Attend Trimark’s Presentations at Solar Power International, Energy Storage International, and North America Smart Energy Week
Trimark has quite a line-up at Solar Power International (SPI) in September. In addition to visiting our booth #3218, mark you calendars to attend our presentations to build your knowledge base.
Transforming Data Into Information and Knowledge
Wednesday, September 25 – 11:00 AM – 11:30 AM – Location 251D
In this presentation, we will discuss how to diagnose the condition of PV systems and monitoring PV systems in real-time to keep the PV system operating in an optimal condition. Once a problem is detected in in the system, the information is used to make better decisions to avoid risk. For example, detecting equipment failure and identifying key module degradation patterns are crucial for the health of PV systems. The key challenge to accomplish this is forecasting PV generation in real-time. This becomes a big data issue.

BESS: Selecting the Right Size and Type of Energy Storage to Support Your PV System
Wednesday, September 25 – 3:40 PM – 3:55 PM – Location 253A – Technical Session
When integrating a battery energy storage system (BESS) with distributed PV generation, it’s essential to compare the characteristics of various battery types, as well as size options. This presentation will address the shortcomings of the commercially available battery sizing tools. It will also outline the methodology behind a cost analysis that incorporates investment costs, maintenance costs, and the benefits of installing a BESS. In addition, it will also cover energy storage applications, technologies, and requirements, such as peak shaving, ramp rate limiting, and grid reliability. The goal is for the BESS to fulfill the anticipated needs at the lowest cost, while maximizing the lifetime of the battery.
Speaker: Scott Barrington, Business Development Manager
