How to Build a Containerized Battery Energy Storage System
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
2:20 PM – 2:40 PM EDT
If you have always wanted to gain a better understanding of what is going on inside a containerized battery energy storage system, then this session is for you. Nuvation Energy CEO and CTO Michael Worry will deliver a technical education session that explains engineering design for containerized BESSes. This training course is ideal for managers and engineers who are building or procuring energy storage solutions for grid-attached and behind the meter applications. It will have a level of technical density that increases your expertise in a variety of areas, while being accessible to both non-engineers and engineers alike. The presentation will cover battery selection, stack design, container electrification, electrical noise management, environmental controls, the battery management system, the power conversion system, and energy management controllers. Michael will begin with an explanation of how the power requirements of a target energy storage application impact the design or selection of an ESS. He will share specific use-cases that Nuvation Energy has been involved with and share how power requirements impacted those design decisions. He will also discuss trade-off decisions that need to be made when designing for stacked services applications. Michael will then present an energy storage system architecture example and provide a closer look at each of the main components in the design. This session will explore how the types of decisions that are made in terms of component selection, communications, and system integration can have long-term impacts on the reliability, flexibility and functionality of the ESS.
