According to the latest energy storage report released by GTM Research recently, the application of China's grid side energy storage project in 2018 has continued to increase the use of lithium iron phosphate batteries. With the rise of the energy storage market, in recent years, some power battery companies have deployed energy storage businesses to open up new application markets for lithium iron phosphate batteries. So what are the main application areas of lithium iron phosphate batteries? Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery Manufacturer will come to tell you.


On the one hand, due to its long life, safe use, large capacity, and environmental protection, lithium iron phosphate can be transferred to the energy storage field to extend the value chain and promote the establishment of a new business model. On the other hand, the energy storage system supporting lithium iron phosphate battery has become the mainstream choice in the current market. It has been reported that lithium iron phosphate batteries have been tried for electric buses, electric trucks, user side and grid side FM. With the continuous expansion of capacity and scale, the integration of technology continues to mature, the cost of energy storage systems will be further reduced. After long-term testing of safety and reliability, lithium iron phosphate battery energy storage systems are expected to be renewable in wind power, photovoltaic power generation, etc. Energy grids are widely used for safe grid connection and improved power quality.


On the other hand, the power grid peaks The main means of peak shaving in power grids has always been pumped storage power stations. Because the pumped storage power station needs to build two upper and lower reservoirs, which are restricted by geographical conditions, it is not easy to construct in the plain area, and it has a large area and high maintenance cost. The lithium iron phosphate battery energy storage system is used to replace the pumped storage power station, which responds to the peak load of the power grid, is not restricted by geographical conditions, has free site selection, low investment, small land occupation, low maintenance cost, and plays an important role in the peaking process of the power grid.


Finally there are other areas of application. Lithium iron phosphate battery has been widely used in the military field due to its good cycle life, safety and low temperature performance. The Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery Energy Storage System has a series of unique advantages such as high working voltage, high energy density, long cycle life, and environmental protection, and supports stepless expansion. After the energy storage system is formed, large-scale electric energy storage can be performed. The lithium iron phosphate battery energy storage system is composed of a lithium iron phosphate battery pack, a battery management system, a commutation device (rectifier, inverter), a central monitoring system, a transformer, and the like. During the charging phase, the intermittent power supply or the power grid charges the energy storage system. After the AC power is passed through the rectifier, it is rectified to DC power to charge the energy storage battery module to store energy. During the discharge phase, the energy storage system discharges to the power grid or load, and the energy storage battery module The DC power is inverted by the inverter to AC power, and the inverter output is controlled by the central monitoring system to provide stable power output to the grid or load.
