We already have a solution for:
Hybrid power station
Energy as a service
Since we have been engaged in the development and production of BMS for lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and uninterruptible power supplies for a long time, we have the following competencies:
- development of lithium-ion batteries of any capacity and purpose;
- ensuring information interaction of the battery with other equipment;
- development of a battery maintenance system according to IIoT concept.
If you need a smart lithium-ion battery, as well as a system for monitoring and maintaining these batteries, then our professionals will help with your task.
Our systems are used in the following projects:
- prototype unmanned electric bus MatrЁshka;
- Formula Electric MADI team electric vehicle battery;
- Polytech Solar Team solar vehicle battery.
We work closely with the team of the Moscow Automobile and Highway State Technical University (MADI) and conduct joint tests of the electric car created by them. The BMS used in the electric car has been operating for several years and protects the battery both when it is charged and when the battery is discharged, including in critical conditions under which the current limit values can be exceeded.
Recently, many UPS developers have considered lithium-ion batteries as energy storage devices, not lead-acid batteries. Despite the high initial cost, the cost of owning a UPS for lithium-ion batteries is lower than lead-acid counterparts. The advantages of using lithium-ion batteries are a large specific capacity, the ability to provide large currents for a long time, as well as the ability to charge faster than lead-acid batteries. All of the above, as well as the fact that lithium-ion batteries have an order of magnitude greater resource, allows us to conclude that the proportion of lithium-ion UPSs will steadily grow. At the same time, our company already has successful experience in adapting the battery system for specific UPS models. BMS is ready for use in UPSs with voltages up to 1000 volts and load currents up to 1200 amperes.
Hybrid power station
Currently, hybrid power plants are widely used, which use both traditional fuels (gasoline, diesel fuel, natural gas) and renewable energy sources. The latter include solar and wind energy forms. An example of such a hybrid power plant could be a system with a diesel generator (DG) set and solar power station (PV). In the daytime (during solar activity) most of the electricity is produced by PV, at night and at the moments of peak consumption, DG enters the work. The considered example of a hybrid power plant has several drawbacks. First, the increased consumption of diesel fuel at night and at the moments of peak energy consumption. Secondly, the non-use of surplus electricity, which produced PV. Both deficiencies affect the operating costs of maintaining the power plant. To reduce operating costs, it is necessary to use an energy storage system (ESS) based on lithium-ion batteries. On the one hand, it will accumulate electricity generated by the PV, and on the other hand, it will optimize the operating mode of the DG set: reduce fuel consumption, increase the operation life.
At the moment, our BMS systems operate in hundreds of trucks located in Russia and the USA. These are reliable electronic devices that ensure the safe operation of lithium-ion traction batteries in forklifts of Hyster, Yale, Jungheinrich and others. Distinctive features of our BMS systems are:
- tight integration with the onboard forklift system;
- continuous logging of battery status;
- ability to wirelessly send data about the battery status of the top-level system.
Integration with the truck equipment ensures that the battery is part of the system and its behavior is strictly regulated. This is necessary primarily in the part of ensuring the safety of the operator of the truck and nearby personnel.
Monitoring the battery system online allows you to timely identify and eliminate problems in the battery. For the customer, this means that his equipment will not fail at the wrong time, which means that he will be able to eliminate or mitigate the risks associated with battery system failures.
Energy as a service
BMS, in addition to monitoring the state of the lithium-ion battery, performs the calculation of the electricity received from the charger and spent on the load. This information can be used in the implementation of the Energy as a Service business model. Data on received and spent electricity can be used by the consumer to estimate how much energy was spent and when it happened. Thus, our products are ready for use in a business model that does not sell the battery as such, but electricity that is used to solve consumer problems.
