Island mode operation relates to power plants that operate in isolation from the national or local electricity distribution network.
There are two key types of island mode operation:
- Stand-alone generators not connected to the electricity grid
- Generators connected to the electricity grid in parallel mode, meaning they can generate power independently in the event of a grid power outage
Supply to consumers: with an option to choose between 50 and 60 Hz drive, these types of plants are typical of basic installations and mobile generator sets.
