Battery storage integration

The context

  • Product: ePowerControl MC

Elum ePowerControl MC allows the implementation of a cycling strategy. BESS is grid-forming most of the day, ensuring the supply for the whole island thanks to PV generation and energy storage management. Then, gensets ensure the spinning reserve, mainly running at night. The gensets load is controlled to optimise the diesel energy generation ratio, and to share the operating time for a longer engine lifetime.

Elum ePowerMonitor platform allows remote monitoring for performance analysis, consumption supervision and alarm notification.

This isolated island is more independent from boat diesel resupply thanks to hybrid solar power. The system was deployed by the client’s autonomous team on-site with Elum remote assistance during the COVID lockdown.
