Research Internship Topic
Lithium-ion BESSs are an increasingly popular solution to serve in grid-related applications. The Container format is currently the most preferred installation option owing to enhanced safety, security, and performance. Lithium-ion batteries need to be operated within a certain temperature range for safe and optimal operation of the system, which results in lower cell degradation and better electrical performance. These container BESSs are installed outdoors, and are exposed to environmental conditions, such as the ambient temperature and the solar irradiation. Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems are therefore necessary to ensure that the operating temperatures inside the containers stay within the stipulated range.
