Q Energy has built a bespoke battery performance monitoring system for the project in Wiltshire with an intuitive and visual dashboard showing real-time operational data.
It will allow for greater quantities of clean electricity generated by solar and wind to not only balance demand and supply for cost reduction but also support optimal use of the lowest carbon power, which will be key to achieving the UK’s net zero targets.
The system provided by Q Energy collects sub-second, real-time battery cell data which can record up to 18,000 data points every 10 seconds.
Insights from the data are then visualised into a responsive web dashboard with a simple intuitive user interface.
Big data analytics help the system compare the batteries’ actual performance with that expected while identifying any errors and abnormalities which would then trigger an alert for the operation and maintenance team to address the issues, ensuring a smooth process and long-term performance.
Q Energy was founded in 2018 by Dr Li Yao and Vijay Natarajan in Manchester with a vision of building zero carbon communities using the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence.
