Residential battery energy storage is expected to add considerable value to urban rooftop PV systems under Time-of-Use (TOU) retail electricity tariff structures. Lithium ion batteries in particular could provide an efficient means of shaving residential seasonal evening peak demand. In this paper, daily cycling behavior of a 73 Watt-hour (Wh) prototype lithium ion battery is analyzed on an accelerated basis to study its daily cycling characteristics as in a PV coupled system. Summer specific… CONTINUE READING
