Pine Ridge Vacation Rental Information
TIME OF DAY ROUTING
Time of day routing allows the energy storage system to perform a series of predetermined functions at a specific time each day. This could include any of the operation benefits listed.
Manual operation allows the end-user and/or NRI to manually control the operation of the system through a secure HMI interface at location or through a secure web portal.
Energy Arbitrage takes advantage of either a predetermined time-of-day price fluctuation or signal indicated (from SCADA data) to charge and discharge the storage system at a specific rate for a specific time.
When an energy storage system is configured with a renewable generation source and if the battery bank is fully charged, the system will route all excess power back to the grid.
Fleet operation allows all interconnected energy storage units to communicate and operate as a whole. This method of storage and distribution provides a scalable solution that can handle multiple modes across a diverse energy landscape. Residential homes, commercial units and utilities can cross communicate for maximum efficiency and operations.
SCHEDULED (OR ON DEMAND) LOAD REDUCTION
ISLANDING OR MICROGRID CAPABILITIES
When energy storage units are deployed in conjunction with renewable resources and/or when a utility wishes to have complete disconnection from the grid available for backup power because of grid failure, the islanding function is often configured. In an island function, the energy storage unit charges via locally generated power (PV/ wind/diesel generator) and will discharge to a specific predetermined load.
In emergency situations, systems equipped with a generator may switch autonomously to a generator mode of operation. This may be enabled either through a timed delay, a specific depth of discharge (DoD) of the battery, or based upon a specific load profile once the energy storage system has become isolated from the grid.
In reserve mode, the energy storage system will automatically direct power to the predetermined load if there is a lack of power from the grid. This is generally a selected priority setting as this allows the unit to function in another mode of operation so long as there is an active grid connection. In the event of a grid failure, the system would switch modes to power only its assigned load, IE - Emergency operations center.
NRI’s energy storage systems are designed to respond with power quality control allowing each unit to charge and discharge based upon the frequency regulation and voltage support requirements of the grid. This is generally activated on either a time-of-day basis or through signaling (SCADA). Specific kVAr or power factor may be input in order to achieve desired reactive power levels. Other advantages of power quality include the ability to manage frequency and voltage regulation.
PEAK SHAVING/LOAD LEVELING
Peak shaving charges and discharges the energy storage system based upon a specific load profile provided by the end-user. This operation is commonly used in conjunction with other benefits such as arbitrage to achieve maximum financial gains. End-users also use this when seeking to reduce demand charges due to load spikes. Arbitrage is the most common mode of operation activated on NRI energy storage platforms.
Energy Storage Systems deployed by NRI have several modes of operation each designed to provide the customer with a specific set of performance attributes and a corresponding series of benefits. Several modes of operation may be programmed into the BESS/DES to operate in coordination with one another in order to achieve maximum revenue stacking and passive benefits. Each mode provides the end-user with a different result in terms of the financial modeling based upon its time of day/month/year, its placement within the local utility grid structure, and its position within the ISO (if applicable). NRI, through its revenue stacking modelling process with the customer, identifies the most financially beneficial use of the energy storage unit while retaining any mission critical functions as a priority. Our utility clients have the advantage of having these financial reviews on a regular basis over the BESS/DES lifetime as an option to their annual service plan. NRI recognizes that both the operational and regulatory environment in which our utility clients operate varies around the globe. In response to this we’ve developed our financial modelling to account for a wide variety of cost-avoidance and revenue streams to assist utilities in finding the most beneficial methods of storage within their unique environment. The various Modes of Operation may be managed by either a pre-configuration of operational priorities, or through signaling from an external controller. NRI solutions can address any of the following Modes of Operation requests:
