The Q-Battery - intelligent storage systems for the Quantum Grid
The process and devices described in US patent US 10,361,564 B2 add another important component to GIP's Quantum Grid: a novel intelligent storage system for regenerative energy systems, the Q-Battery or Q-Energy-Storage.
This invention enables GIP to realize unique and intelligent batteries and hybrid storage systems for regenerative energy systems. Compared to conventional batteries and storage systems, the Q-Battery enables system-related supply gaps to be bridged more efficiently and dynamically. This novel storage system enables the Quantum Grid to leverage the advantages of packet-based power transmission even better than before.
The core of the invention is the power crossbar for dynamic and intelligent control of a wide range of storage media (supercapacitors, batteries, mechanical rotary storage, etc.) and their intelligent packet-based energy management.
The control and energy management of the Q-Battery is implemented with Xyna software technologies such as Xyna-Phi and XAI. These and other Xyna technologies are the central factor without which the quantum leap of the Quantum Grid and the Q-Battery would not be possible. It is only through Xyna technology that a conventional "dumb battery" becomes a "thinking battery". In the process, some of the inverter technology currently installed in solar and wind generators can also be saved by having these tasks performed by a Q-Battery with the corresponding Quantum Grid router function.
The field of application of the Q-Storage goes far beyond the previous approaches "Quantum Grid" and "Quantum Grid out of the box". For example, this novel energy storage system is ideally suited for on-board power supply of satellites or for lunar and Mars missions.
With this new invention and its patenting, GIP can confirm and further expand its leading position in worldwide Energy Internet research.
