Ecoult has designed and installed a cycling battery / inverter system in a remote, diesel-powered telecom tower in Australia and has monitored system performance over an eight month period. Fuel savings of 40% to 50%+ have been recorded during this time. This paper describes the off-grid telecom market and gives details of the energy storage system and algorithms developed by Ecoult to effect significant fuel savings and fast payback times. Results are applicable to telecoms and other remote diesel micro-grids.
