Enbala CEO Ron Dizy did not reveal how much energy his company is regulating at present,  but a good gauge would be the 10 megawatts of regulation that IESO has set aside for real-time demand response.

Ultracapacitor UPS (U-UPS) for voltage dips and micro-interruptions

Power interruptions are the most frequent power supply problems with wide-ranging consequences for industry. The causes of these interruptions include short-circuits in the distribution grid, lightning strikes, the connection and disconnection of power plants as well as volatile energy producers such as wind and solar. Because technologies and production processes are becoming increasingly complex, the…
