Soraya Romo, General Manager of BCARE, spin off emerging from CIC energiGUNE in order to offer added value services to the industry on matters of energy storage, has presented today at the VII Smart Grids Conference the monitoring and real-time diagnosis system of the state of health of the substation batteries and Smart Grids, that has been developed and implemented successfully for i-DE Grupo Iberdrola.
“The essential innovation of the project is based on the design and validating method of the diagnosis model, which uses as an identification strategy the correlations between measurable variables and electrochemical parameters of each battery” has pointed out Soraya Romo. “In this sense, it is very important to have been able to utilize an analysis protocol with individual characterization and aging trials in every model of battery that has been analyzed, as well as the following Post-Mortem diagnosis, which has been developed at CIC energiGUNE”.
The presentation done by Soraya Romo at the conference, which has been celebrated entirely online, is specifically based on the article “Optimization of the TCO in batteries by real-time monitoring of the state of health with advanced models”. The article gathers the work done for i-DE Grupo Iberdrola for the management of its substation batteries and Smart Grids based on predictive electrochemical models, in which a state of health diagnosis is implemented with the objective of facilitating the maintenance, minimizing costs and elongating their lifetime.
