Smart Energy Storage
The Smart Energy Storage unit is a highly compact and energy dense lithium-ion battery pack,
complete with a Battery Management System and intelligent energy storage management software.
As compared with standard dry or wet lead-acid batteries, commonly used in UPS battery units across
Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and the developing world, the Smart Energy Storage units can store
3-4 times the energy in the same physical space requirements and last much longer
Because these solar power batteries are compact and elegant, they can be wall mounted anywhere where
there is open wall space, thereby eliminating the requirement to have a substantial portion of a room
dedicated to a large and bulky battery bank. This solar storage system is modular so you can connect multiple
battery packs together to provide you with the correct storage capacity.
Undoubtedly, these are currently the best batteries available in the market to store solar power. When
compared to UPS batteries, their capacity, lifespan and performance are unmatched. Most solar systems
available in Pakistan and other developing countries use the same dry gel or lead-acid batteries found
in UPS units. Moreover, Lithium-ion batteries are such that a generator will not be needed for night time
usage. For a comparison analysis of the Smart Energy System with other backup solutions click here.
Battery Management System
SkyLED’s Smart Energy Storage packs are equipped with a Battery Management System (BMS) which ensures that the batteries operate in the most optimal manner for their longevity and safety of operation. The BMS keeps track of the battery voltages, current levels, cell temperature and number of cycles. It also manages the charge balancing of the lithium ion cells to make sure the battery pack has optimal capacity at all given times.
SkyLED SmartFlow software manages the charging and discharging of the Smart Energy Storage by taking into account the feedback from the BMS. Smartflow makes sure all battery parameters are within the defined thresholds for maximum safety and availability and minimal charging costs. By analyzing these battery and cell level statistics, the SkyLED BMS also predicts when a battery pack needs to be replaced so you can schedule a replacement well ahead of time.
