It uses only AES- certified, long-life and high-efficiency sealed batteries from a range of suppliers. Its abstracted architecture allows for best price-performance at time of procurement. All battery suppliers are tested and approved for Advancion arrays at AES’ Battery Integration Center, located at Indianapolis Power & Light, so we can guarantee performance.
The power conversion technology meets IEEE 519 and IEEE 1547 standards and is designed to UL1741 and UL508C as applicable. Certified PCS suppliers are pre-qualified for Advancion arrays at AES’ Battery Integration Center.
The platform is incorporated through every level of the array, from the Battery Management System to the Project level controls platform. It uses a dynamically configurable touch screen HMI and its abstract, standards-based architecture enables a least-cost procurement approach to improve asset life and reduce operating costs.
Featuring multiple autonomous layers of control directives combined with manual and automated disconnects to protect operators and the assets during contingent events. Designed with physical and electrical safety in mind from lessons learned from AES’ world-class safety management systems employed in its global fleet of distribution, transmission, generation, and energy storage.
It includes a comprehensive state-of-the-art fire suppression system throughout facilities, including double action pre-action fire suppression system using water. Sized to maintain safe, efficient, and reliable operations, and to preserve the life of the battery cells.
