Energy Storage - Hatch Innovative approach to cost reduction

  1. 1. RENEWABLE POWER Battery Energy Storage Systems for Mines Hatch worked with a Battery System Vendor to complete detailed engineering for the installation of a 300kW/1.2MWh Battery Energy Storage System at 2 test locations. Battery Energy Storage Systems improve the performance and efficiency of islanded diesel and Wind/Solar-diesel Hybrid Systems. Islanded Diesel Systems can be improved by permitting the diesel generators to operate at maximum efficiency while a Battery Energy Storage System regulates the grid frequency and acts as a spinning reserve. This operating regime maximizes the utility of the most efficient and easily maintained diesels and thereby lowers operating costs. Islanded Wind/Solar-Diesel Hybrid Systems with Battery Energy Storage Systems improve performance by turning off unnecessary diesels, when clean power is available. The result is improved stability of the islanded grid with lowered diesel operating cost. A Battery Storage System allows more renewable generation, by ramp rate control, thereby further lowering power generation costs. Hatch develops innovative solutions that meet unique site requirements to reduce energy operating costs. Short payback periods are achieved by optimal sizing and selection of energy storage devices. Hatch’s expertise in Power Generation and Distribution System Design provides ENERGY STORAGE CONTACTS Jakob Janzen Associate, Control Technologies Tel: +1 905 403 3732 jjanzen@hatch.ca 42CAPA0XX/XX/20XX Hatch’s expertise in Power Generation and Distribution System Design provides lower risk in a rapidly developing energy storage technologies environment. (Over) Diesel fuel cost savings can offset the capital and running costs of a wind-diesel-battery hybrid retrofit project. Hatch has global experience in designing hybrid power systems. Hatch worked with Barrick to design a 1MW/4MWh Battery Based Solar Islanded Grid for a remote location.
  2. 2. RENEWABLE POWER Hatch’s detailed integration study for the Inuit village of Kangiqsualujjuaq in Canada’s arctic north involved a diesel plant retrofit with wind turbines and flywheel energy storage system ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS CONTINUED • Why not a typical lead acid battery? - Low life under constant cycling, large and heavy. Most vendors only supply batteries and not a system. • Which vendor/battery do I pick? Each battery technology has its nuances which are advantages or disadvantages depending on the application and size. • Can I use vendor controls for my application? – do they do what I want? • Should I use a flywheel over a battery? – better for a large number of smaller energy/power discharge cycles but may not provide the required energy. • What about lithium-ion battery fires? – We understand that battery management control systems and thermal management are key factors that impact the safety of larger Li-ion battery systems. SERVICES FOR CONCEPT TO COMMISSIONING Hatch offers its clients high-quality services through all development phases of energy storage projects: Planning and Development • Concept screening for energy storage technologies and project options ENERGY STORAGE flywheel energy storage system • Optimal sizing and selection of energy storage equipment • Conceptual and detailed economic assessment of energy storage retrofits • Siting and Permitting support (Electrical Impact Assessment Submission) Detailed Engineering • Confirm expected technical performance by detailed integration study - modeling the system dynamics and evaluation of power quality improvements and reliability • Operational Impact assessment of existing system protection and control. • Integration Assistance of energy storage into power plant control system • Detailed custom engineering design of Battery Energy Storage System based on client cell manufacturer with emphasis on safety systems, control system design and battery thermal package design • Balance of Plant Design Engineering • Constructability assessments and balance-of-plant estimates Implementation • Pre-commissioning and Commissioning Assistance. • Design review of other installations. After Start-up Assistance • Troubleshooting existing installations, collecting electrical data and performing root cause diagnosis.
