the conditions such as AC load and state of charge of batteries to ensure that those living and working off grid are never without power

 

Silent Nights

For those working and living off grid there are additional features the control system offers which can enhance their environment - quiet periods can be set which will reduce the chance of the generator starting - particularly at night.  Most importantly period test runs can be set which ensures that when you need the generator - it will start!

Installation, Warranty and Service

The EasyGrid series is designed to be a plug and play solution for off grid customers. They can be installed by a competent, local electrician. We have a YouTube guide to help them plus each unit is supplied with a straightforward installation guide. For customers who wish us to install and commission an EasyGrid System please speak to us to include it in your quotation.

The unit is covered by our own one year warranty, and the Victron power electronics are covered with a 5 year limited warranty.

Variable Speed Hybrid Power System

Uniquely efficient on board power

By using the combination of variable speed generator with a lithium battery bank and inverter we can help you deliver on board power in the most efficient way currently possible. The final specification of your hybrid power system will depend on your individual vessel’s power loads and requirements, but whatever the size, our Variable Speed Hybrid Power System will save boat builders and owners space, installation time, fuel & servicing costs. At the same time delivering the benefit of silent power and reduced carbon emissions.

Our scalable solution allows power to be delivered from a far smaller footprint than a traditional generator and lead acid battery bank. The generator can be sized for average loads, not peak loads; and the lithium battery option offers far greater power capacity and cyclic life than a lead acid bank of the same size.

Variable Speed Hybrid Power System

Variable Speed Hybrid Power

VariPower - Variable Speed Hybrid Generator

VariPower - Variable speed hybrid power system

VariPower is a variable speed generator combined with a highly efficient battery bank. Developed, designed and built in the UK, the range includes the VariPower 10 and 20. Both provide transportable, instant power for temporary, back-up and off grid situations in any environment.

Unlike traditional generators which only run at one speed whatever the load demands, the variable speed generator is flexible and can run at any level between 900 and 2000 rpms; providing just enough power for the load and to charge/top up the batteries without any waste.

When demands are low the generator will run at just 900 rpm, providing enough power for the load very quietly and using less fuel. For times when a higher load is demanded the generator can move up in speed to anything up to 2000rpm; delivering higher amounts of power, quickly and efficiently.

The batteries within each unit act as an energy storage system; so at times of very low demand, or when completely silent power is required the batteries alone can run the load, the generator doesn’t need to start at all.

The built in intelligence of the system means the VariPower provides power in the most efficient way possible, with this functionality users can operate in the same way as a grid connection, no manual intervention is required.

ES - Marine Isolation Transformers

ES Marine Hull Isolation Transformers    

Hull isolation transformers are the only way to completely eliminate the risk of galvanic corrosion between the ships hull and other metal objects (other ships, pilings etc.).

The problem is caused by an earth loop forming and current flowing through the earth wire on the shore supply. The problems occurs in all boats, although steel & aluminium boats are particularly susceptible. It is important to get advice from a suitably qualified marine surveyor or corrosion specialist before installing shorepower.

The isolation transformer eliminates any electrical continuity between shorepower and the ship. The shorepower is fed to the primary side of the transformer and the ship is connected to the output side (secondary).

Our standard transformer range covers 10, 16, 32, 50, 63 & 100 amp single phase shore capacities at 230v. We offer custom units in single phase, three phase to three phase and three phase to single phase.

In addition to these fixed ratio transformers (normally 1:1) we supply voltage converting transformers. Smaller transformers are offered that will boost 115 volts to 230 volts or visa versa. These are available as manually configured or auto changing.

For USA spec boats we offer a replacement for the Charles Industries Iso-Boost transformer. This has two input voltage ranges at 208 volt and 240 volt nominal to allow a boat to connect to 2 legs of a 208 volt three phase supply in the USA or to a 240 volt split phase supply. The transformer automatically selects the appropriate input. This can also be helpful if your 240 volt supply is weak (for instance if you are at the end of the dock).

Hull Isolation Transformers

USA Spec Boats

Shore power in the USA is available in a number of forms.

For small craft you may be offered a 110 volt hook up. This normally is limited to 30 amps of less (3.3 kW). For smaller craft we offer transformers that can be reconfigured in the following ways - 115/115, 115/230, 230/115, 230/230.

For larger, single phase, boats you are normally offered a 'split phase' supply. This consists of two legs of 120 volts and a neutral (which we don't use). The two legs of 120 volts are 180 degrees apart which, in effect, means that they will give you a 240 volt single phase supply. For these applications we offer transformers with a 'European' output (230 volt live and neutral) and a 'USA' output (two legs of 120 volt and a neutral - also referred to as a 120-0-120 or a 120 / 240 type supply. A 240 volt supply is normally available at either 50 amps (12 kW) or 100 amps (24 kW).

For larger craft still you will be offered a three phase supply. Lower power supplies are available at 208 volts and super yacht berths are offered at 440 volt.

For single phase boats we offer a boosting transformer that will take two legs of 208 and boost to 240 volts. We can also build custom transformers that take a three phase supply and output single phase.

We can also supply 3 phase to 3 phase transformers with the input and output voltages that you require.

 

European Cruising

An isolation transformer can also allow ‘English‘ wired boats to be used on continental shorepower supplies.

Most European countries have a floating neutral where the English system bonds the neutral to earth. This causes polarity problems abroad.

It also means that with single pole switches and circuit breakers there will always be voltage in through the neutral. The hull isolation transformer ‘converts‘ a floating neutral input into an earth bonded output.

The transformer will also ensure that the output polarity is always correct regardless of input polarity.

 

Standard Insulation

The standard transformer is protected by being immersed in a resin bath. This is done under a vacuum to ensure total coverage. This protects the transformer from air borne moisture and normal corrosion.

 

Double Dipped Insulation Option

In addition to the standard insulation the transformer receives a second water proof coating. The take off ends of the coil windings are also sealed to prevent water ingress. This additional insulation is suited to transformers that maybe subjected to water contact.

 

Soft Start

When first connected to the shore supply the hull isolation transformer will draw a very high initial current. This can often trip the shore supply circuit breaker. Energy Solutions are able to install a soft start on the input of the transformer to greatly reduce the inrush current.

Input Configuration

Most of the smaller, single phase, transformer range is offered with a dual wound primary. This allows the transformer to be connected to both 110 volt and 230 volt shore power supplies.

Most three phase transformers are supplied as a Delta input (no neutral connected).


Output Configuration

The output configuration of the transformer can be requested as:

  • 230 volt for European systems
  • 240/120 volt for American systems
  • 208 volts three phase for USA spec boats
  • 400 volts three phase for Europeans spec boats

 

Custom Transformers

Most of the Energy Solutions range of marine isolation transformers have dual input voltages (120 and 240 volt). This is of particular use on long distance cruising boats that may want to use 110 volt supplies in Caribbean, USA Etc.

They also help to protect swimmers against the risk of electrocution. This is a particular risk on fresh water moorings.

Safety for swimmers

Energy Solutions are able to supply specific transformers for individual applications. These may be single or three phase. We have supplied transformers up to 125 KVA.

Energy Solutions - LoadBank

ES LoadBank

Sizing generators for large sailing and motor yachts is a difficult job. Large variations in on board power requirements between different seasons, different times of day, and periods with and without guests make for substantial power requirement swings.

Often, despite the very best engineering practice, the yacht will be operating the generators lightly loaded. To address this problem the Energy Solutions have developed the ES LoadBank to be used with generators that are running lightly loaded. The 2015 model, ES LoadBank v4, combines heater tank, switch gear and expansion tank all in the same enclosure, reducing the footprint required to install the LoadBank. The PLC has also been upgraded which allows direct interfacing with a ship's system for control and monitoring. There is also a remote touchscreen control and monitoring panel, both options give flexibility for new builds and retrofits.

Maximising generator life

In order to get the maximum life expectancy from a generator it should run at sufficient load to ensure clean running. When a generator runs under capacity it's working life is cut short and the generator runs with soot emissions. The ES LoadBank is an advanced generator loading system that ensures that a sufficient base load is applied to the generator at all times. It uses electrical heaters as a load and this heat is released via heat exchangers.

User programmable

The ES LoadBank can be user programmed with generator size and target load. This allows the LoadBank to apply the correct amount of load, per phase, to achieve your target loading.

The LoadBank will work with any brand of generator. Larger requirements can be met by specifying multiple LoadBanks which, via software settings, will work as a master and slave(s) arrangement.

LoadBank Case Study

Already over 20 superyacht generators are running with ES LoadBanks and in Q4 2014 two more superyachts were fitted with units. The first of these was MY Blush and her Chief Engineer, Mark Cryer explains how the LoadBank has proved essential:

"Having now sailed with the product, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. It couldn’t be easier to use. It’s just a matter of selecting whether you want it on, or not, and all the rest is automatic. It works to keep your generator in a healthy load range at all times.”

Energy Solutions - Isolation Transformers

ES Isolation Transformers

Isolation transformers provide galvanic isolation of the input supply from the output. This allows the creation of an electrical system that is independent from the supply. This has applications where power needs to be taken from a building to a vehicle, for example, outside broadcast vehicles, horseboxes, electric vehicle charging points etc.

Isolation transformers are also used to suppress the electrical noise that can occur on the AC supply, this can impact the operation of sensitive electronic equipment (applications such as sound studios, laboratories etc.)

Isolation Transformers

We supply a range of isolation transformers, both our own branded range and from Victron. Available for single and three phase.

ES DockPower

Dual shore cord isolation transformer

The demand for shore power means that larger motor yachts often have dual 32A or even dual 63A shore power sockets. This requires the boat’s internal AC circuitry to be split into two entirely separate groups - normally air conditioning and domestic. But if one circuit tries to pull more than the maximum rating there’s nothing to be done to stop the dockside load circuit breaker tripping, even if the other cord has plenty of capacity left.

The DockPower isolation transformer range from Energy Solutions solves this problem by allowing boat owners to bring two shorepower leads onto a boat and combine them into a single supply to feed all the boat’s loads. The two cords are loaded equally which ensures you get the maximum amount of power on board. Suitable for a range of vessels from large sailing boats to mid-sized motor yachts, DockPower provides an important solution to their specific power requirements.

Designed and manufactured by Energy Solutions, the DockPower range was developed to meet many of the difficulties faced by customers.

ASEA - Power Frequency Converters

ASEA - Power Frequency Converters

Energy Solutions are the sole distributor of ASEA in the UK. Already installed in numerous superyachts and OEM ranges these frequency converters offer unrivalled benefits for vessels of all sizes.

Frequency converters have long been the domain of super yachts only. However the ASEA range brings the advantages of shore power conversion to vessels of all sizes. The ability to plug into any shore power supply world wide now exists, at an affordable price, for smaller yachts as well as the traditional superyacht sector.

The ASEA power frequency converters will accept any input voltage between 180 - 520 volts and any input frequency between 45 - 65 Hz. Some units accept both single and three phase whilst others are dedicated (although a single phase unit is quite happy to use 2 of the 3 phases of a 3 phase supply).

ASEA power frequency converters

The unit is completely automatic; simply plug in and the ASEA Power unit will do the rest. The range of static frequency converters are designed to supply high quality, continuous duty sinusoidal power of a fixed frequency and voltage for stable on board power.

They are quiet in operation and maintenance free. Not only will they provide voltage and frequency conversion, but as an additional benefit they offer galvanic isolation and a high level of filtering from transients, spikes and voltage variations from the marina supply.

The cabinets are a mixture of Stainless Steel and marine grade Aluminium powder coated for a long life, fixings are stainless steel.

ASEA uniquely offer 3 different technologies to aid your installation. Their standard range are air cooled with standard frequency power conversion. The HF range use high frequency switching to allow use of smaller magnetic components. These units offer reduced size and weight and are popular with the sail boat market. Lastly liquid cooled versions are offered. These use chilled water from the vessels AC system to cool the unit via a heat exchanger. This reduces local rejected heat and makes installations in tight compartments much more straight forward.

The front panel features a sophisticated control and monitoring station which can be enhanced with an optional remote touch screen user control.

With units from 8 Kva to 500 Kva we have a system to suit your application.
