Innovative Lithium-ion system management design For MW solar plants:

Based on the product developed in Sol-Ion program as a basic building block, the consortium proposes :

(i) to develop an innovative system architecture enabling to manage safely, reliably and cost-effectively MW lithium-ion battery systems;
(ii) to develop power conversion and control system unit for connection to PV solar plant;
(iii) to manufacture a scale one prototype with 0.75 MWh/ 1 MW characteristics;
(iv) to test this complete system in-situ at scale 1 in an existing solar power plant;
(v) to assess, based on test results, the technical and economical benefits of the technology in this application;
(vi) to extrapolate test results to evaluate the applicability of the technology to other variable RES. This will be, to our knowledge, the first test of lithium-ion at MW range in a solar power plant.
