TALENT

Reduction of the cost associated with the integration of batteries in the electrical network.

Description

 

The TALENT project pursues to increase the flexibility of the electric system by reducing the costs associated to the integration of batteries in the grid. To achieve it, three new technological elements will be developed: modular and scalable power electronic topologies, integration of new power electronic devices designed for specific voltage level, and finally systems to manage energy systems that are interoperable and able to be used as a service.

 

Objetives

  • To develop power electronics for batteries in the 400-800V range, 5% more efficient and 20% less costly.
  • To develop power electronics for 1.5 kV batteries based on new IGBT and FWD, 15% less costly.
  • To develop power electronics for 3 kV batteries based on new MOSFET devices, 20% less expensive.
  • To develop a new control architecture, combining cloud-based and local components that will allow to reduce cost in the integration of batteries in virtual power plants.

Actions

  • To coordinate the project.
  • To collaborate in the development and implementation of the cloud-based control architecture.
  • To collaborate in the development of a battery digital twin.

Expected results

  • Power electronics for medium and high voltage batteries that will be between 15% and 20% less costly that current market available products.
  • Cloud-based control architecture for energy systems that will include a battery digital twin to improve battery management.
