Fully scalable solutions for ESS applications

GS Yuasa LIM modules are a fully configurable solution which can be used to create powerful Energy Storage Systems (ESS) for all applications and environments and to meet any power requirement. Our modules are easily scalable by design which means systems can range from a single module up to a field of large ESS containers full of thousands of modules.

Common configurations include ESS cabinet style units which can easily be integrated into commercial and industrial spaces to provide a flexible and dependable energy supply. Cabinets can also be fully weatherproof allowing for outdoor installation in a completely flexible footprint.

Containerised ESS systems are housed within a 20 or 40ft unit which can be designed and built for the intended application’s operational requirements. They are weatherproof and can be incorporated onto any site with no need for any internal space.

Engineered for unparalleled reliability

GS Yuasa lithium-ion modules are designed and manufactured using the highest quality components and processes.

Battery management system

Lithium-ion batteries operate as a system and not a stand alone unit. GS Yuasa manufacture and supply all of the key elements required for this battery management system architecture.

Every module is equipped with a battery monitoring PCB which measures cell voltage and module temperature, protecting the battery in case of overcharge, overdischarge or excessive heating.

GS Yuasa PCB LiBM II features

  • Balancing function balances the voltage of connected modules
  • State of charge (SOC) calculation automatically calculates SOC which can be monitored in real time
  • Multiple banks batch monitoring using multiple LiBM II allows monitoring of systems with multiple modules
  • High voltage system specification up to 1500 Volts DC.

Why choose GS Yuasa lithium-ion?

Long cyclic life at high power

GS Yuasa modules have been specifically designed to provide exceptional levels of cyclic performance, even during continuous high power operation. Unlike most lithium-ion options available, they do not compromise cyclic performance to deliver high power.

Superior high charge and discharge performance

Manufactured for class-leading performance in applications where high charge and discharge rates are required. This is particularly important for energy capture applications such as wave power and kinetic energy capture.

Integrated solutions

To ensure ultimate reliability and safety, we design and manufacture GS Yuasa lithium-ion modules as a complete solution. This includes cells, modules, critical control components and advanced management software.

Stainless steel cell container

The number one cause of short circuits in lithium-ion cells results from using nickel plated containers. GS Yuasa cells use stainless steel to eliminate this risk while providing exceptional corrosion resistance.

No requirement for off-line balancing

Thanks to their lithium manganese chemistry, GS Yuasa LIM modules can be operated continuously in partial states of charge. They do not need to be taken out of service to allow cell balancing activities to take place.

Environmentally responsible

Unlike most solutions on the market, GS Yuasa modules are constructed in a way that aids recycling. They use lithium manganese chemistry which is widely available from responsible and recycled sources.
