GS Yuasa Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6674; “GS Yuasa”) today announced that it has launched a new three-phase interconnected power storage system called “Three-phase LINE BACK Meister” with a rated output of 10kVA and 20kVA.
The Three-phase LINE BACK Meister is equipped with LIM50EL series industrial-use lithium-ion batteries, and can be used for a variety of different purposes including reducing electricity costs through peak-cutting and self-consumption of renewable energy, as well as providing back-up electricity to specific loads during emergencies. The system also can be used in a wide range of applications including virtual power plants (VPPs)*1 and can also be linked with electric vehicle chargers.
GS Yuasa will continue to respond to diverse needs such as effective utilization of renewable energy and enhancement of business continuity and disaster response capabilities through sales of the Three-phase LINE BACK Meister and other power storage systems.
1. Achieved industry’s highest efficiency*2 of 96.5%
The product achieved electricity conversion efficiency of 95.0% (maximum electricity conversion efficiency of 96.5%) by using full SiC-FET*3 for electricity conversion system.
2. Standard installation of system parallel-off charge function
The system can be isolated from the power grid allowing the use of electricity generated from solar cells alone to directly charge lithium-ion batteries, which enables development of self-consumption systems that utilize renewable energy to the maximum extent.
3. Superior silent performance
High frequency sounds generated during operation have been reduced through setting of switching frequency*4.
4. Designed with high durability and ease of maintenance in mind
The main components are made of highly durable materials and can withstand 15 years of use*5. The structural design also takes into account ease of maintenance and replacement of consumable parts to ensure long-term worry-free usage.
5. Highly user-friendly touch panel
Intuitive operation using the touch panel enables operation mode setting, charge/discharge setting, and visual confirmation of operational status.
6. Solar cell power charging operation mode
The product has a surplus electricity charge function, where it charges the storage batteries with surplus electricity when the power generated by solar cells is greater than power usage. This is discharged during periods of high electricity demand, enabling waste-free usage of generated power.
7. Self-consumption operation mode
Setting the product to self-consumption operation mode facilitates the building of a system that does not feed back into the power grid.
8. Power load backup
The product enables backup of power loads to maintain operation of necessary facilities such as pumps, air-conditioners, and elevators*6 during emergencies.
