What Is the Energy Storage System and Its Benefits?
The energy storage system is a solution to provide home power supply using distributed photovoltaic. It can realize the conversion and storage of energy and solve the imbalance between distributed generation and load in a high-efficiency way. The energy storage system improves renewable energy generation’s stability and utilization rate, realizes “self-generation and self-consumption” at the customer’s end, and saves electricity costs.
The energy storage solution is suitable for solar, wind energy, and other micro-grid small power stations, suitable for households, villas, islands, backup power supply, etc.
With the promotion of clean energy, energy storage solutions will be more widely used. So before you choose the suitable energy storage solutions, let’s check the choosing tips.
How to Choose Battery for Home Energy Storage System?
Different application scenarios have different battery design ideas, and three main common application scenarios are normal: Self-generation, Peak and valley electricity tariffs, Backup power:
Choose the capacity of the battery based on the average daily household electricity consumption (kWh) (the default energy storage system is energy sufficient).
- Peak and Valley Tariff
Calculate the maximum demand value of battery capacity based on the total electricity consumption during the peak period. Then find an optimal battery capacity within that interval based on the capacity of the PV system and the benefits of the investment.
- Backup power
The most important parameters are the total power used when off-grid and the expected time off-grid. The battery capacity needed is determined based on the maximum power consumption load and electricity consumption during the longest continuous power outage hours throughout the day.
Choose Energy Storage System with nRuiT Battery to meet the need
To meet the needs of energy storage solutions in various application scenarios, the energy storage system of nRuiT uses high-efficiency and long-life lithium iron phosphate and other batteries, with an excellent battery management system to ensure its life span of more than ten years. Here are some advantages of using lithium iron phosphate battery:
- Long service life: lithium iron phosphate batteries have a long life, which has a cycle life of more than 2000 times and can be used for 7-8 years. Compared with this, the service life of lead-acid batteries is only 1-2 years.
- Safety: lithium iron phosphate battery, after rigorous safety testing, even in traffic accidents, will not explode. So it is suitable for the household energy storage system.
- Energy saving and environmental protection: lithium iron phosphate batteries are green, non-toxic, non-polluting, raw materials from a wide range of sources,which has acheaper price.
- High-temperature resistance: lithium iron phosphate battery has high-temperature resistance. The battery’s hot air value can reach 350-500 ℃.
- Large capacity: lithium iron phosphate batteries have a large capacity, and their energy density can reach 100-120Wh/kg, while the energy density of the lead-acid batteriesare about 40Wh/kg.
- Small size: lithium iron phosphate batteriesare smaller than lead acid batteries in size and weight for the same capacity. For example, the lithium iron phosphate batteries are 30% smaller than lead-acid batteries in the size, and their weighs are only one third to one fifth of lead-acid batter
- Specification of power Porter 9.0 Vs Power Porter 12.0
