A power control apparatus for a distributed power supply interconnected with a power system has been granted a patent (Publication Number: US11929621B2). The apparatus includes a conversion circuit that converts power from DC to AC and a control device that adjusts the power received at a power reception point based on predicted power generation and consumption values. The control device ensures the received power matches the target value by controlling the output of the conversion circuit. Additionally, the apparatus features bidirectional conversion capabilities and can connect to an energy storage apparatus to manage power fluctuations efficiently.

Furthermore, the patent covers a distributed power generating system that incorporates the power control apparatus, distributed power supply, and energy storage apparatus. The system allows for dynamic adjustments in power reception based on predicted power generation and consumption values. It also introduces a control method for the power control apparatus, enabling precise management of power flow between the distributed power supply and the power system. The system's design eliminates the need for a dedicated energy management system (EMS) controller, streamlining the power control process for enhanced efficiency and reliability.
