In December Jema gave the green light to the project in Arguineguin, Gran Canaria to supply one of the BESS IBX3-3c converters together with a redox flow battery. These batteries are characterized by their low self-discharge, low degradation due to calendar, high profitability and versatility. Regarding the last two points, this type of batteries allows sizing independently power and energy, thus avoiding oversizing, which together with their low cost (0.05 euros kW/h/cycle) makes them a very interesting option for stationary storage.
BESS models highlight a new concept of electrical grid: a transformed grid using bi-directional conversion systems. In this way they provide the grid with flexibility, being able to inject and absorb power, which, together with the ability to monitor the grid status, allows to improve the quality of the grid.
As a specific requirement for this type of batteries, the equipment has an AC precharge circuit. This precharge allows the voltage to be maintained at 900 V, thus allowing the battery to be preheated and adapted prior to operation.
Additionally, the developed bidirectional inverter control allows to adapt to the most demanding grid codes, being one of the most outstanding advantages of this model. Specifically, for this project, in addition to complying with the PO 12.2 homologation/regulation, it will comply with the NTS SENP code (No Peninsular).
Once again JEMA demonstrates its adaptability in different storage solutions both in terms of DC integration of batteries as well as in the AC part with the adaptation to grid codes.
