PATHION Power certifies Rhombus Energy Systems to supply Bi-Directional Power Conversion Systems (PCS) for its Energy Storage Systems
PATHION Inc., announced today that it has selected and technically certified Rhombus Energy Solutions Inc. as one of its key ecosystem members. Rhombus RBES-125kW Bi-Directional Power Conversion Systems (PCS) complement PATHION Powers Energy Storage Systems (ESS). Rhombus inverters offer high power density and efficiency, while minimizing the total installed cost, by being fully self-contained with integrated grid isolation transformer and closed loop liquid cooling system. The 125kW single stage, grid optimized PCS offers the industry a complete solution for energy storage, frequency regulation, peak shaving, load leveling and other power management applications.
"Like PATHION Power, Rhombus works to solve energy challenges by designing and deploying innovative and efficient power conversion solutions" said PATHION Chairman and CEO Mike Liddle. "We are excited to have them join our ecosystem, providing a full power range of energy conversion products to complement our energy storage systems."
PATHION Inc. manufactures, markets, and sells high-performance, safe, and reliable ESS under the name "PATHION Power". The product lineup features modular storage platforms with integrated advanced lithium-ion batteries ranging from 86 kilowatt-hours in a stand-alone configuration to over 1 megawatt-hour in a containerized unit. The combination of applications make it possible to integrate PATHION Powers ESS into virtually any operating environment and deliver the shortest possible payback time.
Unlike other ESS, PATHION Powers patented energy storage operating system (OSE) architecture provides industry-first benefits that include balancing; whereby, each cell is charged to maximum capacity on a dynamic basis - increasing available energy and extending cell life. The system never needs to be taken offline for balancing or requires shutdown to replace expensive banks of cells when one cell fails. PATHION Powers ESS automatically reconfigures around individual problem cells without loss of power and allows the hot-swapping of single cell replacements. In addition, the system allows for the future addition of advanced chemistries and applications - enabling a migration path to greater energy capacity and enhanced functionality. The results: fault tolerance with both hardware and software investment protection.
"Rhombus President and CEO Richard Sander commented, "We are proud to be a supplier with a history of outstanding reliability, and functionality to the PATHION Power Energy Storage Systems (ESS). With over a decade of producing highly reliable, field proven PCS technologies, we are pleased to work with PATHION Power to deliver leading solutions for a rapidly growing stationary energy storage market."
