This project included the conceptual design of a 30 MW x 4 hours Battery Energy Storage System facility (BESS) for location in Southern California.
Advisian undertook the design of the balance of plant to accommodate TESLA battery modules with support systems for the project. Advisian's scope to design the facility entailed civil, mechanical, electrical and structural disciplines. The design included the 220kV electrical switchyard to connect the BESS with a local substation.
This project shows proof of design concepts for integrating large-scale BESS with the grid in a confined environment (suburban) minimizing impact on local commercial establishments and residences, and created additional information for an Energy Storage Database.
