What is Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) 4000VA? The Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) 4000VA, developed by Su-vastika, is an in-built Lithium LifePO4 battery backup system to store the energy through the grid and run on the battery backup in case of power failure. This is an ideal system for homes and offices. It can run the air conditioner, TV fans, fridge lights, general household load, and IT load without flicker. This is also called a Lithium Inverter, having a built-in Lithium battery to replace ordinary inverters running on Lead Acid batteries available in the market. This can be called a built-in Lithium Inverter/UPS.
The primary component of a BESS is a LiFEPO4-based battery. Su-vastika has designed ESS with powered Lithium Ion batteries being developed to offer an uninterrupted power supply with reduced charging time and higher efficiency. Battery ESS comes with Pure Sinewave technology.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battery_storage_power_station
Su-vastika uses advanced Static switches in its BESS 4000VA model that reduce switching time to less than three milliseconds. It is fast enough to prevent a computer and most sensitive equipment from resetting, offering customers an uninterrupted power backup. Because of its strong R&D and the experience of its able Mentor, Su-vastika understands the power backup needs of its customers across industries.https://suvastika.com/products/energy-storage-system/
Most importantly, it’s our Patent Technology as well.
At Su-vastika, we have a complete range of battery ESS single phase up to 5KVA. ESS can run various loads of Commercial, Residential, Factories, Hospitals, Schools, Colleges, Hotels, etc. Anyone who needs to run high-capacity loads where home UPS/inverters are being used can also run the same load on the ESS.
The best part is we can customise Battery ESS-based power backup solutions based on individual needs. This can also run for a short duration, especially for generators where people want uninterrupted power during a power failure. This can work between the Grid and generators, and there will be no switching time.
Maintenance in the normal Inverter/UPS having the Lead Acid batteries is a big headache as the regular battery water topping is required, creating a security hazard in today’s world.
The BESS is designed to require No maintenance at all – No water topping, No water levelling, No mineralisation, No frequent battery replacement, etc. Lithium Ion batteries are made of Lithium-ion cells combined and sealed in a battery pack.
That’s right, once installed, these BESS can guarantee a hassle-free experience and smooth power supply.
Su-vastika BESS has Bi-directional technology under which the MOSFET circuit converts AC from the power mains into DC to charge the battery. In the absence of current from the mains supply, the same MOSFET converts DC stored in the battery into AC used by the appliances in the house. For charging the battery, the bi-directional technology provides pure DC. It uses pure sine-wave output for discharging, which ultimately increases battery life.
Su-vastika ESS comes with Isolation Transformer which is the most important parameter when it comes to be weak neutral or weak ground. All the developing countries have the major problem of weak Neutral and Voltage variations and spike and surges which are absorbed by the Isolation transformer but in High Frequency Inverter without Isolation Transformer, the failure start happening in these conditions.
The BESS can work smoothly for 50 years with very little maintenance. The life of the lithium battery will be no less than ten years which is very cheap compared to the Lead Acid battery, as we need to change the Lead Acid battery within 2 to 3 years of usage.
Nowadays, Tubular batteries are used with ordinary Inverters/UPS, so Lithium is cheaper than Tubular Lead Acid batteries.
The Lead Acid battery wastes a lot of energy and takes time to charge the battery. The tubular battery keeps charging even when completely charged by taking a trickle charge, an extra electricity bill for the user. If one has 800 VA inverter/UPS installed, then 1 unit is consumed by the inverter/UPS whether the power cut happens or not.
The lithium battery-based BESS stops charging once the battery is fully charged and stops the electricity consumption.
The Lithium LifePO4 battery has a C1 rating. In contrast, the Lead Acid Tubular battery comes with a C20 rating, so once the Inverter/UPS is loaded with 8O% capacity, then the tubular battery backup reduces as this is meant for C20 capacity, but the Lithium C1 battery capacity remains the same for any percentage of the load.
Lead Acid battery, like a tubular battery, takes 15 hours of charging to provide a backup of 1 to 2 hours maximum daily. At the same time, the BESS can be charged and given backup five times a day. So if one installs a 50 Ah Lithium battery compared to a 150 tubular battery, then the backup time provided 50Ah by a Lithium battery in intermittent power cuts will be more than a 150 tubular battery in 24 hours.https://suvastika.com/tubular-battery-is-c20-and-c10-and-lithium-battery-is-c1-capacity/
Lithium Battery ESS is Cheaper than Traditional Inverters with Lead acid batteries
The life of the battery in the Lithium is more than 12 years for home and office backup purposes as the cycle life pf Lithium ion battery is 3000 cycles compared to a Lead Acid battery which gives a maximum of 400 cycles, that too if you do the proper maintenance by filling the battery with water topping in time. Lithium has 6 to 8 times the life cycle of a tubular battery, which will have a life of 12 years, in which period you will be changing at least four Lead acid batteries. So the cost of 5 Lead acid batteries compared to one Lithium battery is too low.
Secondly, the Lithium battery is a C1 battery, so one can install 50% of the battery to get the backup from the Battery ESS compared to Inverter/UPS. So one can install a 75Ah battery of Lithium compared to the 150Ah tubular battery, giving the same backup time as on a 600Watt load.
From all angles, a Lithium battery is cheaper than Lead Acid tubular battery. If we take the cost of a 70Ah Lithium battery compared to a 150Ah tubular battery, the price is almost 30 to 40% extra initially, but the life is a minimum of 4 times where the Lithium wins in the pricing part.
Battery ESS consumes 1/4th the space as compared to traditional home Inverter/UPS with Lead acid batteries.
The weight of a 70 Ah battery of Lithium compare to a Tubular Lead Acid battery is 6 Kg compare to 60 Kgs of tubular battery weight.
The size of the Inverter/UPS with the tubular battery cant be compared, and the space required to keep the tubular battery along with the Inverter UPS is too big. Secondly, you need an area with open space as the tubular battery has lead fumes. Battery ESS can be kept even in your drawing rooms with no risk of fumes coming out of it
Installing an ordinary Inverter/UPS with a Tubular Lead Acid battery is a health hazard as we install a lead fumes machine in our house or office, which is banned from all the other items available in the market. There is a buzz of Lead-Free water, Toys electronic components, pencils etc
Whereas we are bringing the Tubular Lead Acid battery in homes and offices and getting the lead fumes to reduce our lung capacity. Battery ESS is clean energy and has no lead or any fumes.
In any establishment, there are costly, sensitive devices that cannot withstand sudden fluctuations in voltage. The problem is that most power backup systems allow a sudden current rush and cannot protect the devices from the current influx during voltage fluctuations.
Our ESS will not just keep your sensitive appliances safe, but it will actively protect them as well. Unlike traditional inverters, which allow a sudden inrush of current, which can harm your machinery, our ESS provides power when the appliances are first installed. It gives voltage gradually so that your sensitive devices don’t get any jerk voltage or spikes. Switching time is so quick that the equipment will not stop if the mains power is disconnected. The soft start system increases and maintains the life of the appliances.
Whenever, there is a Low Supply voltage or High Supply voltage, and the supply rises or drops below the Safe voltage range, Our ESS seamlessly switches to the battery power, keeping all your machinery and equipment safe. Moreover, the power quality produced in Battery Mode is better than the power quality provided by the electricity distribution companies or by the government as our ESS provides Pure Sine Wave output having THD ≤5%, which is a far better quality power compared to generators.
Whether the power fails, the voltage falls below the safety limit, or the voltage increases beyond safety limits, the ESS works automatically without any manual intervention.
Our ESS systems have Wi-Fi and GSM connectivity (Optional). Our application will monitor your ESS and send regular reports to Su-vastika technicians. In case of any issues, an automatic alert will be sent, and a service call will be made.
- Wi-fi features in ESS make it extremely easy for you to check the status of backup time along with load status, which will be shown on the screen (in wattage) to check the consumption of each appliance.
- You can even constantly check the voltage from your home or office when the ESS works on the grid or mains mode.
- In voltage fluctuations, the ESS will protect the applications by switching on the battery mode, which can be easily viewable to the customer.
- You will not only be notified about alerts such as overload or short circuits on your app screen but also get timely recommendations for things you can do to resolve the situation.
- The power backup solution Su-vastika provides has Wi-Fi and GSM connectivity (Optional). Our application will monitor your ESS and send regular reports to Su-vastika technicians. In case of any issues, an automatic alert will be sent, and a service call will be made.
- Our Online monitoring System will keep track of the Battery Bank usage and send an alert when the replacement of the battery bank is required (Optional).
Su-vastika brings in a Digital warranty for Inverters, a remarkable, revolutionary, and mindful innovation by Su-vastika Systems. Su-vastika’s Digital warranty is linked with the microprocessor in the PCB Mains card of its complete range of UPS.
The warranty shall start only when Inverter is connected to Battery, and when the Battery is disconnected from Inverter, the warranty stops. By linking the warranty with the microprocessor in the PCB card of the inverters, Su-vastika has found a unique way to ensure warranty coverage that aligns with the actual usage of the Inverter.
Battery ESS by Su-vastika also comes with a solar feature, charging batteries using solar power. This way, the cost of the system can be recovered in just 2-3 years since the cost of power generation using Solar Panels is very low, and they also last up to 25 years, which will further reduce the running costs.
The Solar-based ESS can be installed in various places where the space for solar panels is there, solar can be properly utilized, and the cost to produce the electricity will be very low; there is no alternative to such a cheap electricity cost.
Battery charging will depend on the size of the solar panels installed and the size of the external solar charge controller. In this case, the Heavy-Duty behaves like a Grid Solar ESS, and it can cut off the mains supply and run completely on solar and batteries. This Saves the cost of electricity, Increases the backup time, and Charges the batteries simultaneously.
Even if power is available on the grid, the solar-based system will be able to run by leveraging solar and battery power (when available), which will again save the cost of electricity.
