Modelling Hybrid Lithium-ion & Lead-acid storage
New trend used in off-grid sector is to use Hybrid li-ion + lead acid storage like the solution provide with the Company BOS AG in Germany. Both batteries are used for supplying the load using a BMS for the li-ion which take care of the charge control of both battreis. The solution is very economical, and represents a potential solution for off-grid market.
How can we model such li-ion + lead acid in Homer and compare it to PURE li-ion storage scenario?
Currently, HOMER Pro considers only one battery model at at time w.r.t. Li-Ion and Lead Acid batteries. You cannot consider both the batteries in the same simulation.
