Akasol NeeoBasix: GridSense-compatible energy management
The energy storage units detect every PV installation and all relevant power consumers in the home, and even optimize all energy flows fully automatically on the basis of learning algorithms and forecasts. Intelligent and offering good scalability, the PV battery system from Akasol can be fitted with the optional GridSense Home Energy Management System, developed by the Zurich-based Alpiq Intec Group.
The NeeoBasix unit with GridSense is made for photovoltaic installations in private households and smaller businesses with peak power of ten kilowatts. GridSense-compatible energy management enables all electricity producers and consumers in the building that are fitted with this technology – PV units, heat pumps, boilers, house batteries, charging stations for electric cars and so on – to be managed and interconnected, and allows the loads borne across all devices to be optimized.
Based on an algorithm developed in-house, various parameters such as grid load, electricity consumption and production are continuously measured, and weather forecasts and electricity tariffs are included in the calculations. The intelligent algorithm also learns the individual behavior of the electricity consumer in question. According to the producer it is easy to set up the intelligent PV storage system: instead of extensive configuration and parameterization processes, the PV storage unit’s user-friendly Plug & Play installation option keeps installation times extremely short. The unit also eliminates the need to purchase additional cables. (nhp)
