Helwig, A. and Ahfock, A. (2011) Sizing nickel iron batteries for RAPS systems. In: 2011 IET Renewable Power Generation Conference (RPG 2011) , 6-8 Sep 2011, Edinburgh, UK.
Nickel-iron batteries have long life expectancy and are tolerant of abuse or poor charge regimes. However their larger internal impedance often results in premature voltage cut-out with remote area power supplies (RAPS) inverters. A new method for sizing nickel iron batteries is proposed, which incorporates a technique that helps address this problem at the design stage. An economic analysis is presented which reveals that nickel-iron batteries can represent a cost effective solution in some RAPS applications.
