Megawatt-scale, Stand-alone PV-Diesel Hybrid Mini-Grid System for Remote Communities in Malaysia
LEONICS designed, supplied and commissioned two Megawatt-scale, stand-alone PV-Diesel hybrid mini-grid systems in Malaysia in November 2012. These systems represent the first two of a total of four hybrid systems that LEONICS has been contracted to supply in Malaysia.
1) Location: Kemar, Gerik District, Perak Province, Peninsular Malaysia
System Specifics: This 3.3 MW hybrid system consists of: three 200 kW Bi-directional battery inverters with AC coupling; 250 kW Grid Connected Inverters; DC coupling with nineMPPT Charge Controllers for 600 kWp of PV panels; 4.8 MWh of Battery Storage; and 1.6 MW of Diesel Generators. The system is also outfitted with Leonics' proprietary and highly innovative Solar Fuel Saver controller, which optimizes power extraction from the PV panels. With an estimated annual generating capacity from PV panels of 1.28 GWh, the system is capable of supplying electrical power to four villages, approximately 400 families, one school, one medical clinic and government offices via a five-kilometer distribution network.
2) Location: Tanjung Labian, Lahad Datu Township, Sabah State, East Malaysia
System Specifics: This 4.2 MW hybrid system consists of: three 300 kW Bi-directional battery Inverters with AC coupling, three 250 kW Grid Connected Inverters and DC coupling. The system has also been outfitted with 4.32 MWh of battery storage and 1.35 MW of Diesel Generators, as well as Leonics' Solar Fuel Saver controller and nine MPPT Charge Controller for a total of 512 kWp of PV panels. The PV system has an estimated annual generating capacity from PV panels of 1.82 GWh that will help supply electrical power to 700 families in 7 villages, as well as one school, one medical clinic and government offices via a 14-kilometer distribution network. The project was financed through the local government's annual budget for village electrification projects, a fund that is intended to enhance villager's quality of life and create economic opportunities for Malaysians living in remote rural areas.

Leonics Company Overview
LEONICS Company Limited has grown from a Thai-based UPS manufacturer to become a leading global player and solution provider in the sustainable, renewable energy market. We specialize in the design and supply of energy conservation products, including renewable energy and energy saving products as well as energy conservation systems that address the needs of household, commercial and government clients. LEONICS service offerings include the design, installation and management of remote power monitoring for energy conservation systems, including both stand-alone and grid-tied solar energy systems, hybrid power systems and energy saving systems.
Grid connected inverter or grid tie inverter uses for grid connected application that does not require battery backup system. It suits to use for small residential solar system to large commercial solar system.
Hybrid inverter or hybrid power inverter is designed for hybrid power system. It can operate as either a stand-alone inverter or a grid tie inverter. It suits to use for remote village electrification or remote island electrification to provide continuous reliable power at remote locations.
Solar Island Hybrid Power System or Hybrid Solar System is an Off-grid power systemthat combines PV systems with diesel generators and/or other renewable energy systems, (e.g. wind turbines, biogas units, small-scale hydropower, etc.) to supply continuous electric power. Hybrid power systems provide reliable electricity from renewable energy sources to supplement engine driven generators for remote island electrification or remote village electrification in off-grid areas.
Solar Farm also known as PV power farm, Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) and Roof top PV system are typically employed to facilitate large-scale centralized PV grid-connected systems capable of producing electricity from the sun and then selling that electricity back to the utility grid. Such initiatives typically benefit from government subsidies and related renewable energy policies.
Solar Thermal System or Solar Water Heating System is one of most cost-effective renewable energy systems. Solar thermal systems are designed to collect or absorb solar energy for heating water used in residential, commercial and industrial applications for reducing the amount of electricity, gas or fuel required to heat water.
Customized Renewable Energy Systems will be designed and installed by Leonics staffs. We integrate renewable energy into system design to meet customer’s requirements and help customer to reduce fuel or electricity consumption.
