This project will investigate the applicability and merits of battery chemistries for use in a utility substation, where longevity, reliability, and security are prime considerations. The project aims to characterize the process of battery aging when batteries are used under representative utility substation loading profiles in order to determine how fast the batteries will age and what signatures may be used to determine how close the batteries are to the end of their life so that pro-active maintenance work may be initiated. The findings of the project will be instrumental in enabling Manitoba Hydro and other utilities to gain an in-depth understanding of alternative battery technologies and to save cost and resources when such substation batteries are installed.
