Energy Storage Modules (ESM)
Single or three phase system in arc-proof enclosures up to 5 MW / 4 hours with output voltage range from 120 V to 40.5 kV.
An energy storage system is a packaged solution that stores energy for use at a later time. The system’s two main components are the DC-charged batteries and bi-directional inverter.
ABB’s Energy Storage Module (ESM) portfolio offers a range of modular products that improve the reliability and efficiency of the grid through storage. In addition to complete energy storage systems, ABB can provide battery enclosures and Connection Equipment Modules (CEM) as separate components.
The ESM portfolio maintains the balance between generation and demand, benefitting the grid in a number of ways:
- Provides smooth grid integration of renewable energy by reducing variability
- Stores renewable generation peaks for use during demand peaks
- Flattens demand peaks, thereby reducing stress on grid equipment
- Supports infrastructure as loads increase with electric vehicle use
