According to a press release issued by MHI, there three are involved overall container-project: two of the container home is about 2,000 units of lithium ion batteries and a third House is the air conditioning system that makes responsible for converting direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).
The storage system is set, the Kirkwall installed power plant in the UK Orkney Islands. Power is always a lack of profit making or to the and be transferred from the Mainland via a u-boat cable. In theory, the storage system is excess energy in the lithium-ion batteries should, if needed, provides the supply exceeds an increased degree of reliability for future performance.
The problem of storing energy in the heart of one of the biggest perceived weaknesses of the renewable energy technologies calls: If the wind is not blowing whats happens when the tide is not rotating, and when the Sun isn't shining is? According to Michael Goggin, Manager of transmission policy with the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), energy storage systems such as that developed by MHI and SSE work well in certain situations, but in others it may be actually less cost effective than alternative methods.
"Integrated power system on the Mainland, there are many existing sources of flexibility, so that new energy storage resources are not required to accommodate the very small amount of variability and uncertainty," Goggin said. "Storage is an option to increase a system's flexibility makes it and using it makes sense when it is more cost effective." However, other options, particularly the greater use of the existing resources are or building more transmission, usually less expensive on large integrated makes systems."
After the AWEA of "wind power and energy storage" Factsheet allows built into the existing system of power increase flexibilities operators or reduce the output of generators. This makes it more space for certain variability possible, easy, and inexpensive.
Goggin went on to say that he believes that systems can benefit from the power of the island far better from energy storage systems. "they have no connection to the outside world and have often weak transmission systems and inflexible power plants," he said, "so that it tends to be more cases where can be economical storage."
MHI/SSE shared memory system is to go online early 2013.
