    Launched testing service for Electrical Energy Storage Systems


    Energy Storage

    Integrating renewable energy sources like solar and wind into our power grids is essential for building a greener and more sustainable future. But balancing the intermittent nature of these energy sources with growing consumer demands is clearly a challenge. A natural solution is use of electrical energy storage (EES) systems to manage the ebb and flow of energy production and consumption.

    An EES system assists in balancing the demand and supply of electricity by storing excess energy when production exceeds consumption levels and
    releasing it when the demand is higher than current production levels. Other than acting as an intermediary in the power grid for renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, an EES system can also act as an intermediary when there is a high energy demand in a short time (for example high-speed car charging stations).

    Yet, ensuring the efficiency, reliability, and safety of EES systems requires thorough verification and testing at the different stages of development and deployment.
    Nemko has for this purpose launched a special testing service for EES systems, involving the following two evaluation stages:

    • Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT)
      This is to ensure that the EES system meets all specified requirements and functions correctly before it is shipped to the client's site. It allows the vendor to correct any issues at the manufacturing site where all the necessary technical resources are available and helps to control the project timeline and budget. It also reduces the chances for issues occurring at the installation site before commissioning and operation.
    • Site Acceptance Testing (SAT)
      Once installed in its destination site, this testing validates that the EES system operates as intended within its designated environment. It shall ensure that the system is properly integrated with other systems for smooth operation and is complying with the relevant regulations and standards for safety, performance, reliability etc.
    • By confirming system integrity and verifying compliance relevant requirements, SAT is crucial for
      minimizing operational risks and for ensuring long-term reliability.
