ESS AND HYBRID APPLICATIONS

APPLICATION STACKING

Through the Web Interface (HMI), applications can operate concurrently (stacks) with priorities (e.g. perform application 2 only if application 1 is not active). Applications can also be configured to use a certain percentage of the asset (application 1 has access to 60% of the BESS rated power, application 2 has access to 40% of BESS rated power). Furthermore, applications can be scheduled to operate certain days a week on certain hours of the day, or 24/7.

CUSTOMIZABLE APPLICATIONS

Fractal EMS supports a wide array of pre-programmed and customizable applications. Applications can respond to market or sensor inputs. Customer and/or third-party access to scheduling and execution of applications or stacks enabled.

Sends real and reactive power to inverters
Manages control modes and open/closes breakers

Collects information from the battery racks
Provides status and diagnostics for Unit Controller(s), Rack BMS and Module BMS

Interfaces with thermal management to optimize performance and maintain warranty compliance
Status, alerts, automatic / remote activation of fire suppression to ensure system safety

INTUITIVE CALENDAR

Fractal EMS allows operators to stack and deploy multiple applications with an intelligent scheduler back by multi-user permissions. Fractal EMS provides a Calendar that allows you to schedule application stacks and to schedule when your system will start/stop. Stacks are customizable, you can prioritize applications and configure individual parameters. Calendar events can be repeated, color coded and copied. Timeframes can be as short as one minute and as long as a year. In addition, the Calendar can accept schedules from 3rd parties (e.g., Fractal Model).

 

 

 

 

INTELLIGENT DISPATCH

Fractal EMS maximizes your energy storage system’s value through intelligent dispatch.

Stack and Prioritize

Identification, prioritization and setpoint creation for primary and secondary applications enables customers to stack economic benefits.

Performance Optimizer

Mode-based State of Charge (SOC) and ramp rate management schemes to maximize system performance, battery life and safety.

Dispatch of Schedule

Switching between applications can be commanded by dispatch signal or the scheduler function. Combinations of applications may be operated simultaneously.

Custom Operating Modes

Built-in operating modes with user-defined prioritization and customization enabled. Execution of algorithms is response to measured conditions or external stimulus.
