As municipalities seek to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate fluctuations and disturbances in the power grid, they are increasingly turning to growing infrastructure that can produce and store renewable energy. Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) solutions can improve power allocation flexibility in power generation, transmission, and consumption, helping to meet the growing demand for alternative energy sources.
Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is a large-scale battery system that is connected to the power grid and used to store electricity and energy. The battery energy storage system (BESS) utilizing lithium-ion technology has high energy and power density, making it suitable for use at the distribution transformer level. The available space in the distribution transformer architecture can be used to accommodate battery energy storage systems. BESS energy storage system, including lithium battery panels, relays, connectors, passive components, switches, and electrical products.
Lithium battery panel: A single battery cell, as part of the battery system, can convert chemical energy into electrical energy, and is composed of multiple battery cells in series or parallel. The battery module also includes a module battery management system for monitoring the operation of the battery cells. The energy storage container can carry multiple parallel battery clusters and may also be equipped with other additional components for easy management or control of the container’s internal environment. The direct current generated by the battery is processed by the power conversion system or bidirectional inverter, converted into current electricity, and transmitted to the power grid (facilities or end users). If necessary, the system can also extract electricity from the power grid to charge the battery.
The BESS energy storage system may also include some safety systems, such as fire control systems, smoke detectors, and temperature control systems, and even cooling, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The specific systems included will depend on the need to maintain the safe and efficient operation of BESS.
Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) has advantages over other energy storage technologies due to its small footprint and the ability to be installed in any geographical location without any limitations. It can provide better functionality, availability, security, and network security, and the BMS algorithm will enable users to improve battery performance and extend its lifespan.
