Italy-based Zucchetti Centro Sistemi (ZCS) has unveiled a brand new high-voltage lithium-ion battery. It claims the brand new product is especially ultimate for three-phase storage functions.
“With the ZCS – HV 5kWh battery, we’re providing a high-voltage resolution that’s stackable and simple to mount,” the division director of innovation at ZCS, Averaldo Farri, informed pv journal. “Every battery can function independently due to an onboard dc/dc converter current in every module.”
The battery measures 420 mm x 708 mm x 170 mm and weighs 50 kg. It has a nominal capability of 5.12 kWh and a nominal voltage of 400 V. It additionally options an ambient working temperature vary of -10 C to 50 C and an IP65 safety stage.
It comes with a 10-year guarantee and may purportedly function for greater than 6,000 cycles. A most of eight 5 kWh modules will be linked to a single inverter, bringing the overall capability per inverter to 40 kWh.
“This battery works with any ZCS three-phase hybrid inverters,” Farri mentioned. “To function at its fullest efficiency the battery methods additionally wants a base for meeting and assist and a battery administration unit (BMU) that manages the power within the battery and the communication flows from and to the inverter.”
The brand new product shall be obtainable for buy in early January 2023.
“Its configurability makes it notably appropriate for industrial and small industrial functions,” mentioned Farri. “Equally, it may be used on all residential functions the place an prolonged capability is required to offer electrical energy through the non-operational hours of the photovoltaic installations. The lithium-ion expertise makes it appropriate for high-depth discharge when and if wanted.”
