Tulsa Gas Technology’s (TGT) Potential Innovation with Lithium Battery ESS

History Made in Haryana: Tulsa Gas Technologies was started by the founder, Mr. Ashok Anand, a seasoned entrepreneur who was the first to begin indigenous manufacturing of CNG dispensers in India. TGT Replaces Diesel Generators with BESS (Lithium Battery Energy Storage System). History Made in Haryana: TGT Replaces Diesel Generators with BESS In Haryana Kundli, Sonipat TGT is the first factory to adopt lithium-ion Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) for generator replacement; the company’s involvement in CNG technology and interest in alternative fuels make it a potential player in this space by replacing 125 KVA diesel generator set to 100 KVA Lithium battery Energy Storage system.

Potential Benefits of Lithium BESS for Factories:

Advantage of ESS over DG Set

  • BESS provides instant power backup.

One of the main benefits of BESS is that, unlike DG sets, which break in the event of a power outage, ESS does not have this problem. This technology has no jerks or breaks as it starts immediately. BESS is automatic and seamless, in stark contrast to DG systems that require roughly a minute to resume the electricity through the generator.

  • The running cost of BESS is low.

The cost of running a diesel generator is three times or more than the power provided by the power company, making ESS a special and less expensive solution than running a diesel generator.

As the BESS has a battery as a backup, the consumption per unit of electricity produced is further decreased in cases of 50% or 70% ESS loading, as opposed to diesel generators, where the cost is unaffected by lower load because the diesel consumption doesn’t vary significantly. https://suvastika.com/products/energy-storage-system/

  • BESS has a longer lifespan.

The BESS has a shelf life of 50 years as compared to the diesel generator’s 10-year lifespan. Even their battery can last between 7 and 10 years, representing significant cost-savings.

  • ESS is easier and cheaper to maintain. History Made in Haryana: TGT Replaces Diesel Generators with BESS

Diesel generators contain moving parts and require a battery to start automatically, making it important to service them every 300 hours or even less in some cases. Since a DG set includes moving parts, we also need an attendant to fill it up with diesel. However, an attendant is unnecessary for the ESS because it has no moving parts.

  • BESS can run on Solar system:

The cost of the system can be recovered in 2 to 3 years if we include a solar feature that allows the batteries to be charged using solar energy. Since solar panels can last up to 25 years, the cost of power generation is also significantly reduced.

There is no substitute for such a low cost of electricity because the solar-powered ESS can be built anywhere there is space for solar panels and where solar energy can be used effectively. Even with power on the grid, this system can run on solar and battery power if available since the power cost will be far lower per unit than the cost of grid power. This will save money on electricity even when power is available on the grid. https://www.theweek.in/wire-updates/business/2022/11/04/del73-su-vastika-solar.html

Therefore, it is safe to say that ESS is the future of power backup, given all these benefits over DG sets.

Potential Benefits of Lithium BESS for Factories

  • Reduced Emissions: Unlike generators, lithium-ion batteries produce zero harmful emissions during operation, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier environment.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Lithium-ion systems boast higher efficiency than generators, translating to lower energy consumption and operational costs. The wear and tear cost reduces substantially as the Diesel generator voltage and waveform fluctuates a lot during the starting of the Load etc.
  • Silent Operation:  Lithium-ion BESS operates silently unlike noisy generators, creating a more peaceful and productive work environment.
  • Renewable Energy Integration: BESS can seamlessly integrate with renewable energy sources like solar panels, enabling self-sufficiency and grid resilience.
  • Improved Reliability: BESS can provide more reliable backup power than generators, reducing downtime and production losses.

Considerations for Factory Implementations:

  • Initial Investment: Lithium-ion BESS systems typically cost more upfront than generators.
  • System Sizing and Design: The right BESS size and design are crucial for optimal performance and cost-effectiveness.
  • Integration with Existing Infrastructure: Ensuring compatibility with existing electrical systems and equipment is essential.
  • Maintenance and IOT monitoring: Ongoing maintenance and support plans are necessary for optimal BESS performance. So, Su-vastika has the IOT in each of its BESS to monitor them on Wi-Fi or GSM platforms.

TGT’s Potential Role:

  • Technical Expertise: TGT’s experience in CNG technology and engineering knowledge could be leveraged to develop or offer BESS solutions for factories.
  • Industry Partnerships: TGT could collaborate with battery manufacturers, system integrators, and other stakeholders to promote BESS adoption in the factory sector.
  • Demonstration Projects: Implementing a pilot BESS project at its own facility could showcase the benefits and provide valuable insights for other manufacturers.

Conclusion:

History Made in Haryana: TGT Replaces Diesel Generators with BESS (Lithium Battery Energy Storage System). While TGT’s has taken the lead in Haryana to install the Lithium Battery Energy Storage System and their interest in alternative fuels and potential advantages present promising possibilities. The transition from generators to BESS offers significant environmental and economic benefits for factories, but careful consideration of technical and financial factors is essential. As the technology matures and costs decrease, we may see broader BESS adoption, potentially fueled by companies like TGT.
