Charge Discharge (CDC) Diesel Hybrid Solution
A Hybrid Power Solution is one that takes a power source, such as a diesel generator, and combines that with an energy storage system, such as a battery bank. The battery bank meets the day-to-day site power load and when its state of charge reaches a configured threshold, then the controller starts the generator and the site is powered by generator which also recharges the batteries. The generator is running under near ‘full load’ conditions and therefore is in optimum efficiency mode.
Typically, the generator will run for 4-6 hours to charge the battery bank under full load as opposed to running 24 hours a day at 30% of its capacity just keeping the site powered – this results in up to 50% diesel saving. The overall result is reduced fuel costs, longer equipment service life and fewer refuelling and maintenance site visits.
The following diagram illustrates the key components of a Generator-Battery Hybrid Power solution.
The PowerOasis Generator-Battery Hybrid Power solution measures all key sensor inputs to optimise system performance. The data is stored locally and then uploaded to central PowerOasis Manager in the networks operations centre. The result is reduced fuel costs, longer equipment service life and fewer refuelling and maintenance site visits.
