In recent years, the power industry has been undergoing a revolutionary change. With the increasing proportion of intermittent energy sources in power production, the importance of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) has gradually emerged. By properly configuring energy storage equipment, the power system can better achieve supply-demand balance and have stronger power regulation and dispatching capabilities. At the same time, battery energy storage technology is also experiencing the moment of its value realization, and various incentive policies and participation in power market response plans provide opportunities for enterprises to achieve energy savings and revenue generation.
Advantages of Battery Energy Storage Systems
The application of Battery Energy Storage System brings many advantages, such as intelligent energy consumption management, cost reduction, enhanced resilience, resource conservation, and improved environmental efficiency. BESS has a wide range of power and energy storage capacity, covering small household devices to large-scale industrial and public systems. Remarkably, in 2020, more than 31,000 and 100,000 residential BESS were installed in Australia and Germany respectively. Nowadays, large-scale BESS has been widely used globally, covering multiple countries including the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Japan, and China.
What is BESS and how does it work?
Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) belongs to the Energy Storage System (ESS), which can capture and store energy from various energy sources and save it in rechargeable batteries for future use. When needed, the battery can release the stored electrochemical energy for various applications such as households, electric vehicles, and industrial and commercial facilities.
BESS is a composite system consisting of hardware and advanced software. Its main components include:
Battery system: composed of multiple battery cells that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. These cells are arranged in modules, and multiple modules form a battery pack.
Battery Management System (BMS): ensures the safe operation of the battery system. BMS monitors the state, parameters, and health of battery cells to ensure that the battery is not affected by hazards such as fires.
Inverter or Power Conversion System (PCS): converts the direct current (DC) generated by the battery into alternating current (AC) for various facilities. The inverter supports bidirectional energy flow, allowing for charging and discharging.
Energy Management System (EMS): monitors and controls the internal energy flow of BESS, achieving efficient energy management by coordinating the operation of BMS, PCS, and other components.
And to meet more application scenarios according to different needs, we Thunder Sky Winston Battery has developed different sizes of container-typed BESS, like 10’ with 0.6MWH, 20’ with 1MWH and 40’ with 2.6MWH, etc.
