Helping companies exploit the rich data held in the underlying battery, inverter and other equipment
Edge software is helping the providers of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) deliver safer, more efficient, and cost-effective solutions to their customers.
Edge computing is delivering competitive advantage, innovation, and product differentiation which is fundamental to creating successful commercial offerings that resonate with customers and help Battery Energy Storage System vendors capture market share.
By gathering, standardizing, and then exploiting the rich data held in underlying battery, inverter, and other equipment control systems, Battery Energy Storage Systems can benefit from:
IOTech Edge Central is an open edge data platform that forms the basis of MPWA’s BESS data acquisition and enterprise-level data mining and analysis; providing real-time control capability, with edge management for ease of maintenance and version control capability for the BESS portfolio of products.
Battery Energy Storage System vendors need to build and deliver capabilities quickly, in a repeatable fashion, and in a cost-effective and non-proprietary way.
Vendors can choose and easily integrate energy products from a variety of equipment suppliers to, for example, maximize energy density, and create the most appropriate overall hardware and software solution for each of their customers or customer sites.
Challenge: Various operational data points need to be obtained from battery racks and associated equipment, and analyzed at the edge (e.g., for alarms, shutdowns, etc.) and the solution also needs orchestration management across multiple sites and customers.
Solution: Universal OT connectivity layer in IOTech Edge Central is used to collect the data for further process which then implements a variety of rules on the ingested data, for example, to detect abnormal conditions and, if necessary, raise alarms or shut down equipment. These calculations must be done at the edge since quick and reliable actions are imperative. Data is also sent to various endpoints such as SCADA systems. IOTech’s Professional Services team was instrumental in configuring the system and adding several product extensions during the solution development phase as well as supporting the development of the edge rules processing logic.
