Battery Sizing

Battery Sizing Analysis

Selective   Efficient   Powerful
Battery Sizing Analysis is used to select the most appropriate battery bank, verify the maximum capability of the existing batteries, and easily simulate a wide range of backup, control, and other scenarios.
Battery Library

The Battery Sizing module determines the number of strings, number of cells, and cell size of a battery for a designated duty cycle and also compensates for real-life variables such as temperatures, aging, and initial capacity that apply to these type of critical electrical systems.

The number of cells is determined to satisfy the maximum system voltage during the battery charging period and the minimum system voltage during the battery discharging period. The number of strings and cell size is determined to provide sufficient power to the load cycle considering the minimum system voltage and the minimum operating temperature.
