Title: Chino Battery Energy Storage Power Plant: Engineer-of-record report

Abstract

This report is Volume I in a series that documents the Chino 10-MW/4-Hour Battery Energy-Storage Demonstration Project. This record covers the Engineering and Construction time period. It includes a summary of predecessor activities including generic studies of utility-scale battery energy storage and preliminary engineering for the Chino project. This Engineering and Construction record also describes preliminary operations and facility acceptance testing. It further includes sections on Lessons Learned'' and conclusions and recommendations for future battery energy-storage projects. The project was undertaken by Southern California Edison Company and located at its Chino, CA substation. EPRI furnished the ac-dc-ac Power Conditioning System (PCS), and the International Lead Zinc Research Organization, Inc. loaned the lead for the batteries. Exide Corporation furnished 8256 lead-acid cells which are connected in eight parallel strings, each consisting of 1032 cells in series. The capacity and the nominal 2000-volt operating voltage make it the largest battery in the world. The PCS is an 18-pulse, 10-MVA converter-based on gate-turnoff thyristor technology. It was designed, built and delivered by General Electric Company. The Facility Control and Monitoring System is a microprocessor distributed control system, for operator interface, control of auxiliaries, and data acquisition. The complete facility includes battery watering, electrolytemore » air agitation, fire protection, hydrogen detection, ventilation and other subsystems.« less
