09 Jan Research work on the StorageLink project
Just in time for the beginning of 2018, Smart Power GmbH, together with the Chair of Electrical Energy Storage Technology at the Technical University of Munich, can begin research work on the StorageLink project. In December 2017, Smart Power received a binding funding decision from the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology.
In the project StorageLink a method for the development of tailor-made operating strategies for battery storage in the distribution network is developed: Focus is the simultaneous coverage of different applications with one storage system (Multi-Use). The main control lever in storage operation is the load-dependent storage ageing. A pool of measurement data from individual battery cells and from entire storage systems (from laboratory tests and ongoing operation) is used to model this. In addition to the model accuracy on the cost side, a prediction of load and local generation is necessary for optimal operation, for which prediction algorithms are developed and improved within the project.
Smart Power assumes that the algorithms developed in this project will benefit every future customer, as the economic efficiency of storage systems in multi-use use can be decisively optimized by these innovative algorithms.
