Electric Forklifts

Lead acid is the dominant battery technology used in the electric forklift market despite serious shortcomings. Lead acid batteries need regular maintenance for best performance. Charging times are long and requires a cool down period before using which leads to utilization of two or more batteries for each forklift to alternate usage and charging. Lead acid batteries are bulky and contain hazardous materials. Therefore changing batteries incur additional manpower and cost. Deep discharge quickly leads to degradation of the battery. Lead acid batteries have lower energy and power density compared to other modern battery technologies.

Attempts in the last few years to replace lead acid batteries with Li-ion batteries remain limited due to higher costs.

Applications  

Renewable Energy Storage

Electrical Grid Applications 

 

Renewable Energy Storage

Carbon neutrality refers to achieving net zero carbon dioxide emissions by balancing carbon dioxide emissions with removal  or simply eliminating carbon dioxide emissions altogether. 

Reducing carbon emissions (low-carbon economy) to zero through changing energy sources and industry processes. Shifting towards the use of renewable energy  reduces Greenhouse-gas  emissions. Although both renewable and non-renewable energy produce carbon emissions in some form, renewable energy has a lesser to almost zero carbon emissions which produces much less carbon emissions compared to fossil fuels.

It has become mandatory to use renewable energy sources in order to reduce the carbon footprint. Utilization of renewable energy should become widespread from large scale applications  to individual home application.  The biggest obstacle  is the cost of energy storage. Thanks to  New Generation Nickel-Zinc Battery  renewable  energy would became widespread.

 

     Electrical  Grid 

In the electrical energy transformation process, the grid-level energy storage system plays an essential role in balancing power generation and utilization.New Generation Nickel Zinc Batteries  have considerable potential for application to grid-level energy storage systems because of their rapid response, modularization, and flexible installation. Among several battery technologies, our batteries  exhibit high energy efficiency, long cycle life, and relatively high energy density.  The  batteries applicable to grid-level energy storage systems is in terms of the following grid services:

 

Frequency regulation

UPS & BACK UP POWER

Why not VRLA or GEL

VRLA,GEL Batteries are the most widely used batteries in UPS. 

Battery failure is the leading culprit behind the majority of UPS catastrophes.  Even if UPSs are used only a few times a year, they may not deliver sufficient power  when needed. 

Leading Causes of UPS Battery Failure

Poor storage of unused batteries – Even as a battery sits unused, its lifetime begins to decrease. That’s because lead-acid batteries automatically discharge small amounts of energy.

This small amount of recharges  shortens the cycle-life of the batteries.

High ambient temperature – The rated capacity of every battery is based on an ambient temperature of 77°F (25°C). Any variation, but especially increased temperature, can affect performance and lifespan. As a general rule, for every 15°F above the recommended ambient temperature, the expected life of the battery is reduced by 50 percent.

Over-cycling – After a UPS operates on battery power during a power failure, the battery recharges for future use, an event called the discharge cycle. When a battery is installed, it is at 100 percent of its rated capacity. However, each discharge and subsequent recharge slightly reduces the capacity of the battery.

Improper float voltage – Every battery manufacturer will specify the charging voltage ranges for their own cell design. If a battery is consistently charged outside of these parameters, it can cause significant damage.

Undercharging or low voltage can cause sulfate crystals to form on the battery plates. These crystals will eventually harden and reduce the available capacity of the battery over time.

Incorrect battery application – UPS batteries are made specifically for UPSs, just as other batteries are made specifically for their respective appliances. UPS batteries are built to deliver extremely high rates of energy for a short time, generally up to 15 minutes.

Conversely, other batteries, such as telecom and switchgear batteries, are designed to run for longer periods of time, typically between four and eight hours. If a user runs a telecom application with a UPS battery, it will force the battery to run for much longer than its intended purpose. This could cause the battery’s plates to overheat and fail.

Stop-Start LSI  

Stop-start systems on new vehicles are becoming a common feature these days and it’s a fairly easy system to understand.

A stop-start system demands the same task be performed dozens of times a day. And it’s not just that constant stop-start power that’s needed either.

Just as in any other vehicle, when the engine is not running, everything else needs to be used – from the infotainment systems to lights, from the air conditioning to a phone charger – strains the battery.

That sort of heavy lifting requires a battery with some extra  new features . And that’s where the expensive  start-stop batteries come in.  Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB)  lead-acid battery technology is introduced the market.

So Lead-Acid battery producers claim that '' As an approximation, EFB batteries will provide 270,000 engine starts, compared to 30,000 starts from standard flooded product.Laboratory evaluation is boasting 4-5 times the cyclic durability of standard conventional flooded product and typically 16% higher starting power. '' 

Besides all those claims car producers still looking for new solutions- they install 2nd backup batteries in the cars. Briefly they are not satisfied with  recent solutions.  

Main Advantages of ''New Generation Ni-Zn Batteries''

More than 100,000 engine start-stop performed with no capacity loss. As an approximation it will provide more than 1,000,000 engine starts.

 

20-30 times the cyclic durability of standard EFB Batteries. It   provides to work all- AC, infotainment systems, lights etc. with smaller  battery.
