Battery energy storage skid solution (BESS) explained

A battery energy storage system stores energy via the use of a battery technology to be used at a later date. Battery energy storage systems are configured in one of two ways: a power configuration or an energy configuration, depending on the intended uses. In a power configuration, the batteries are used to inject a large amount of power into the grid in a relatively short period of time, which requires a high inverter-to-battery ratio. In an energy configuration, the batteries are used to inject a steady amount of power into the grid for an extended amount of time. This application has a low inverter-to-battery ratio. 
There are a large range of battery technologies. On of the newest battery energy storages is the Battery Energy Storage Skid (BESS) Solution for industrial and commercial application. It also has upgrades to its residential energy product. BESS is a fully integrated battery storage system with PCS scalable from 125kW to 500kW, and energy storage up to 2MWh. Its capabilities include  adapting various energy, power and performance requirements of commercial energy users. As for the residential sector, the energy storage solution combined with  E-series inverters to develop an all-in-one turnkey solution that can be installed in less than 15 minutes.


BESS is flexible and scalable

The BESS is flexible and scalable of PCS 500kW/ESS 2MWh. It a great solution for differing power, capacity, cycle life needs and created for outdoor applications. Its compact and modular skid-mounted design for cabinet solutions to protected against harsh environmental conditions. The solution gives application advantages for users like optimization of self-consumption from renewable and combined heat and power (CHP) systems, capitalize on grid services, charge management, and backup power supply. The BESS has 3 main parts: (1) battery inverter unit (2) BESS-DC solution and (3) an AC panel to recombine the AC output of multiple inverters. All these parts are factory-assembled and tested, reducing installation time and costs normally associated with field assembly.

Fully loaded battery technology

Homeowners can now  monitor and manage their energy output and consumption, enhancing the value of energy production from PV panels, reducing  costs and creating savings with this residential energy storage. The solution is made of battery technology;  E-series hybrid inverters, capable of power backup applications, AC- and DC-coupled energy storage, and microgrid. Its  equipped with 15 minute installation through mobile app, One Click service through mobile devices, cloud-based monitoring, auto grid selection, auto PV input detection and "Over-The-Air" software upgrades.
