Time shift between generation and consumption
Battery Energy Storage or BES will play an important role in the future of load balancing. Sun and Wind are often not available 24/7, but our consumption is.
BES control method
BES will require information about price/scarcity of electricity. When to charge and discharge? DigitalTF provides the necessary information by providing price/scarcity and the 24-hour prediction of it. Using the 24-hour predicted profile, it will be straightforward for the BES microcontroller to determine when to charge and when to discharge, as well as the speeds of doing so.
A low-cost solution
DigitalTF will enable easy integration of scattered small BES units in the LV grid. Because DigitalTF is available to every device plugged into a wall socket, even portable hand-carried units can participate without commissioning or installation.
