Genneia thermoelectric power plants consist of gas turbines semi-transportable low power (between 5 and 30 MW). These equipments were installed in order to deliver power to the grid of the SADI (Argentine Interconnection System) in the hours of peak demand and points compromised by high electrical demand and the distance to the high voltage network. Gas turbines can be generated with natural gas or diesel fuel and have the important characteristic of being put into operation at full power in a few minutes. For this reason they are suitable for providing the service of CPR (Reserve Short Term 20 minutes), required when sharp increases in electricity demand arise, or when taken out of service a large generator of the network and need to compensate for the loss of contribution the shortest possible time. In conclusion, it is central peak whose main function is to cover peak demand ('peaking') due to the technical features that allow you to quickly meet your goal. Moreover, these devices are also used to maintain constant mains frequency in 50 cycles (or Hertz), increasing or decreasing the power supplied to the system in cases where the frequency drop or rise, respectively (the same is You must continually find a stable of between 49.80 and 50.20 Hertz) value. This service is called RPF (primary frequency regulation).
We are currently operating thermal power plants connected to the national system (SADI) under Resolution No.SE 220/2007 from the Energy Secretariat in Buenos Aires and Entre Ríos.
