The primary use of this energy storage system is for the storage of excess generated solar energy (PV) or energy from the grid (Utility provider) for the purpose of either self-consumption or backup during grid failures later. In the event of a grid failure, the stored energy will be converted from DC to AC and utilized by means of a suitable and compatible Energy Dock Level 2 - 5 energy system.
The LiFePO4 battery is one of the most stable forms of lithium-iron technologies available for this specific purpose. The LiFePO4 battery uses a lithium-iron-derived chemistry and shares many advantages and disadvantages with other lithium-iron battery chemistries. However, there are significant differences. Lithium iron phosphate chemistry offers a longer cycle life than other lithium-ion approaches. One important advantage over other lithium-ion chemistries is thermal and chemical stability, which improves battery safety. With a Specialized Solar Systems (SSS) custom designed and intelligent BMS with CANbus (battery monitoring system), the health of the battery is automatically maintained from the charging cycle, right through to the discharging floor level State of Charge(SOC) within the various parameters from the battery cell supplier in order to ensure the optimal lifespan, safety and warranty.
The BMS CAN-bus communication protocol integrates seamlessly with the Victron CCGX, Venus GX or Cerbo GX graphical user interfaces for a full optimised ESS system (Energy Storage System).
