Princeton Power Systems has commissioned 17 of its GTIB-30 bi-directional inverters in CODA Energy's 1MWh energy storage system.

CODA

GTIB-30 is a 30kW grid-tied inverter used for advanced batteries in on-grid and off-grid applications.

In December 2014, CODA Energy started operation of a 1,054kWh / 510kW behind the meter lithium-ion energy storage system in the Los Angeles basin.

The system features new lithium-iron phosphate electric vehicle (EV) battery cell packs with the potential of second life EV battery applications.

The project offers large-scale peak shaving for the CODA’s manufacturing facility to support the company’s existing and increasing energy needs.

Princeton Power said GTIB can condition power from alternative energy sources, as well as energy storage, several AC loads, and AC microgrids.

Princeton Power Systems chief strategy officer and co-founder Darren Hammell said: "The applications for the GTIB products are vast, and we are thrilled to see the creative way CODA Energy has deployed them in this project and throughout California and the US."

CODA Energy COO and CTO Peter Nortman said: "CODA Energy is installing networked behind-the-meter energy storage system configurations at scale today for our commercial and industrial customers.

"This project showcases an array of 34 CODA Energy battery packs and 17 Princeton Power Systems GTIB-30 inverters that operate in concert to provide up to 510 kW of peak shaving for our engineering team, manufacturing line and product integration areas."
