The EU funded Eniac project will design and develop Lithium-battery-pack systems which manage photovoltaic power feed efficiently and deliver optimized, reliable, low-cost and predictable performance.
Batteries and battery management systems are the essential storage elements in any solar-powered application. These systems can be employed in a variety of different markets and applications, yet reliable long-term service of the battery and system is the common challenge for all of the applications. The BattMan project therefore focuses on these essential elements and targets solar-powered, off-grid street lighting poles as a challenging demonstrator. It will be specified, simulated, designed, prototyped, demonstrated and validated in the project.
