Dr. Minyi Liu，Huaneng Clean Energy Research Institute, Director of Energy Storage Institute, “Generation-side DC Energy Storage Technology Development and Engineering Application"
Abstract: Generation-side energy storage system requires a system level integration research, systematically solving stability, safety, efficiency and economy issues for the battery energy storage, developing integrated testing platform, battery and thermal management, battery energy control system, and key module DC-DC control systems. Adapting flat tree-structure DC-DC PCS energy storage solution, or an independent charging-discharging for every battery pack, eliminates effectively the inconsistency issues in both serial and parallel configurations, while simplifies the system control logic and increases system level safety and reliability.
