Electrical energy provided by generators such as PV panels and wind turbines can be stored on site for later use using Storage components.
Tip: Electric storage devices are included in the model by specifying them on the Electrical load centre dialog when one of the storage Electrical buss types has been selected.
There are 2 ways to model the define the performance of the electrical storage device:
|•||1-Simple storage - simple definition of the performance of the storage device that is not intended to represent any specific type of storage technology.|
|•||2-Battery - more detailed performance definition of a battery using the kinetic battery model.|
The type of storage device is defined by selecting the appropriate Category option on the Storage dialog.
