Battery Discharge Analysis module verifies the performance of an existing or a sized battery by simulating situations such as shutdowns and emergency conditions.
The module calculates the battery capacity, voltage, current, and output power as the battery discharges through a duty cycle. The battery duty cycle can be calculated from either load current summation or load flow calculations.
When the battery duty cycle is calculated from load flow, the Battery Discharging Analysis also provides bus voltage and branch power along with battery output results.
Several correction factors used in battery sizing calculation, such as battery temperature, aging and initial capacity, can also be considered in the battery discharge calculations.
