GSES is a renewable energy engineering, training and consultancy. It has recently launched the grid-connect PV with battery storage course at their training centre in Botany (NSW), as well as a purpose built mobile training unit. GSES’ practical training for this course includes the SimpliPhi lithium ferro phosphate batteries.
“We chose SimpliPhi because of their strong reputation and use in military applications. It is important to demonstrate products currently available in the market and which we were sure would perform given a proven track record and strong reputation,” saidChris Martell, Principal Engineer of GSES. “We have incorporated SimpliPhi batteries as part of our training centre as well as in our new mobile training unit. The GSES mobile training facility is the first-of-its-kind in the Australian market, and it will commence in Brisbane and extend our training to those users beyond our Sydney base.”
SimpliPhi is known for its compact, scalable, lightweight form factor, 100 percent depth of discharge, over 98 percent efficiency charge and discharge rate and an extended operating temperature range of -20 to 60 C (-4 to 140 degrees F), all without requiring the ventilation or cooling characteristic of other lithium-ion and lead acid batteries. GSES students at both the Botany center and mobile training unit actually wire and configure these SimpliPhi batteries, perform testing and commissioning and wire in a load to complete the system.
