Battery monitoring in Mexican hybrid power systems; Monitoreo de las baterias en sistemas de potencia hibridos Mexicanos

Abstract

Hybrid power systems for an autonomous power supply are based on different renewable and fossil energy sources. They are considered as a good option for the power supply of remote areas. In these systems an energy storage is a vital necessity and very often this storage will consist of batteries which are generally connected in series and parallel arrays, or both. In Mexico as in other countries, the most extensively use batteries used for this application are the stationary and electric car type deep cycle batteries. However the experience with them in these systems is generally not very good. One way to overcome this problem is to maintain a regular monitoring of installing monitoring equipment, in order to make preventive actions before a developing fault can have serious consequences and in this manner increase the practical lifetime of the batteries. Unfortunately, battery monitoring is not easy task because most of the hybrid power systems are installed in remote areas which makes it difficult and expensive. In Mexico it has been not possible to maintain a regular monitoring of all hybrid power systems installed, due to the high cost of this work and the lack of founds. The hybrid power systems  More>>

Unfortunately, battery monitoring is not easy task because most of the hybrid power systems are installed in remote areas which makes it difficult and expensive. In Mexico it has been not possible to maintain a regular monitoring of all hybrid power systems installed, due to the high cost of this work and the lack of founds. The hybrid power systems installed in the state of Quintana Roo are the only systems that have been continuously monitored since their installation. This paper gives an overview of the hybrid power systems installed in Mexico, focusing in the battery banks, the way they are being monitored, the main parameters used to detect possible premature problems and the method used to evaluate the battery bank conditions. Finally some results from the battery banks monitoring activities are presented. [Espanol] Los sistemas de potencia hibridos para un suministro autonomo de energia a regiones remotas, estan basados en diferentes fuentes de energia fosiles y renovables. Estos son considerados como una buena opcion para el suministro de energia a areas remotas. En estos sistemas es una necesidad vital el almacenamiento de energia y muy frecuentemente este almacenamiento consiste en baterias que generalmente se conectan en arreglos en serie, en paralelo o una combinacion de ambos. En Mexico, al igual que en otros paises las baterias mas generalmente usadas para esta aplicacion son las baterias estacionarias y las baterias del tipo automotriz de ciclo profundo. Sin embargo la experiencia con ellas en estos sistemas generalmente no es muy buena. Una forma de superar es el de mantener un monitoreo con regularidad instalando un equipo de monitoreo, con el objeto de tomar acciones preventivas antes de que una falla en desarrollo pueda tener serias consecuencias, aumentando de esta manera el tiempo de vida practico de las baterias. Desafortunadamente, el monitoreo de baterias no es una facil tarea porque la mayor parte de los sistemas de potencia hibridos estan instalados en areas remotas, lo que lo hace dificil y costoso. En Mexico no ha sido posible mantener un monitoreo regular de todos los sistemas de potencia hibridos instalados debido al alto costo de este trabajo y a la falta de fondos. Los sistemas de potencia hibridos instalados en el Estado de Quintana Roo son los unicos sistemas que han sido monitoreados continuamente desde su instalacion. Este articulo da una vision general de los sistemas de potencia hibridos instalados en Mexico, enfocandose a los bancos de baterias, la forma como han sido monitoreados, los principales parametros usados para detectar posibles problemas prematuros y el metodo usado para evaluar las condiciones del banco de baterias. Finalmente se presentan algunos resultados de las actividades del monitoreo de bancos de baterias.}
