20MW Lithium-Ion Battery Containers Finished!

                                                         

Power Systems & Controls has just shipped the final 40′ Lithium-Ion Battery container, which houses 2MW of power storage. This system is composed of (10) such units for a total power capacity of 20MW. PS&C has been supporting Parker Hannifin, Mitsubishi, and many other strategic partners for this specific application for some time. This will be the first time in history a project like this has been completed that will be both profitable and non-government funded. A breakthrough for Alternative Energy’s capability and potential to become a viable long-term solution.

The lithium-ion battery Shelters were designed to support renewable power generation sources to maintain grid frequency stability, as well as, the ability to handle peak shaving. Advancements in battery technology and battery based storage systems are gaining in popularity when compared to more traditional means. This makes it ideal for frequency regulation, peak shaving, renewable capacity firming, load following, ramp rate control, power factor control, black start, etc. We are excited about this milestone and look forward to supporting our partners on even larger projects in the future!

PS&C Powers U.S. Navy’s High Energy Laser Weapons

                                                                       

Power Systems & Controls has been selected by the U.S. Navy to provide a HEMP and TEMPEST rated power supply system for their emerging High Energy Laser Weapon systems.

Background: High Energy Laser (HEL) Weapons have the potential to add unique capabilities to the Naval and Joint arsenal. Precision engagement at the speed of light with a deep magazine brings new options to address difficult threats in non-traditional ways. Technology advances in both the military and civilian sectors have led to improvements in key HEL system components and fueled innovative approaches to the present development of HEL weapons. The Directed Energy Warfare Office (DEWO) at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) is a leader in the transition of this new capability from science and technology to the warfighting solutions and systems.

Focus: The DEWO leads multiple projects critical for HEL weapon development and evaluation. General areas of focus are in laser weapon system prototyping and testing, lethality and weapon effectiveness assessment, and precision tracking and beam control at high power.

Current Efforts: The DEWO HEL team is leading the technical development of a Laser Weapon System for the U.S. Navy. Testing of the first prototype in June 2009 successfully demonstrated tracking, engagement, and destruction of five threat-representative Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), a Navy first. These results validate the military utility of HEL for counter-UAV missions. This system also serves as a foundation that, as basic technologies mature, will be able to address a growing number of targets at increasing tactical ranges.

HEL Assets:

1) Multiple HEL laser sources including eight 5.5kW fiber lasers, precision high power diagnostics and beam profiling equipment, and the expertise and experience to make these difficult measurements.

2) Modeling tools including a critical target effects and vulnerability analysis module developed as an extension of NSWCDD kinetic lethality codes.

3) Laboratories located on the Potomac River Test Range including land-to-land test sites of 1.1, 2.5, and 4.0km and a dedicated laser backstop facility with over-water access. A planned 100m instrumented high power laser tunnel will also provide another unique capability for addressing the development challenges of high power beam control in the maritime environment.
