Energy Storage System for high efficiency electricity grids
Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are able to solve one of the well-known problems
in the use of electricity: the electricity must be used immediately when it is
generated, which is not always the same time the electricity is needed.
To store energy, it must be converted temporarily to another form that is more
convenient or more economical for storing. Then, when it is needed again, the
energy must be re-converted back to a form that can be immediately utilized.
Some technologies provide short-term energy storage, while others can provide
energy storage for a longer duration. However, the goal is the same: an Energy
Storage System is a solution that stores energy for use at a later time.
In figure 1, we can see the ESS value chain from Generation to end user; key advantage
can be identified in “Efficiency”: the use of ESS increases the efficiency of the
electricity grid, at all levels.

As can be understood from both figure 1 and 2, ESS can play a
role in all the parts of the electrification value chain: generation,
transmission, distribution and end-use applications.
In figure 3, a visual representation of the benefit of ESS, while
charging or discharging, is given.
Focusing on generation stage, ESS can be used mainly to
create a smoother generation profile, and eventually, more
cost-effective energy production.
For example, large battery systems already play a significant
role in integrating and balancing large amounts of wind and
solar energy in real time. Fast reaction times mean that
batteries are ideally suited to provide this kind of service.
The amount of power generated by a wind farm can increase or
decrease by as much as 25% in a five minute interval. This fast
inrush or decline in wind power generation creates significant
pressure on peak-load generators or on thermal power plants
which may not be able to respond quickly to continue serving
the loads. For the reason, ESS can be a great solution to scale
up or scale down the wind power generation as needed and at
any time.
Therefore, a reasonable sizing of an ESS for a Wind farm could
range between 15 to 25% of the total capacity.
Finally, penalties in tariff rates can be avoided by wind and
solar plant operators, by storing any surplus power produced
or alternatively, by supplementing power from the ESS when
needed to match the actual power needed at any given period
in time.
Taking a look outside of the renewables world, we can
observe in a practical example that a multi-MW ESS (based
on batteries) was installed in Chile, to offload a thermal power
plant of its frequency response ancillary services. The ESS is
in operation since 2009 and is automatically responding to the
frequency fluctuations in the grid.
Whenever frequency drops by 0.3 Hz, the ESS is activated
within 100 ms (milliseconds), unlike the response time of power
plant which was between 5 and 10 minutes.

Large ESS are normally ran under voltages ranging from 750 VDC up to 1100 VDC or even more (up to the limit of
low-voltage, i. e. 1500 VDC).
Bouncing to the other extreme, the end-user applications, we
can consider small commercial or even domestic applications
(as in the diagram of figure 5), where the DC side voltage is
normally not greater than 500 VDC (both for PV panels and
battery units).
N
In this case a centralized inverter coupled with a battery system
is depicted: another possible solution can be two separated
inverters, one for the PV field and a second one for the battery
system. Inside the inverter, of both types, a circuit-breaker or
a switch-disconnector with fuses should be used on the DC
battery side, to provide basic safety functions.

The choice of the suitable overcurrent device
Batteries are not the only type of storage component used
in ESS; another widely used technology is ultracapacitor
(sometimes associated with batteries).
Ultracapacitor technology allows ESS to charge and discharge
far faster than batteries. In other words, the power density of
ultracapacitors is tens of times higher than batteries. However,
ultracapacitor cannot store an amount of energy as large as
batteries.
Short-circuiting an ultracapacitor can lead to a very fast
transient of current, a spike like the one depicted in figure 6.
Almost 20 kA of short circuit can be reached in a very short
time: the overall transient is lasting for less than 3 ms.
In a situation like this, the choice of the overcurrent protection
device can be trickier than the usual.
For example, assume to have a steady-state system designed
for 250A and 500 VDC, which includes an ultracapacitor
storing solution. When selecting the overcurrent protection
for this type of system, a system integrator may choose
a standard automatic circuit breaker, such as ABB Tmax
XT3. This circuit breaker has Icu (rated ultimate short-circuit
breaking capacity) equal to 36kA at 500 VDC and fixed
magnetic threshold at 2500A (10 times the rated current).
However, suppose there is a short circuit with a waverform
similar to that shown in figure 6.

Is this circuit breaker selection correct? Well, maybe yes and
maybe no.
The circuit-breaker selected is for sure able to open 20 kA of
short-circuit current at 500Vdc, but what we have in this case
is not a real short-circuit current, but a spike.
What could happen is that the contacts of the circuit-breaker
would start opening, and then reclose right after, because of
the insufficient energy given by the fastness of the transitory
phenomenon.
Therefore, one possibility is that the circuit-breaker would end
up with the contacts closed at the end of the transitory, and
these contacts may be welded.
ABB has the expertise to help designers and project managers
choose the most appropriate disconnecting and protecting
devices for ESS, in all conditions.

Switch-disconnectors
1500 V DC and up to 500A: OTDC250...500
The OTDC series of switch-disconnectors is also available for operating voltages up
to 1500 V DC from 250A to 500A. Up to two separate 1500 V DC circuits can be
operated with a single device.
The main features of the OTDC250…500 switch-disconnectors include:
− Compactness: thanks to the patented DMB (Dual Magnetic Breaking) technology,
the switches reach 1500 V DC with only 3 poles and a small footprint.
− Easy to install: connections are simple and independent from polarity, for providing
greater wiring flexibility. The operating mechanism can be located between the
poles or on the left side of the switch.
− Factory-installed or jumper kits available.
− Safety: Visible contacts allow a clear indication of position.

Automatic Air Circuit Breakers
Emax DC
Emax DC automatic circuit-breakers is the most innovative and high performing
LV circuit-breaker on the market for DC applications up to 5000 A.
Main characteristics and features are the following:
-SACE Emax DC series of circuit-breakers for direct current applications complying
with the IEC60947-2 .
-Thanks to the exclusive technology applied to the new SACE
PR123/DC and PR122/DC trip units, the SACE Emax DC range allows all
installation requirements to be met and with protection up to 1000V DC for IEC.
Also available in a switch-disconnector version.
-The compact sheet metal structure of the Emax DC features a robust and durable
construction which is directly attributed to its long life expectancies. Available in
fixed-mounted and withdrawable versions.
-Configurable for use in grounded or un-grounded ESS Systems.
-Can be operated locally or remotely, via shunt trip and motor accessories.
-Emax DC can be fitted with the same terminal kits and most accessories common
to the standard Emax range, reducing the need of stock for extra parts.
-With plant voltages higher than or equal to 100V, the electronic trip unit guarantees protection without the need of an auxiliary power supply
-Protection is guaranteed even when the electronic trip unit is not powered thanks
to the PR120/DC module which always equips both the PR122/DC and the
PR123/DC
-PR123/DC not only offers protection but also measurement of current and voltage
of both polarities (+ and -), thus being suitable for any type of network.

earth fault currents. In systems that include power conversion system without at
least a simple DC/AC separation, it’s necessary to install on DC side an RBCO of
B class, according to IEC 60364-7 art. 712.413.1.1.1.2:
“Where an electrical installation includes a DC power supply system without at least
simple separation between the AC side and the DC side, an RCD installed to
provide fault protection by automatic disconnection of supply should be type B.
If the power conversion by construction is not able to feed DC fault current into the

Current sensors
ES range
As components get smaller but more powerful, installing current sensors is
becoming a real problem. But with ES range, the whole thing is child’s play.
By being the first in the field to offer these smaller current sensors that maintain
your high-performance objectives, ABB met the challenge of giving you the space
you always needed.
Once again ABB lead the field by giving installers a chance to choose between two
ways of fastening sensors: horizontally or vertically. This flexibility means that ES
sensors can be installed in any position.
This is a major breakthrough that greatly simplifies the task of systems integrators.
The ES range is the ideal way of reducing the size of equipment.
The main features are:
- P lastic case and insulating resin are self-extinguishing.
- F ixing holes in the case moulding for two positions at right angles.
- Direction of the current: A primary current flowing in the direction of the arrow
results in a positive secondary output current from terminal M.
Primary connection
- Hole for primary conductor.
- T he temperature of the primary conductor in contact with the case must not
exceed 100°C.
Secondary connection
- M olex type HE14 connector
- J ST connector (ref.: B3P-VH)
- 3 x 200 mm cables (cross section 0.38 mm²)

Measurement principle
Using CM-IWx, a pulsating measurement signal is sent to the system to be monitored
and the insulation resistance is calculated. This pulsating measurement signal changes
depending on the insulation resistance and system dispersion capacity. The change in
the insulation resistance can be forecast from this alteration.
When the estimated insulation resistance corresponds to the insulation resistance
calculated in the next measurement cycle and is below the pre-set value, the output
relays are either activated or deactivated depending on the configuration of the device.
This measurement principle is also useful to detect symmetrical insulation faults.

Distribution blocks
DBL
The DBL distribution blocks are adapted to the most recent energy storage system
requirements with a voltage rating going up to 1500V DC IEC (1000V DC UL).
They provide the benefit of 3 configurations in 1 single product: grouping several
inputs into one output for DC applications, or single and multipole splitting for
AC power applications.
The reversible cover facilitates identification and wiring tasks, and the modular
and touch proof design eliminates the need for bus bars, isolators, fasteners or
protection screens.
Finally it saves up to 50% rail space compared to conventional distribution bars.
