EDC Serial Number EDC0000140
Title EPSRC Manifest Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Calibration Tests, The University of Sheffield
Data Location
EDC Stored Dataset
Description The data is from tests performed at The University of Sheffield, on a 1MWh/2MW lithium-titanate battery energy storage (BESS) by Toshiba SCiB Technology, within the EPSRC funded Multi-scale ANalysis for Facilities for Energy STorage (Manifest) Project EP/N032888/1. The system is connected directly to the grid through an 11kV feed, located at Willenhall Primary Substation. Interfacing to grid is achieved through a 2.2MVA ABB PCS100 inverter, and a 2.1MVA dry-type transformer with 1:30.55 ratio.

Other Information The main parameters are related to time-series of grid voltage and frequency, AC and DC voltages and currents, operating conditions (such as for example room temperature), etc.

The experimental background is explained in Experiment_Description_Readme.pdf

The data are time-stamped in the format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS UTC, while the parameters are given using the International System of Units.
This catalogue entry was updated on 2021-02-03 to link directly to the data from the calibration test carried out on 2017-03-01. Previously it linked to the top level of the Sheffield BESS test data at The title was updated to include the words "Calibration Test" to differentiate it from other tests carried out with the Sheffield BESS facility. The previous title was "EPSRC ManIfest Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) The University of Sheffield". No changes have been made to the dataset and no other changes have been made to this catalogue record.
