Part 3, "Gain More Visibility into Your Energy Storage System" above, explores the pain points that energy storage system developers and operators can encounter in the field, and how to avoid designing these problems into your next ESS.
Enjoy these tutorial recordings of the Nuvation Energy battery management team exploring how energy storage system developers are utilizing the battery management system in system design and to gain greater control of their assets.
In this final installment of the series we will put State of Charge (SoC) and Depth of Discharge (DoD) under the microscope. We'll also look at lead-acid battery management, and explore the concept of optimizing for cycle-count vs duration.
In part 3 we explore the difference between configuring a BMS for battery-level vs system-level operating parameters. We explain cell balancing, and put a lense on communications between the BMS and other controllers in the ESS.
Nuvation Energy’s battery management system can provide power to the contactor coils directly, which strengthens its reliability as a safety system by enabling it to de-energize the contactors without assistance from any additional components. Read more information about energizing and de-energizing the contactors here.
In part 4 we discuss the role of the battery management system in preventing thermal runaway. We'll also explore the risks posed by undetected sense wire connection problems, and share a tip on how to reduce the risk of fused contactors.
