*Tested Li-Ion Battery 1 MW

For the first time a test set to an energy storage system based on lithium ion batteries and a bidirectional DC/ AC inverter of 1MW has been performed. The project was developed by the Renewable Energy Grid Integration Department at CENER (National Renewable Energy Centre) commissioned by the company Abengoa.

Energy Storage Systems (ESS) and concretely batteries, are versatile systems that can provide many services to improve the functionality and efficiency of the grid, such as correcting deviations and “ peak shaving” (technical term for a management strategy to reduce power consumption in on-peak hours) or power services and voltage and frequency regulation.

Given the market and technology development level, it is now when energy storage at the MW scale is being taken into account for its integration into the electrical system.

On one hand those tests are intended on the characterization of the battery and by the other to analyze and validate the performance for use indifferent energy services . In this way, these tests allow the customer to ensure equipment performance according to diverse specifications before being put into service.

Specifically the tests carried out at the CENER premises, Wind Turbine Test Laboratory, sited in Sangüesa are: 

  • Charge-Discharge tests, curves V-I vs SOC and cycles at different power , response times and efficiency
  • V/Q mode test
  • P/f mode test
  • PQ Curve
  • Voltage dips test
  • Power quality THD

These tests, an international novelty, are an important milestone for the CENER´s department and have proved the Grid Integration Department capabilities in this domain. As a result, CENER has already received requests to repeat these trials in the coming months.
