Batteries used in conventional solar micro grid applications for energy storage, experiences several micro cycles and deep discharges which have an adverse impact on the overall life of the battery. To handle such fluctuations, the batteries are being oversized. One solution to the above problem is usage of Hybrid Energy Storage System (HESS) comprising of Hybrid Ultra Capacitors (HUC) and Batteries wherein the HUCs’ will smoothen the battery current during surges, in turn aids in enhancing the battery’s life1–3. This paper discusses the performance analysis of 1.5kW micro grid based on HESS by evaluating the electrical parameters across different scenarios.

Abstract


Batteries used in conventional solar micro grid applications for energy storage, experiences several micro cycles and deep discharges which have an adverse impact on the overall life of the battery. To handle such fluctuations, the batteries are being oversized. One solution to the above problem is usage of Hybrid Energy Storage System (HESS) comprising of Hybrid Ultra Capacitors (HUC) and Batteries wherein the HUCs’ will smoothen the battery current during surges, in turn aids in enhancing the battery’s life1–3. This paper discusses the performance analysis of 1.5kW micro grid based on HESS by evaluating the electrical parameters across different scenarios.
