The Battery Interactive Grid Interactive (BIGI) Inverter is a multi-port power converter that allows for the seamless combination of renewable power generation with energy storage. The system is designed for utility interactive functionality.

The Battery Integrated 250kW Inverter (BIGI-250) is a unique and innovative three port power inverter that is poised to become an integral part of the smart-grid supporting distributed power generation and demand response applications.

The BIGI-250 allows energy from multiple energy sources to be harvested, stored and distributed. Some of the changes and opportunities in the electricity market that are evolving now and precipitating the transition to advanced systems requiring the Grid Interactive Inverter technology include:

Solar Backup Power – With the Grid Interactive Inverter it is possible to integrate PV arrays with battery storage, allowing the inverter to continue operating when the sun goes down; saving fuel, money, and increasing positive perception of solar systems.

Energy Storage Integration – Integrating the Grid Integrated Inverter with the solar array and energy storage provides a broad range of possibilities. When multiple loads, storage, and generation sources are managed effectively through a Grid Interactive Inverter, the value, reliability, and security of the energy system are maximized. All available resources are being utilized to their maximum efficiency and effectiveness, based on the price signals and environmental signals available.

Regulatory Services – Area frequency regulation, VAR support, and other services are increasingly being monetized by grid regulators such as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland (PJM) Interconnection. Solar resources can provide their full value as a capacity resource when combined with load control or energy storage through the BIGI. The Battery Interactive Grid Interactive (BIGI) Inverter is a multi-port power converter that allows for the seamless combination of renewable power generation with energy storage.
