Smart energy storage solutions improving grid performance
A “multi-tool” to fix power capacity and quality issues in the distribution grid
With increasing power peak demands and increasing distributed intermittent power production, the Distribution System Operators (DSOs) face challenges with overloading of transformers and with maintaining the required voltage quality.
By placing advanced energy storage systems at the right “hot-spots” in the distribution network, active power can be provided from the battery to avoid/reduce the overloading of the transformers. In addition, active and reactive power can be provided to reduce over- and under-voltages. The battery system will also enhance the short circuit capacity of the distribution line by assisting in clearing faults and thereby also increase the safety.
Energy storage can be an attractive tool to defer or avoid traditional upgrades of transformers and/or cables.
Pixii will during the autumn 2019 install several pilots in the distribution network of Ringerikskraft in a project supported by ENOVA and Innovation Norway.
Research and development is at the core of our business idea – together with our clients we are deploying solutions that reduce power cost without reducing power consumption.
Energy storage for power quality support and decongestion of distribution networks
Distributed energy storage solutions can help DSO's in meeting challenges due to increasing power peak demands and intermittent power production.
Using energy storage to generate revenue on lazy assets in telecom networks
Telecom networks possess a significant energy storage capacity. This can be utilized for "ancillary services" without having any impact on the reliability for the telecom network.
Charging of electrical vehicles
Energy storage interacting with chargers for electrical vehicles
Installing EV chargers can result in costly upstream capacity increase requirements and demand charges.
