Battery Storage Design
Energy production and its optimal use is one of the most important challenges in today’s world. Due to the limited energy resources and high production costs, one of the most important challenges for experts is the use of renewable energy. Due to the lack of permanent access to energy, the need to store it is one of the most important issues in the energy supply.
For example, in the field of telecom, due to the importance of having stable and secure communications for subscribers, the need to provide energy at all hours of the day and night is one of the most important concerns of telecom companies.
The energy supply of these centers is provided by different means according to their location.
- Power grid
- Diesel generator
- Renewable energy
- Energy storage systems (batteries)
In recent years, the use of renewable energy like sun and wind as an endless resource has increased dramatically.
At first glance, equipping telecommunication centers with renewable energy is expensive, but from an economic and environmental point of view, if energy management and storage is done optimally, it will be quite economical in the long term.
Energy storage is done by battery storage systems and besides, the management of these systems is one of the most important issues in the field of energy in today’s world.
Arshon Technology has been involved in different types and sizes of battery storage systems design since 2009 and we have been using a variety of battery types such as GEL, Lead Acid, AMG (Absorbent Glass Mat), Li-Ion (Lithium-ion) batteries.
We developed Battery Management Systems (BMS) to manage the energy as well as protecting the battery asset.
Here is the look of our dashboard:
Our BMS system controls, manages, and maintains every individual cells in the battery stack and provides valuable information about the status of the battery storage as below:
- Stack voltage
- Stack current
- State of charge
- Maximum and minimum of cell voltages
- Maximum current
- Cell temperature
- Total capacity of the system over time
Our BMS system is a connected system, and we use IoT to monitor and control it remotely.
Future Smart Homes
In the near future, there will be energy independence for almost all home complexes and colonies. It means their energy sources will be completely sustainable and renewable energy such as the sun and wind which dominate other sources of energy like fossil fuels which we are utilizing today. Aside from this, natural gas can be the next alternative source of energy to be replaced when the sun and wind will not be available as a source of energy with low carbon dioxide emissions.
Future smart homes use energy storage systems to save energy whenever it is abundant to use later in the absence of these energy sources like sun and wind. Moreover, there is a controlling system that manages to produce, save, and utilize energy. For instance, if this is a sunny day, the priority will go for the sun to be the main source of energy production due to its availability and abundance. Simultaneously, realizing that the batteries are not full and need charging, the system manages to recharge them to get fully charged.
There also be geothermal solutions that these systems can apply. It means when the batteries are full and solar panels are receiving enough amount of energy for daily usage, then the system takes the excessive energy to the ground for geothermal storage. It transfers the energy into the ground and saves it as thermal energy under the ground. This stored thermal energy will later heat the cold water to supply warm water for houses at night or when solar energy will not be available.
The system is thoroughly smart so that it switches to natural gas for supplying energy if no renewable energy sources -like sun and wind- are available.
This smart system also uses forecast weather, so when the next day is predicted to be a sunny day, it would not charge the battery while functioning properly and waiting for tomorrow to charge them.
The striking point of combining all sources of wind, sun, and natural gas together in this system is the remarkable flexibility resulting, in letting the system provide constant energy in a sustainable condition.
