Some practical examples:

  • An SME wants more of its employees to drive electrically, but the connection to the business is too small to charge the cars. The solution: storing (PV) energy in the ATEPS system which can then charge the cars through the built-in converter, with more power than is available on the mains connection.
  • The network operator is experiencing problems due to congestion and asks companies to switch off their PV systems. That means a longer payback period for the PV plant and a smaller share of green energy that is used. The solution: storage of the PV Energy in the ATEPS system so that it can still be supplied or consumed in the evening, when the other PV systems no longer deliver.
  • A manufacturer wants to purchase a new production machine but has heard that the start-up capacity required for this cannot be guaranteed by the network operator. The solution: The ATEPS system measures the power peak during the start-up of the machine and adds additional energy “behind the meter”. This also avoids the costs for peak consumption and those for increasing the grid connection.

PV Energy, Peak Shaving, Network Control, Contracted Power and Congestion.

The above are heard more and more when talking about the energy transition. With more solar panels and solar meadows, there is pressure on the cables in the Netherlands. So busy that sometimes there is no more room to transport even more energy. On the other hand, the electrification of transport is also a challenge for the same network.

For these types of applications, ATEPS has developed a compact energy storage system in which energy can be stored to be consumed at a later time or, if there is space on the network again, to return this energy.

The ATEPS system has a modular structure of 19 “cabinets and starts with 32.5kWh storage capacity and 30kW capacity. It can easily be expanded in steps of 32.5kW and 30kW to 120kW and practically infinite storage capacity. For larger capacities, ATEPS has a series of systems that are completely assembled and placed in a container.
