Regulating charging cycles automatically

In recent years, investments in battery deployment have steadily increased. The profitability of batteries can improve significantly by using large batteries or a pool of smaller batteries to deliver Frequency Containment Reserve (FCR). Responding to favorable prices on the imbalance market can increase profits as well. Senfal’s BatteryController offers both services.

Senfal has a proven battery control technology and can guide customers through the setup process. The BatteryController automatically regulates charging cycles, improving the profitability with minimal effort.

Senfal’s FCR setup is efficient and accurate as a result of experience with TSO pre-qualification procedures.

Senfal’s technology explained

Strategy based on price and asset behavior

The BatteryController delivers FCR by charging or discharging batteries in response to grid frequency deviations. Alternatively, our technology can automatically charge or discharge batteries in reaction to favorable imbalance prices, gaining additional trading profits.

Battery control systems will be interfaced with Senfal’s cloud based software, after which we monitor charging and discharging behavior and run simulations. Going live, we apply our algorithms in a bidding strategy based on price forecasts and asset behavior, thereby maximizing revenues.
