Battery Energy Storage System PQpluS

ABB's battery energy storage system, PQpluS helps the electricity consumers by actively managing the timing and profile of their energy usage. It reduces energy costs and makes the system more resilient while improving the overall efficiency, reliability and availability of the power system.

PQpluS is available in a wide range of power and energy ratings, making it the right choice for end users, system integrators and aggregators, as well as users with the right control system for utility scale applications. It can also be used where multiple energy sources such as wind, solar, diesel or other generators operate in parallel and where the integrator’s high level system controller coordinates the overall operation. In addition to functions of peak shaving, load levelling, power quality and back-up power support, PQpluS can be managed by third party controller to perform frequency regulation, integration of renewables and capacity firming.

 For commercial and industrial customers:
- Peak load shaving
- Back-up power
- Power quality
System integrators can integrate PQpluS with their controller and provide utility scale solution for applications such as:
- Frequency response
- Load leveling
- Spinning reserve
- Capacity firming and ramp rate control for renewable energy sources
- A compact design requires small footprint, ideal for applications where space is at a premium
- Modular design provides the pre-engineered building blocks, reducing engineering as well installation time
- Standard control algorithm for commercial and industrial applications such as peak shaving is integrated in the control system, making it autonomous
- The power quality features enhances the overall operating efficiency by reducing losses, filtering harmonics, improving power factor and performing load balancing
- User friendly interface for the operators makes it a simple device to operate and maintain
