Energy Storage Systems

Explanations About Functions / Advantages

  • Photovoltaic systems, fuel cells, batteries and capacitors deliver DC current.
  • Enhanced energy efficiency
    • Use of braking energy within the DC link
    • Lower conversion losses in energy storage systems and renewable energies
  • Integration of various energy storage technologies (e. g. batteries, capacitors, flywheels).
  • Coupling and control of several distributed energy storage units and feeders based on droop control without additional communication devices.
  • Use of a common energy storage by distributed loads in a DC load sector.
  • Combined use cases of energy storage systems
    • Reduced peak loads
    • Increased renewable self-consumption
    • Enhanced security of supply and reduced downtime (uninterruptible power supply)
    • Islanding due to swift disconnection from the AC grid
