Proposed modelling parameters and variables.

  Value Comment
DESS storage capacity 10 kWh Existing
PV array size 3 kWp Existing
PV inverter size 2.5 kW Existing
Load factor 1 No adjustment of load
Maximum depth of discharge 95% As set in real system
Discharge efficiency 95% Calculated from data seta
Maximum discharge rate 9 kW Specification
Charging efficiency 95% Calculated from data seta
DESS parasitic load 182 W continuous Established to create best match to observations

The observed efficiency is a 90% “round trip” efficiency. The charge/discharge efficiencies are set to give this combined result.
