Electrical Energy Storage Systems Unit 13: Electrical Design of an EESS – Standards and Basic Requirements
This unit looks further into applications for electrical energy storage and some of the impacts for system designers. Note that the details of all applications are so specific to suppliers, market design and organisations that only high-level details can be provided.
All prices shown are exclusive of VAT which will be added at checkout.
Director and Principal Consultant at G Kenyon Technology Ltd, Graham has established his reputation designing and implementing control and information management systems in the challenging environments presented by world-class construction programmes in the airport and railway industries.
Graham is well versed in standard-setting, as he serves as Chair of both the IET’s Wiring Regulations Policy Committee and JPEL/64 Sub-Committee D for BS 7671, and is a member of the CIBSE’s Electrical Services Group Committee. He has supported many other committees during his involvement with IET Standards.
Graham is co-author of the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, author of the IET Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installation, and editor of some of the IET’s Wiring Regulations publications: Guidance Note 5 Protection against electric shock (8th Edition); Guidance Note 6 Protection against overcurrent (8th Edition); and Electrical installation design guide (4th Edition).
Dr Andrew F Crossland CEng PhD MEng. Andrew is a specialist in interdisciplinary modelling - combining social, financial and technical modelling to develop and deliver energy projects. He has worked in the railway, electrical distribution, research and solar industries developing new techniques and models for the rapidly changing, and increasingly low carbon energy mix. He won the Energy UK “Rising Star” Award for his work in the sector in 2017.
Andrew founded the energy tracking system MyGridGB, charting the British electricity mix, carbon emissions and fossil fuel consumption in real time. Through this he works to provide an unbiased view of the potential and contribution of different energy sources.
As an Energy Storage Specialist for three years at SolarCentury, Andrew helped to developed on residential, large battery and microgrid projects in the UK and East/Southern Africa. Andrew was also Chair of the Behind the Meter Energy Storage Group at the Solar Trade Association at this time.
In 2018, Andrew joined Infratec in New Zealand working on energy projects across New Zealand and the Pacific. He is also a director of Advance Further Energy Ltd which provides specialist energy storage consultancy services in the UK.
• Understand electricity arbitrage, i.e. the use of electrical energy storage to take advantage of the changing price for electricity and how to configure storage for such applications.
• Understand network tariffs and how storage can reduce high network charge periods.
• Understand what peak shaving is with respect to electrical energy storage.
• Understand ancillary services including what they are and how electrical energy storage can provide them.
Learners are expected to have a working knowledge of BS 7671 IET Wiring Regulations and access to copies of BS 7671, IET Guidance Notes 1 and 3 and IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, 2nd Edition.
