LACK OF BATTERY warranty monitoring MIGHT
cause YOU some unwanted SURPRISES
When battery energy storage systems (BESS) WARRANTY TERMS ARE not followed and respected you may find that:
YOUR BESS CAPACITY REDUCES
FASTER THAN EXPECTED
All batteries degrade over time. But suppose the energy extracted from your battery asset is not on the level you have planned originally. In that case, it can mean that you cannot meet your revenue targets or keep the commitments made with the regulator or end-customer. In the worst case, your BESS investment can even generate losses if the actual lifetime is much shorter than initially anticipated.
THE WARRANTY COVERAGE
does not APPly
You might face a difficult discussion with your supplier if you have been operating your energy storage outside the warranty limits. It gets even more complicated if you don’t have any evidence to show how the battery has been operated from the warranty perspective.
Akkurate diagnose is here to help you
Akkurate DIAGNOSE is a remote battery diagnostics and prognostics software platform that helps you to keep track of your battery assets and allows you to:
- Have all your different battery warranty term requirements configured in a single platform.
- Get notifications when any warranty limits are exceeded.
- Have a complete view of the current level of degradation and warranty status of all your battery assets.
REAL TIME WARRANTY MONITORING
Customizable DIAGNOSE warranty monitoring module collects and stores detailed warranty parameter data throughout the battery life. In case of warranty disputes concerning energy storage performance guarantees, historical data from the warranty parameters is needed. Warranty monitoring and related alerts also enable the BESS operator to act and adjust the battery operation to comply with the warranty terms.
DIAGNOSE provides detailed information about the battery’s current state of health and a prediction on battery degradation as well as remaining expected lifetime. Realistic cycling expectancy and capacity degradation models that consider the battery usage patterns can be used to evaluate how well the supplier provided warranty guarantees would hold in future with the current usage profile. These predictions can also be used in your medium and long term capacity planning so that unnecessary capacity shortages can be avoided.
