Powercorp was formed in 1988 in Darwin, Australia, to automate the wide variety of diesel generator power stations in Northern Australia for the Power and Water Authority. This program encompassed some 80 communities and work has extended throughout Australia and internationally. With the success of the automation program came the need to integrate renewable energy for fuel saving. This work and the demand side management capability of the control system led to advanced wind diesel systems in Western Australia for Western Power Corporation. With the winning of a Showcase grant from the Federal Government Powercorp pioneered high penetration wind diesel systems during the late 90’s. Powercorp developed expertise in inverter technology with specialization in high speed bi- directional control to solve the grid instability problem. With these solutions now a commercial reality Powercorp stands as the most advanced high penetration renewable energy company in the world. This work is expanding to encompass mine sites and industrial complexes.The company is largely research engineering based with strong capability in electrical network stabilisation and generation plant control. It stands ready to serve any customer with grid instability problems or requiring high penetration renewable energy generation.
