Denchi Unveils SLICE Energy Storage Platform

April 14, 2020 Tiera Oliver

Denchi Group announces the commercial availability of SLICE. Based on the company's Li-Ion battery technology, Denchi's SLICE is a scalable and adaptable energy storage solution.                     

SLICE employs a modular architecture. The solution contains an array of 3.5kWh battery units, using cells of a Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) chemistry. Up to 13 of these can be placed in each cabinet. The cabinets are then combined together to meet the storage capacity criteria defined by the developer, with no excess needing to be paid for.

According to the company, the operational costs associated with electricity usage can be significantly reduced through the deployment of this energy storage solution. 

The batteries in the SLICE cabinets are all connected to a sophisticated management subsystem (which relies on Modbus TCP/IP connectivity). In addition to allowing remote control, this subsystem facilitates the monitoring of ongoing operational performance and can assist with other real-time diagnostic tasks, thanks to a cloud interface (which is accessible using either desktop or mobile devices). Among these tasks are analysis of charge/discharge profiles, as well as in-depth assessment of cells' cycling lifespans. 

Further key functions for the subsystem include regulating ambient temperature and humidity, so that the degrees of efficiency are maintained. Fault detection mechanisms (over-current, over-voltage, over-temperature and Earth-leak) protect against potential damage during power outages, while fire suppression systems can be activated if situations arise that put safety under threat.      

The SLICE platform has been designed to integrate into existing infrastructure. It can be installed directly inside customers' premises, or housed externally within shipping containers placed on site. Underlining its operational robustness, all elements of this solution come with a 10-year warranty.
