New smart meter solution to improve storage system's PV self-consumption
In practical applications of the integrated solar energy storage system, most power stations will divide the load into critical load and non-critical load, because for users of these power stations, the power consumption requirements of critical loads are higher, such as database stations or special electrical equipment, on the contrary, the electricity demand of non-critical loads is relatively low. Distinctive treatment for critical and non-critical loads can greatly reduce the capital investment of the power station. Therefore, in this kind of system, many users hope that the clean energy from the sun can be used for both critical loads and non-critical loads, so that not only can renewable energy be fully utilized, but also reduce the cost of grid electricity. In order to fulfill these user demands, ATESS has proposed a solution to add a smart meter to the original energy storage system.
