The CALB CA100 is a 3.2V 100Ah cell manufactured by the China Aviation Lithium Battery Company. CALB is a state-owned Chinese corporation that was established in 2007. CALB cells are LFP technology, marketed as a safe, high-rate battery.
For the purposes of the trial, cells have been connected for a total capacity of 200Ah at a nominal voltage of 51.2 V. The battery cells are monitored and balanced by an external BMS manufactured by REC in Slovenia.
The REC BMS is connected to the SMA Sunny Island inverter that will charge/discharge the batteries.
