The technological breakthrough of the electro mobility is closely linked to the development of a fast charging infrastructure. However, today’s grid is not ready to supply the related load peaks. Instead of expanding the grid, stationary energy storage systems (ESS) can be utilized to supply these load peaks at points of weak grid. With the HPC-Booster ads-tec complemented its ESS portfolio with such a compact outdoor storage solution. The HPC-Booster is designed and developed for EV charging in weak grids. The power input is max. 110 kW (AC). The power output is max. 320 kW (DC). The presentation gives detailed insight into the application and reports on the operational experience.
